    Henson Is Going To The Dogs, Again
    After yesterday's announcement that Jim Henson Pictures would team up with Disney for the singing-dog picture
    Let It Rain, MGM announced today that it would co-produce Good Boy! with the muppet studio. The family comedy
    is a hybrid of live-action performers and CGI-enhanced canines, similar to the manner in which Babe
    anthropomorphized animals. It follows the adventures of an alien dog coming to Earth from Sirius, the Dog Star,
    to investigate interstellar reports that his fellow canines have abandoned their original plan to take over the
    planet. While investigating, he becomes the pet and friend of a human boy. MGM and Henson officials are hoping
    the $20 million pic can become a franchise. Shooting is scheduled to begin in Vancouver in late August

    Aiy aiy aiy aiy aiy... That's all I have to say on this topic. Why has Disney decided to focus on the genre of talking dogs from space. I say there are only so many talking dogs from space movies to be made, and dragging Henson into there talking-space dog industry just feels like Disney's pulling Henson into quicksand.

    That's because they've drained the "cats from space" idea already

    Horrifyingly enough folks, the man's not kidding The Cat From Outer Space, is the name of the flick, I remember seeing it when I was around 6, even then I had the taste to turn off the TV.

    Yeah!!!!! Someone else remember's it. It had Dean Jones. There was talk they were going to remake it too, but I don't believe they did. They did, however, remake "That darn cat" Bleh

    Keep in mind, this is a not a co-production with Disney, but with MGM, which only GUARANTEES its failure. Their only recent non-"James Bond" hit was "Legally Blonde."
