Disney's handling of The Muppets...

    The Muppets have been under Disney's care for 11-12 years now. How do you think the House of Mouse has been handling them? Do you agree with Frank Oz that they are too cute? Do you think they have improved over the years

    I just watched the Frank Oz interview, that was really good!

    Yes, I do agree with him about the Muppets being "too cute".
    Disney took them and toned them down (and dumbed them down) too much. Don't care much for the last couple Muppet movies.
    They've been reduced to bathroom humor like much of the other cheesy Disney kids shows out there now.

    I think The Muppets should be edgy, as JH intended.
    I'd prefer the more adult humor and PG language over the childish unfunny stuff they've done in the past few years.

    At this moment, they are much better and closer to the 70s/80s stuff.
    Hope they stay more geared for adults and we don't get a primetime Sesame Street.
