    This might sound Somewhat Unlikely, but I wish The JHC or SOFA entertainment would release The Great Santa Claus Switch on DVD!

    I personally would love to see it on DVD. Is it available online anywhere?

    It's on youtube in six parts, but the quality isn't so hot. This may very well have been from its first (and possibly only) brodcast.

    I believe the issue with seeing it on DVD is much the same as other licensing issues. As far as I know, someone in the way of Ed Sullivan's family or company or something owns the special as a whole, yet Disney would own the rights to many of the early characters. Yet at the same time, I don't know the exact details of the JHC to Disney transfer, but I wouldn't be surprised if JHC still owns the rights to some of the characters in the special that were unused otherwise (i.e. Thig).

    But Still it would have been cool if something resolved!

    I definitely agree. I would like to see it released, though with Disney's non-budging on things and the rights issue, it's very unlikely. But it could happen.

    Well at this point I guess we'll have to wait and see!

    I mean, if you had told me back in 2007 that there was going to be a new Muppet movie in 2011, I'd have told you you were nuts, so it just goes to show that with the Muppets, anything can happen.

    I hope it will.

    You know, there's a high quality audio of four songs that came from a video recording The Great Santa Claus Switch on Youtube.

    Check it out!

    There was never a Santa Switch LP - these are just made from the video.

    You shouldn't post things as fact if you're unsure.
