Muppet show argentina vhs 1

Ledafilms home video release of El show de los Muppets

El show de los Muppets is the Latin American dub of The Muppet Show in the Spanish language.

The series was dubbed during the show's original run (1976-1981) in Mexico at dubbing studio CINSA (where the early Plaza Sésamo seasons were dubbed). A new dub was produced in Argentina at the studio Palmera Record from 1999-2001.

A handful of episodes were released on home video in Argentina by Ledafilms in the 1980s, using the original Mexican dub. The two compilation videos under the Son Los Muppets redubbed the footage, rather than using the original dub.

Notes

  • In his introduction to episode 102, Kermit refers to "Beto" and "Enrique" as coming from Plaza Sésamo.
  • Although a full season has never received a standalone commercialized DVD release in the primary Spanish-speaking countries, a Latin American Spanish audio track was included on the Brazilian release of the Season One DVD. A majority of episodes contain the original Mexican dub by CINSA, while episodes 104, 105, 107, 113, 114, and 116 use the Argentinian re-dub. (Episodes 114 and 116 use the original dub for the intro sequence only.)
  • The original Latin American Spanish versions of episodes 102, 108, and 111 were also included on the Italian release of the first season, while the rest of the episodes were presented with the Castilian Spanish dubbing (which similarly was not released on DVD in Spain).
