The Same?

I mentioned this earlier, and we might not come to a conclusion, but should this be listed under The Muppets Present? I mentioned previously that The Muppets Present was announced in a big press release of upcoming Muppet projects in 2001, and then in Spring 2002 it was announced that FOX would be airing a new Muppet show, with no mention of it being this. The pilot script was recently leaked online, where it was simply titled "Untitled Muppet Show", which either signals that this was a different show or they changed their minds about "The Muppets Present" title without knowing what to call it. Was the show referred to as "The Muppets Present" in the pitch reel? --Minor muppetz (talk) 16:09, October 15, 2013 (UTC)

Copy of the Pitch?

Anyone have a copy of this pitch tape? Hensonfan 00:31, February 7, 2011 (UTC)Hensonfan

Someone does; who else could have gotten screenshots? Edward Rankin 01:38, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
That brief bit was on YouTube very briefly. That's all. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 07:02, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Merge

Would it make sense to merge The New Muppet Show Pitch Reel and this article? They both cover the development and pitch for the same unproduced series and I think it would be more interesting as one big article. -- Brad D. (talk) 05:58, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, absolutely. -- Danny (talk) 06:37, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
I recall seeing The Muppets Present mentioned in a press release in spring 2001, long before the Fox series was announced. Hardly anything beyond title is known about what this series would have been, but we don't know that these are the same series. And I think that the title suggests that it could have been an anthology series of sorts. --Minor muppetz 01:08, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
The source currently on the page is a ToughPigs reprint of an article that doesn't mention the title... Does anyone have that 2001 press release mentioned on the page? -- Danny (talk) 01:17, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
I found the ad and posted it here on the talk page. --Minor muppetz 01:09, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
