    Slater: Hey get off the stage!
    Waldorf: Yeah, you're worse than the bear!
    Slater: And that's saying something...
    Waldorf: Which isn't much!

    Like I said, This is exciting, but when will they show it?

    Whenever they feel like it and they aren't revealing much in terms of details, either.

    I believe it was Brian Henson who remarked about Disney having some mysterious method behind their madness when releasing the Muppet Show DVDs, I think that is probably the case here too. It's about priority and timing. Finding the best time and place for the exposure. Maybe they didn't test well? Maybe they will coincide with the new Disney television season? When does that start anyway? And has that been touched by the strike as well?

    I've got a feeling they arent actually for the Disney channel and the original article was wrong, going by what Goelz was saying (unless there are multiple projects) these are for the Disney XD Channel.

    And what, praytell, is the Disney XD Channel?

    Here's the press release for Disney XD.


    Available only on Disney.com, Disney XD is a customizable, personalized entertainment and social networking experience that now allows fans to rock out online.

    Well, at least the Muppets are getting exposure, even if it is online.

    Oh, geez. So you mean I'm actually going to have to figure out how to do all that "interfacing" stuff if I want to see these? Yeesh!

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    *shrugs* Oh well. Maybe it a show of things to come.

    yay more muppets online hidden from the world..
  16. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    I meant that, maybe this online exposure would eventually give the Muppets some future TV exposure.

    Bear in mind that Disney XD will probably eventually launch as an on demand cable channel as well as on the web.

    The problem is that this probably all to prepare for the full-on conversion to digital media.

    High School Musical...blah blah blah blah... Hannah montana... Blah Blah Blah blah...High School Musical...blah blah blah blah... Hannah montana... Blah Blah Blah blah...High School Musical...blah blah blah blah... Hannah montana... Blah Blah Blah blah... Lather rinse repeat.

    YEah, things look really good for people outside of the 9-16 year old girl demographic. :grouchy:

    Well, remember...children were what even Jim Henson's work was usually aimed at, although his work--like many others'--did reach other demographics as well.
