Reel Classics Extra is a weekly sports-themed movie block on ESPN Classic. Starting on August 28, 2005 (and continuing for 19 weeks), Statler and Waldorf introduced the weekly film with antics from the balcony. The brief introductory clips were filmed as part of production for Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony - using the same puppets, sets, and crew. Aside from introducing the films, the clips heavily promoted the webshow with on-screen pop-up advertisements saying "for more Statler & Waldorf go to Movies.com". An archive of these introductions was added to the From the Balcony website afterwards in 2006, but were removed after all From the Balcony content was removed from the website.
