5.  Why was the 50th Anniversary Edition released BEFORE the 20th and 25th Anniversary Editions?
There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for the enumeration of the Anniversary Editions.
The 50th Anniversary Edition was released fifty years after Kermit's debut on "Sam and Friends"; the 20th and 25th Editions were released twenty and twenty-five years after the first release of this film.
The 20th and 25th Anniversary Editions had so much more, spectacular work done on them and their Bonus Features, that they weren't ready until after the 50th Anniversary Edition had already been released.
This is a trick question; the 50th Anniversary Edition was released AFTER the 20th and 25th Editions, of course.

6.  When did Kermit the Frog debut on "Sam and Friends"?
1955
1966
1977
This is a trick question; Kermit never appeared on "Sam and Friends."

7.  What is different about the menus on the 20th Anniversary Edition, in comparison to the menus on the earlier editions?
If the menus are accessed while the film is playing, the film keeps playing, while the menu appears as a vertical band on the left side of the screen.
Instead of Kermit, Ebenezer Scrooge appears to nag viewers to make a menu selection, if they take too long.
Instead of Kermit, Statler and Waldorf appear to heckle viewers for not making a menu selection, if they take too long.
This is a trick question; the menus on all of the editions are the same.

8.  What is unusual about the 25th Anniversary Edition?
It was only released to download - not on disc.
It includes an audio commentary track with Michael Caine.
It is "the Director's cut," containing previously unreleased footage.
This is a trick question; it's a copy of the 20th Anniversary Edition, which has merely been re-labeled.

9.  Which of the following Bonus Features is available on the 20th Anniversary Edition, but not on prior editions?
an audio commentary track with the Director, Brian Henson
an audio commentary track with Kermit, Gonzo, and Rizzo
an audio commentary track with Michael Caine
an audio commentary track with Charles Dickens

10.  Which of the following Bonus Features is available on the 20th Anniversary Edition, but not on prior editions?
"Pepe Profiles Present - Gonzo:  Portait of the Artist as a Young Weirdo"
"Christmas Around the World"
"Outtakes and Bloopers:  On the Set Gag Reel"
"Frogs, Pigs, and Humbug:  Unwrapping a New Christmas Classic"
