Get your own Big Mouth BassX0 for the low price of $19.95 (plusshippingandhandling)

@  repowers : (13 June 2021 - 12:45 PM)

Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

Just don't drop him.

@  Kaon : (12 June 2021 - 08:03 PM)

man this chat is nothing but Bass X)

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

Yes Cybershark, and now no force in the universe can stop us.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

If I understand correctly the original Muppet Babies is a mess rights wise because of all the Movie, TV and song clips used. Apparently none of them were signed for later release so all those rights would have to be arranged and paid for now for any sort of release which is why there's never been one.


-ZacWilliam, I mean that's probably doable for Disney, sure but it's time and effort intensive and a money outlay and they don't have much incentive to care given all the stuff they have free and easy access to.

 

It's certainly a thing Disney could afford to do, but they haven't bothered clearing the rights for the final seasons of TMS, so poor lost Muppet Babies never had a chance.

I'm sure they won't be. It's really a shame. Fox did such a great job with Star Trek TNG, but totally screwed up The Simpsons and Buffy.

This is pretty much what is going on with Muppet Babies.  The show has been blocked from even getting a DVD release because of it.  The only home media for the show are soem old VHS tapes that got released before the rights issues really came into play.

There were a couple of DVD releases packed in with some Muppet Babies plush toys released back in the 2000s, though, but which only had about two episodes per disc.

 

Funny you should mention those VHS tape releases. I think I used to have all seven of them. Three were two-episode tapes, one had just the Valentine's Day episode (with one scene edited to remove a moment when Skeeter suddenly has a beard put on her face), and the other three released as part of the "Yes I Can" series also having two episodes each along with a new live-action theme song and wraparound segments starring Kermit and Robin.

Oh. Yeah, right, Star Trek isn't Fox, don't know what I was thinking. Guess Fox just sucks at HD upgrades overall.

I'm 100% certain they restored the series in OAR and then chopped off the sides for their faux-widescreen bulljive.

 

It wouldn't make any sense to cut first and then restore.

One assumes they must... but do they WANT it? If Lucas himself wanted to excise it from existence, there's not a lot of reason to assume Disney's going to just throw the show on their streaming service just because they CAN.

Lucas wanted it shelved for quality purposes and not his weird "dewbacks walking through every shot is how I always imagined it" after the fact CGI fest.

 

I wouldn't look forward to it every showing up again in an official capacity.

I very much doubt the Diahann Carroll segment would sit well with their target demographic.  Could you imagine the "millions of voices cried out in "problematic", and were suddenly silent".  "The special was released, I feel something terrible has happened"

 

It would probably get released on Hulu

I'm just hoping some old live action movies and obscure Wonderful World of Disney classics get to come back.

 

I need "Condorman" and "The Island on the Top of the World"  Everyone needs to see Mako with the classic "Oomiak fight like Bear! RAWR!" line :D

 

Yes I grew up on a lot of bad live action Disney films. Bring on the Bruce Campbell version of "The Love Bug"!

Maybe DisneyCorp can buy up whatever company has the rights to the 8 episodes that were released as "best of Muppets", and then they can make their own sets finally.

 

Even the current Disney sets are woefully incomplete.

 

Season 1 in particular has quite a few cuts.

 

I'd hope streaming rights wouldn't be as tangled (or expensive) as home media ones.

Considering the full run of Malcolm in the Middle is available to watch on Amazon but has never been released on DVD, I would hope so too. I think legally it's considered the same thing as airing reruns.
