amc, alaska gregorian, muppet wizard of oz

Vaguely pretentious promo documentary on American Music Club, from circa 1993 (“Mercury” era).
It must have been confusing as hell to live in Alaska on October 7, 1867. (“Thus shortly after Saturday 7th had already started it became Friday 18th. Alaska had two consecutive Fridays, and the days 7th to 17th October were omitted.”)
Why did no one tell me there was a Muppet version of The Wizard of Oz in production? Starring Jeffrey Tambor as the Wizard and Quentin Tarantino as “Himself”? My mind is already blown in anticipation.
