    Because there's too much trouble? Because some of the stuff isn't really educational for pre-schoolers anymore

    Because there are 4000+ episodes! That's a lot of work to do. But there are other DVDs containing sketches, it just takes a WHILE

    In fact, that's the reason they have "Best Of" and the "Old School" DVDs: They have them because they cannot compile every episode made of the show.

    This is not just because some characters have passed on (Mr. Hooper), because others "moved away" (David), or because still others simply retired or faded away with the passage of time (most retired Muppet characters [most of whom whose puppet forms were taken apart and re-used for newer characters, such as the old orange Oscar being remade into a new grouch after Oscar himself permenantly changed his fur to a green color or bits of Bruno the Trashman being reused for Anything Muppet background characters]), but also because many a classic skit has now been permenantly altered (ex: one doesn't see the original Put Down the Duckie or Monster in the Mirror segments anymore, because the master copies were the ones within which the celebrity segments were added for the 90's versions of those beloved songs, whilst most Jim Henson character scenes have now permenantly been dubbed over by Steve Whitmire's voice [unless it's a Kermit skit, as they remain untouched, out of respect for Kermit as Jim's first creation & as the spokescharacter for most Muppet appearances]).
