I absolutely love this show! I still have some episodes on VHS. I would love for this to be available for my children one day. I wish TVO would do something to rebroadcast and/or put this wonderful show on DVD. I mean, every other show I can think of is out there in some fashion at least in part. TS though seems to be in "oblivion". It is definitely just as good as anything Jim Henson has done. There is no reason not to put it out for people today.
