In 2005 Disney released Season 1 of The Muppet Show on DVD. In 2007, Season 2 was released. In 2008, Season 3 got it’s turn. And in 2864, we might get to see Seasons 4 and 5 of The Muppet Show released to the public – if we’re lucky.
We know that music rights are currently the main hold up on the release of these last 2 seasons. Also, according to Martin Baker, part of the issue has to do with the audio, as the original backing tracks were wiped, meaning that any song from these episodes only exists in it’s full music-vocal form, making any type of remixing or corrections almost impossible.
But we here at The Muppet Mindset are people of action, and we’ve decided to bring you some of Seasons 4 and 5, right here on the site.
While we do not advocate internet piracy and copyright infringement, it’s hard to ignore that a lot segments from these unreleased episodes are online. Today we’re bringing you just a few of the clips from the first Season 4 episode!
