Just a heads up, I just released Lighthouse Island on MySpleen.

Lightouse Island is a half-hour telefilm produced by Jim Henson.

The show itself, was filmed as a pilot for a series that was to center around Lighthouse Island, its strange inhabitants and the people that would visit. Chris Makepeace was intended to only be a guest for the first episode.

When the show was not picked up, it aired the following year as the second half of The Jim Henson Hour’s second episode on April 21, 1989.

It is a VHSRip dubbed from a Betamax tape.  The Betamax tape was a cast member’s personal copy.  (I am not equipped to make a BetaRip, sorry.)

(Jim Henson’s introduction (the first few seconds) were partially cut off on this copy and had to be added from another source.)

I cleaned it a bit, IVTC’d the progressive portion, and ripped the closed captioning to add as English subtitles.

Quality is fair, but better than existing rips on the net.
Cover art in BMP and Nero format.
(I seriously considered asking my friend to do an audio commentary track, but chickened out.)

Bumping my own old 1-post thread:
This seems to have dried up from the net. PM me if interested.
