    Hey Disneys Muppets,

    Some people Don't like the idea. They like Jim Henson's Muppets, Not Disney's Muppets. Muppet fans, They like Muppets, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock to be the same company. Because they were created by Jim Henson.

    I think Disney likes using Muppets, Disney's Muppets, or Disney Presents Jim Henson's Muppets. It might be one of those we don't know.

    He doesn't. The Kermit's head is in different directions.

    As far as the topic goes, I think Disney buying them has many advantages, but I also wish the three main brands (Muppets, FR, and SS) were all under the same roof. One of the things about the Disney acquisition is that I wish they had purchased the Fraggle characters as well. The Fraggles are "Muppets" in every since of the word. (It was not feasible to purchase the SS characters this times because they were already owned by SW.)Unfortunately the three brands are now under three different roofs. All things considered, I think the "Muppets" have a lot of potential. But what Disney exactly plans to do with them is remained to be seen.

    No matter what happens they will always be Jim Hensons creations and Jim Hensons muppets no matter who owns them. Disney would have never created something as good as the muppets on there own so they shouldnt be called disneys muppets, maybe jim hensons muppets owned by disney, or something like that.

    Everything Disney ownes they say like Disney's Something. When they bought Doug they named it Disney's Doug. The name of the show name became Disney's Doug. So theres a 50% chance we might or might not see Disney's Muppets.

    Take a look see what Disney's Muppets would look like http://www.digitalduckpond.co.uk/images/muppets.jpg.

    Who knows you might like it.

    Well It looks ok but I dont like the fact that it doesnt mention Jim Henson, he needs to be mentioned somewhere there.

    Wrong-O, look at Power Rangers... there NOT called Disneys Power Rangers, nor is the old Marvel Cartoons (ie: Spider man, X-men etc.) there NOT called Disneys eather, even tho there under Disneys owner ship. The ONLY reson it was even called Disneys Doug, so it was NOT to be confused with Nick's Doug cartoons :smirk:

    You must be smoking some serious crack. I think you may be the only one out of thousands on here.

    For me, and for *MOST** of us on here...the Muppets, Sesame Street, and Fraggle Rock WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER be part of the Jim Henson Company...no corrupt German media company or the imperialist mouse can change that in our hearts.

    That 'Disneys Muppets' logo made me sick to my stomach...may us pray this never happens.

    I think it was the fact they bought the Muppets from JHC that really ignited our angst.

    Let me ask you, what if a company bough Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck from Disney? oMG wOUlDNT tAT bE TEH bESTeST!1111

    Yeah, I am pretty passionate about keeping the Muppet legacy together...but I am also wanting the Muppets to be around forever, and rise up like they haven't in some time.

    Right on brother. Actually i was in the Disney Store today to look at the new Muppet stuff that's invaded and it's all still marked "The Jim Henson Company" but it was all prominently displayed at the front of store.

    Anyway we don't know yet but i think the fact that they created a holding company (Muppets Holding Company LLC) is a good indication that we probably won't be seeing Disney's Muppets, at least for quite some time and hopefully never.
