    Universal opening logo on modern Dark Crystal releases?

    Lately I've been thinking about how the 1993 Jim Henson Video releases of TMM and GMC had the Jim Henson Productions logo at the beginning and how the 1999 releases had the Jim Henson Pictures logo (which remains on modern releases), and I thought about how the 1994 release of The Dark Crystal...

    Muppet Sing-Alongs thread

    I don't think there's been a thread for the Muppet Sing-Alongs video series, but I just recently saw the last of the ones I previously hadn't and thought I'd start a thread. Here are my thoughts on the videos: Billy Bunny's Animal Songs It's a weird choice for the first Muppet sing-along...

    What Makes Music versus Happiest Street in the World

    The album Sesame Disco has two great songs - What Makes Music and The Happiest Street in the World (actually, all of the albums songs/tracks are great, but these are the two I am focusing on now). Which of the two is better? What Makes Music is the opening track, and it is a great opening...

    Theoretical Question: Should a new figure line focus on only variants?

    So it seems like we're close to the end of the figures from Diamond Select Toys, and I've been thinking today: Next time (if there is a next time) a toy company decides to do a Muppet toy line, should it focus exclusively on variants (or have variants before standard versions)? Palisades...
