It's Time to Raise the Curtain on the Most Sensational, Inspirational, Celebrational, Muppetational DVD of 2007!

The Muppet Show The Complete Second Season Special Edition DVD

Rarely-Seen "Muppets Valentine Special" and Guest Stars Steve Martin and Elton John Will Make Fans Gonzo August 7th

BURBANK, Calif., May 4, 2007 - Muppet news flash!-One year after Walt Disney Home Entertainment raised the curtain on The Muppet Show: Season 1 DVD, The Muppet Show: Season 2 - Special Edition will debut on DVD for the first time on August 7, 2007. The 4-disc set features all 24 digitally remastered and restored episodes from season 2.

Rediscover the clever writing and irreverent comedy of The Muppet Show with the DVD's famous and outrageousskits, songs and silliness, and catch your favorite, legendary guest stars: Bob Hope, Elton John, Peter Sellers (ThePink Panther), George Burns (Oh God), Julie Andrews (The Princess Diaries, The Sound of Music) and Steve Martin (Cheaper By the Dozen, Shop Girl).

The Muppet Show: The Complete Second Season - Special Edition includes collectible, flocked "Muppetational" Piggy packaging as well as hours of bonus features, outtakes and exclusive interviews. Having aired only twice in the last 34 years, the extremely rare and collectible "The Muppets Valentine Special" has never been released on DVD or VHS.. "The Muppets on the Muppets" gives fans the real scoop in personal and revealing interviews, Weezer takes on Miss Piggy in their video "Keep Fishin'" and even the brand new menus will keep you laughing!

Muppets creator, the late Jim Henson, lends his incredible voice talents to Kermit and the Swedish Chef. Frank Oz speaks for Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear, with veteran puppet designer Dave Goelz (Fraggle Rock) as the larynx behind the Great Gonzo. The Muppet Show garnered eight Emmy® Awards during its 1976 to 1981 primetime run on ABC-TV and produced a series of Muppet films including The Muppet Movie and The Muppets Take Manhattan. Henson's creative mind was also responsible for two non-Muppet Show related movies, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.

Bonus Features:

  • The Muppets Valentines Special - Starring a young Mia Farrow, Kermit, and some Muppets you might not recognize, this extremely collectible special has aired only twice since 1974, and never before been released on DVD.
  • Weezer and the Muppets - The music video for "Keep Fishin'" featuring Weezer backstage at The Muppet Show.
  • The Muppets on the Muppets - Personal and revealing interviews from Kermit, Gonzo, Rizzo, and others that will make you laugh, and may even make you cry.
Henson's enormously successful career began in the 1950s with "Sam and Friends," a late night TV show broadcast in the Washington, D.C. area. Before unexpectedly passing away in 1990, Henson created characters for a variety of TV programs-from "Sesame Street" to "Saturday Night Live"-and films such as Yoda from The Empire Strikes Back.
