Why was the pitch reel cut? I did some digging and (unlike the folks at Jim Hill Media want you to think) it was for pure legal reasons - not Disney sensoring the Muppets and trying to make them more kiddie. It is not because Kermit says "****", it is because the CBS logo Kermit stands in front of is a trademark of CBS, and they didn't give Disney an OK to put it on the DVD. Now it is techniclly possible to digitly fit this (paint out the logo), but when it came down to it they just did not have the time or money left to do this to to the bonus feature (they were already pushing it with all the music rights, and what not). It is a shame it got cut, but it is a bonus feature (not the main feature) so we should be happy we got anything. There were some cuts made to the set due to legal reasons, but rather than get upset about the 10-minuets that Disney can not sell, be happy that there is over 610 minuets of Muppet fun now avalible on remastered DVD in a way we've never had before. The collection is great, it is not flawless, but it is still excellent and worth the money.
