Baby Van Gogh (lost blue/yellow puppet show of Baby Einstein video series; 2000)
This article has been tagged as Needing work due to its slight plagiarism.
Baby Einstein: Baby Van Gogh is the 5th video to be released in the Baby Einstein Video Series. It includes music by Satie, Bizet, Rossini, Mussorgsky, Strauss, Ravel, Offenbach, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. It's counterpart CD is Art Time Classics.
It teaches your child about art in six vignettes, yellow, green, orange, purple, red and blue. It was released on August 15th, 2000. It was also sold in a "special" pack including the VHS and the book.
In the VHS (inc. DVD), at the end of the credits, after the pictures at an exhibition sequence and video tutorial, during the Toy Chest, there is a screenshot of a puppet show featuring Vincent Van Goat that wasn't featured in the film, however there's already one with Misty the Mouse that looks exactly like the one with Vincent in it. Most people claim it was used as a promotional picture for when the video was going to release, or just a stock photo only used for the Toy Chest.
It is weather or not known if that puppet show was originally going to be used to promote the color "Blue" or if it was going to promote the color "Yellow" maybe after the Duck puppet left, since there's no puppet show used to promote that color like there is for all the other colors in the film. It is also possible that it might've been shown on the VHS shown in the video tutorial. But then again, since it's lost/unused content, the world may never know (except Julie Aigner-Clark & the original BE Company).
Back in 2016, A user by the name of BE2003 had emailed Julie Aigner-Clark about the puppet show, but somehow didn't know what he was talking about, meaning she either didn't know about this, or did but wasn't there for when the filming took place.
No footage of the puppet show has surfaced (yet) after all these years, not even part of the "Classic" Baby Einstein DVD sets from 2020 as a bonus feature as well.
The original website's Toy Chest as well as in the video, only features the screenshot of the missing puppet show.
