So for Christmas I received the 9-disc Star Wars Complete Saga on Blu-Ray. I am watching the third bonus disc right now, which contains an old TV special entitled Classic Creatures - Return of the Jedi, co-hosted by Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams.

I haven't seen it in many years, so I had forgotten how much footage they included of Jim Henson, Dark Crystal, Frank Oz, and the Muppets.

One annoying piece of editing: Billy Dee's narration segues from Oz on set of ESB to the water-ballet scene from GMC, ending with the line "Frank Oz is Miss Piggy"... just as it cuts to the non-puppet Miss Piggy suit worn by a stunt double for her dive into the water.

"Frank Oz is Miss Piggy... except for RIGHT NOW."

Oh, also annoying... The stuffed Pepe doll that I got for my wife is cross-eyed, so he looks like the illegitimate offspring of Pepe and Cookie Monster.
