are any of the segments with the Mumenschanz dance troupe included? i cant seem to find them anywhere... i suppose they may have stopped performing by the time information was redily available online... they aired once on the muppet show in season 1, but i distinctly remember seeing them on sesame street often... where are mumenschanz?
If you're looking for the Mumenschanz dance troupe, check out Volume 1 of the Muppet Show. Those DVDs have that dance troupe in one of the episodes. They're fascinating, though they freaked out my 2-year-old a little bit.
I don't know if they were on Sesame Street, but there is still plenty of Mummenschanz (with two m's in the middle) information on the net. They're still touring, and saw them only a couple of years ago with a friend. :)
Mumenshanz was actually on 321-Contact a lot more than they were on Sesame Street. That should be the next show released on DVD! Anyone else remember the Bloodhound Gang? I love these Sesame Street DVDs...I hope one day when I have kids, they wil love them too!
I remember seeing Mummenschanz 4 or 5 times in Manhattan when I was living there in the mid to late 70's. Absolutely incredible, in not only their costumery (I know, not a real word) and physical dexterity, but also the amazing minds behind the ideas that made these 'creatures' come to life on the stage!
I would give anything to find DVDs of their older performances...
