I'm SOOOO excited for this release!! There are such great guest stars in the second season. My favorites are Don Knotts (especially for "the PuppetMan" song), Edgar Bergen, Madeline Kahn, George Burns, and Elton John. August can't arrive soon enough!
Surely this has been one of the longest delays for a TV-on-DVD set (I doubt Disney would have bothered with a Season 2 if the first one didn't sell well). Curous as to the music rights situation this time around
hopefully the weasels that control the music publishing rights didn't jack the Muppets too hard. Supposedly the insane charges from music publishers controlling songs from the '50s is why Sha Na Na will never see the light of day on DVD.
The music publishing industry are a bunch of dinosaurs. They haven't adjusted their business strategies since the days when sheet music was the primary form of music purchasing, sometime during the Coolidge Administration.
