    Not only did I never think that Disney would buy the Muppets.......I surely didn't think that Pixar would sell out to Disney either....I was totally surprised on both accounts.

    Honestly, I don't see all that much difference either way.

    It would have been nice if Michael Eisner had just brought the Muppets (with some of his investor pals) for himself. Then the Muppets would have thrived.

    My jury's still out on the whole thing. Good question though, Kimp!

    All I got to say is Eiger Schmeiger...Steve Jobs is now the number one shareholder in Disney, one of the top most powerful media companies in the world. I wonder what sort of effect this would have on the Muppets? Pixar is ACTUALLY the kind of company that should be running The Muppets, not Disney.

    Oh, dear! CGI MUPPETS?!

    No way. I liked the stuff they did in the Super Bowl commercials, though!
