Which is why I suggest to you to boycott this release and ask The Jim Henson Company/Sony to do a replacement program featuring the special in original full screen and with the original 60fps video framerate.
As a self proclaimed Muppetologist, this is the best version of the film ever released. How the Henson company got rights to use Kermit in the film is beyond me but they did it. This is the original HBO version that Muppet fans have been waiting for for years.

-The cut dialogue
-Cut song lyrics
-Complete HBO version
What I am not sure about is the fact that is is wide screen. I am not sure if they cropped the picture but it looks pretty good. For the Muppet completest (like me) you should get all the version but this is the best version so far.
Paid extra for the HD version and it’s not the original 4:3 aspect ratio. They zoomed it in and cropped off the top and bottom so that it would fit 16:9 and it’s awful. So disappointing! Why do they do this? If someone really hates black bars then they can use the zoom function on their TV, but as it is everyone looses out. I wish I could return it and just find the DVD, which hopefully isn’t butchered like this one is.
