Desperate for complete Muppet Family Christmas for DVD experiment

Hi all!

I'm desperately seeking a copy of the Muppet Family Christmas special that includes all of the scenes that were cut out in the retail version.

What I ultimately want to do is make a DVD R of the full version of the special. For all of the scenes that are on both the unedited version and the DVD I'll take the footage from the higher quality DVD. For the scenes that are only on the VHS copy, I'll use that copy.

In the end I hope to have a finished product that is of higher quality than the VHS tapes floating arround (except for the recovered parts).

Does this sound reasonable to anyone who has played arround with video conversion/dvd recording?

Could anyone make me a copy of the unedited Muppet Family Christmas special so i can try this Frankenstein experiment?

I'd be willing to send money Via Paypall or Money Order to cover the costs of tape, shipping, and effort.

Thanks,
Neil

Perfectly feasible, although this probably isn't the sort of project you want to be discussing on here :smile:

Feel free to drop me an email, though!

Looking for Muppet Family Christmas unedited

I am lucky to still possess the same copy from TV from my childhood, but it is of course VHS and my family in Memphis has it (I'm in Indiana) and we don't have an extra VCR for copying. Sorry. I know how you feel- I have nightmares about how I'd feel if something happened to it.

Comiserate, I guess, unless Kev has 2 VCRs so I can copy it when I go home.

I have a copy - in fact i have two. I have the original recording we taped back in the 80's and a more recent copy we taped (after discovering that the commercial copy had been so extensively edited) now that we have cable and access to YTV (which shows it every year).

I'm also doubly VCR endowed. So I would be willing to make a copy if, as you said, you paid for shipping and the blank tape.

Kamit,
That would be great. Can you drop me a line at my yahoo address so I can get your mailing address? It would be nice if you could copy me the least staticky version or if they both look good the older one. I'm guessing our video systems are the same? (in Europe they use some other kind)
PS- If you are in Montreal or Toronto I could actually drive up to meet you.
