    They are great vids, notice Martin G. Baker on the Veterinarian's Hospital set. I wonder there's more of them and has Jim and the rest crew has seen them?

    I don't know who any of those people are, but I assume they all worked on the Muppet show? Seemed like most of them were British; I didn't realize it was filmed in England. Wish we would've gotten to see the actual Muppet performers as well.

    Yup it was made in ATV studios in Elstree, England. That's why you occasionally hear references to British culture such as Statler mentioning The Manchester Guardian newspaper.

    And actually I think I recognize a couple of these guys from the Of Muppets and Men documentary! :halo:

    It may also SURPRISE alot of people but ATV the same company that did the Muppet also did 1974: "Julie on Sesame Street" Special.

    Wow--just watched this. (I'm supposed to be finishing a paper.) This is amazing, incredible. Just once before I die I would like to work in an environment as creative and driven and flat-out maniacal as that. People like Jim somehow manage to bring out the very best that people have to offer by expecting the impossible and embracing it with open arms.
    Bless all of those lovely folk who worked behind the scenes to bring us what we got.

    They should've included this gag reel on the TMS S1 DVD box set!

    Cool! Second video is so sad yet happy. Seeing the Muppets close up shop is pretty depressing.:sympathy:

    Very interesting footage; the opening of Episode 25 had also turned up on ATV's 1976 Christmas tape and I had always assumed that that was where the footage originated from. As for the footage not turning up on DVD, Disney may not have been aware of its existence.

    Man, I love this. I would love for someone to compile all this footage we've gathered over the years into a new documentary.

    Why that was not included on Season One of the Muppet Show I don't know!

    Two possible reasons:

    1. Disney didn't know of its existence.

    2. It was considered too smutty to be released on DVD.
