    Re: Raisin,

    Is there more than one MC mailing list? Because the only mailing list email I got today was from Tough Pigs.

    Dude, I did not see this coming.

    I always kind of figured that 100 years from now I would be dead, and yet Disney would still be "close" to buying the Muppets (and then Megalosoft, a division of Microsoft that was created around the year 2040, would be closer and then Disney would be closer)...

    Little did I know that when I put on my favorite Muppet shirt this morning, that there would be such exciting news later on.:excited:

    I got an email from MC, I don't know, I signed up for a list along time ago before I even joined I think.

    I'm so excited I could wet myself (but i'll leave that to Saba Toys in the future)

    Anyway, I as some wasn't really that intrested or had an opinion on who bought the Muppets but as soon as I saw this I knew that is what I wanted.

    There are so many bright sides to this, everything we've been learning about (Fox Show) everything we've been getting (Palisades Figures) are in no danger and can proceed as planned.

    :) :mad: :sympathy: :concern: :o

    Wow, what an unexpected surprise! This is great news, I feel like a new chapter in the lives of the Muppets is about to begin. It's time to get things started!!

    PS - does this mean an Electric Mayhem reunion tour is in the works??

    OH MY....WOW!

    this is the best thing that could happen...I don't think we should ask questions quite yet, though...this isn't totally finalized (although so close I can taste it...no that was my sonic birthday cake shake...oh well...they are both very sweet!)

    God yes! I log on for the first time today and am greeted with this awesome piece of muppety goodness in my e-mail!
    I love Brian Henson, and I think the company will only continue to improve from now on.

    Now if only the Disney family could re-gain control of the Walt Disney company...

    yeah, right.....

    yes Eisner is not having a good day today, I bet (and I wish I saw his face when he found out HAHAHAHAHA) he deserved it!

    I'm not on the mail list...but I saw this and became dilerious with glee

    Eisner is probably exhibiting the same temper today as he did when DCA opened. On opening day, when the park underperformed (By about 9,000 visitors LOL ), he was reportedly in a very hot-tempered mood; so much so, in fact, that CM's were instructed not to go up to his suite in the new hotel. I have read that he is very stubborn when he doesn't get what he wants.

    Wanting Henson for over a decade, and than falling short. This must be killing him :D

    i never go to this part of the forum because it always talks about who might buy the muppets. but i'm glad i came here today. never saw this coming. man i bet those henson kids are happy now and celebrating. good for them.

    and to quote the good dr. teeth: can you picture that?.....

    Disney...Ii ain't likke he didn't have plenty of chances. If Eisner had been more of a salesman and less of a cartoon vulture, he could have snatched them up so easily. The Muppets are certainly worth at least twice 80M, especially after the Disney machine got their four-fingered hands on them.

    But...you never know. This could just be another chapter. Maybe there still will be a merger. And now, with total Henson ownership, Henson can make whatever demands they would like in any such businesss transaction. Everyone thinks this is over. I'm not so sure.

    i for one never said this would be over; however i think everyone knows the henson family has a lot of work to do in the coming months..but kudos to them
