BURBANK, Calif., March 21, 2008 – It’s time to welcome back Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang when all 24 irreverent and witty episodes of The Muppet Show: The Complete Third Season
come to DVD on May 20, 2008 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. Available on DVD for the first time, the complete third season of the Emmy® Award winning comedy series comes in a special four-disc set with new behind the scenes bonus features and rare original skits every fan must own!

Season Three of this longtime audience favorite added the distinguished Peabody Award to The Muppet Show’s impressive list of awards, which includes four Primetime Emmys. Highlights of Season Three include an unforgettable duet between Gilda Radner (Saturday Night Live) and a giant carrot, as well as guest appearances by Sylvester Stallone, Liberace, Raquel Welch, Alice Cooper and Cheryl Ladd.

Created by legendary puppeteer Jim Henson and featuring the inimitable voice talents of Frank Oz, The Muppet Show introduces audiences to the ultimate puppet femme fatale, Miss Piggy, and also stars Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Animal and a host of other iconic characters. The show’s zany skits, hilarious gags, and upbeat musical numbers make it a true family favorite, slyly clever enough for the discerning adult and silly enough for the child in everyone. Digitally restored and fully re-mastered, The Muppet Show: The Complete Third Season features more of the magical moments that made Henson’s plush puppets a worldwide phenomenon, plus...

BONUS FEATURES:

The Muppet Show: The Complete Third Season contains never-before-seen bonus content that makes it a must-own for every fan, including:
• A Company of Players – An all-new documentary that reveals the behind-the-scenes Puppeteers and how they make the Muppets come to life.
• The Muppets on Puppets - An original documentary featuring Jim Henson and the original Muppet puppeteers
• A Frog Is Born – Behind every celebrity’s glittering façade is a tale of hard luck and harder work. This is Kermit’s.

Already a well known television personality from his successful stint on “Sesame Street,” Kermit the Frog launches an outrageous vaudeville-style variety show starring his Muppet friends and featuring a weekly celebrity guest star. Riding herd on the spirited Muppet troupe keeps Kermit on his toes as the camera goes backstage to document the rivalries and romances of his all star cast.

The Muppet Show: The Complete Third Season is priced at $39.99 SRP in the US and $59.99 SRP in Canada.
