    Wow, we haven’t gotten an uncut version for awhile. Maybe the movie will make more sense. Or not.

    Looking forward to this set. I love them all these episodes.

    I can’t believe they’re including all of the ultra-violence and graphic nudity in the uncut Pumaman. Oh, well. Cool group of extras.

    Too awesome – that’s funny too, as just a couple days ago I actually asked “Shout!” on Facebook if they had any plans to release the unMSTied version of Pumaman (since it was such a long and difficult search for the rights holders) and those sly boots responded with “not at this time.” I laughed out loud when I read this – I’m so happy!

    Holy crap, an interview with Pumaman himself? I wonder what that’s gonna be like:

    INTERVIEWER: So do you remember anything about making Pumaman?
    ALTON: Puma what? But I can tell you about my fantastic career in law…
    (blathers for five hours about the incredible attorney work he’s done)

    Is this for real?

    I have to assume it was a joke. A brilliant use of sarcasm, I might add.

    Go read the Agony Booth recap. They mention nothing of the sort.

    Fantastic. Just fantastic.

    I am looking forward to the Steve Vance feature. I have enjoyed his MST3K posters, but I don’t know anything about his work outside of these sets.

    And, of course, Joel!

    Awesome stuff, and it was also fun to read the comments from November about the set. Several of the people guessed/wished for some of the extras that will be included (Puma Man uncut and an interview with Mr. Alton).

    If one orders Vol. 29 through SHOUT!Factory will it ship two weeks before the street date as happened with the 25th Anniversary Tin?

    I loved that! My tin actually arrived 18 days before the street date. That was so cool!

    I’ve checked the SHOUT! site and no word as of yet.

    Maybe we’ll finally get an answer as to if it was an intentional parody or not.

    Who said they tracked down the rights to Puma Man ? Maybe the just said F*** it and decided to go for it, and tracked the uncut version of Puma Man to add to this set. Grin

    Mamie Van Doren’s interview should be cool too, she gave the title away before the announcement on her Facebook page too.

    Did anyone think the first season would wind up being the FIRST to be completed (in expectation of the Black Scorpion coming up Id guess)
    There was a time when hardly any of Season one would have ever come out, but Shout did it ! Smile

    Depressing Aunt says:

    When I watch the interviews they do for Shout, it seems as if all the actors are barely aware of the fact that their movies were featured on MST3K. I’m sure there are many sensible reasons for that, but just once I’d like someone to say, “Hey, I watched that, and this is what I think of it.” In an alternate universe, someone might be saying, “Hey–that’s my favorite show, I’m so glad they did our movie! I don’t even mind that they said my acting was terrible!” Smile

    Those are extras to die for. Why did they stop before with original un-riffed versions?

    Nice to see a little something on Steve Vance – his posters are fantastic.

    And, another miracle from Shout! – The uncut version of Pumaman. I’ve seen this on bootleg video for years, but never anything of real quality. Just got one with Korean subtitles. At least, I think it’s Korean. Smile

    And “The Movie that Couldn’t Die.” That should be fun. Sadly, star Caroline Kearney [Jessica] is no longer with us (RIP), but hopefully there are some archive interviews with her and Robin Hughes [Gideon’s Drool, er, Gideon Drew] (both Twilight Zone veterans, we might add).

    Now I’m really look forward to this set. I think you may need to repost the link, though – it seems to have disappeared from the last entry for this set.

    I’m sure that like myself, many Msties have obtained uncut Mst’ed movies. I’m not talking about the Millcreek box-o-movies (many of which exclude the same scenes MST3K excluded just because they can), I’m talking about finding the original! I recall that Space Mutiny and Werewolf were actually FUN to watch sans riffing, but Puma Man was really really really hard.

    Perhaps it’s because there weren’t any boobs. Oops!

    I’ve just added the First Spaceship on Venus DVD to my potential XXIX order. Plus, my library has the East German version – the English version took a bandsaw to it. Looks really nice in scope dimensions, though.

    Miguel Ángel Fuentes is the real star of The Pumaman. And a much more renowned actor. He was on an episode of The A-Team

    Another batch of cool extras, hopefully all from Daniel Griffith at Ballyhoo. Can’t wait to see “The Movie that couldn’t die”. Episode 805 has always been my favorite. Kudos to Ballyhoo on the awesome “Return to Eden Prairie” series. Great work as always D.G.

    Amazing how young all of them were when they started this.

    Keep em’ coming!

    Thank you, huggybear (never thought I would say such a thing)! Yes, I produced/directed a number of the features on this set, including the introductions, Riffing Myself, The Pumaman materials, The Thing That Couldn’t Die materials, and a featurette not mentioned in this press release. It will also be included on the Puma-disc. It’s titled… “MUCH ADO ABOUT NANITES”. Enjoy!

    Also… the interview with Alton goes covers just about everything you would want to know about the making of PUMAMAN, excerpt for the correct way to pronounce it. Smile

    @31 Daniel, hopefully all those extras on the Puma Man disc don’t affect the bitrate and video quality of the episode. Pumaman uncut is 99 minutes long and the episode is 92 minutes in length.

    @ Projected Paul, Hopefully its a double sided disk, or a 2 disk set
    Do the interviews clear anything up about whether or not it was intended to be a parody as Paul Chaplin suspected? Between the goofy flying scenes, the fact that Pumaman does almost nothing and Vadinho does almost everything cool half makes me suspect he’s right.

    I wish they’d just include the missing scenes instead of the entire uncut episode. In fact, I wish they’d include them for every episode release.

    Halfway through the interview with Walter Alton, Vadinho walks in and tosses him out the window.
