    Disney should hire me to help them gain exposure for the Muppets. I expose myself all the time!

    Well, I mean I expose my work--Muley stuff, y'know? Any opening at all and I throw him out there!

    Hmmm... a throwback to the glory days of the Muppet show type spcials, eh? With the mixed quality of the last 2 TV films (I thought VMX was very good, and Oz... at best it needed a LOT of work), It'll be nice to see a low-key half hour to an hour special. Too bad the Muppets have been ruthlessly split up, though. Could you imagine a new muppet special with Fraggles and Sesame Street monsters, and Bear? That would be pretty great.

    you never know what can happen. If Disney really wanted them together, Disney is one of the few companies that could make it get done.

    I agree, its a shame...but for the survival of the franchises maybe it was good. I mean you really think we'd get a Fraggle film if JHC was handling all the franchises? Im hoping they will get representitives(muppet delegates?) from all the Muppet franchises other thanthe Muppets for Kermit's Roast special. To not would just be history revisionism, plain and simple.

    This is awesome news and it's great that someone at Disney 'gets it' about the Muppets and Christmas and how they are a perfect fit together and a tradition to many families at Christmas time. It's almost like they consulted me before making the announement. I have always viewed the Muppets and Christmas as something special and near and dear to my heart. I also don't mind that it's a low key 'special' rather than a full blown movie. Those are the best Christmas shows to me anyway.

    NOW IF WE COULD ONLY GET THE CHRISTMAS TOY ON REGION 1 DVD. THEN MY WORLD WILL BE COMPLETE. [\capslock]

    Well, I would listen to Secret Squirrel, he usually knows what he's talking about. If he says it may not be made, more than likely no one is getting it.

    OK, maybe we're not getting it...

    I think direct to DVD movies kind of cheapen the original filmwork. You know, I like Michale Eisner and everything, I mean he revitalised the Disney Franchise and every thing with the Little mermaid tho the Lion King.

    But I cant say that I am not happy that he has decided to step down as the head with all the sequel work and everything, and the closing down of their Two-D movie animation studios, and only making CG movies from this moment forward, ane creating a bad relationship with Pixar, with them threatening to leave disney and Disney threatening to make Toy Story 3 by themselves and un purposely ruin it, and then he purchesed the Muppets.

    While he was a good friend with Jim Henson and Really liked the Muppets, I have to say that I somewhat trusted him with the the them and he was off to a good start, there's really no telling what would have eventally became of them, It really could have gome either way with him, but would anyone want to take that risk?

    Then again, you have to ask youeself, who is replacing him and what he going to do with the Muppets.
