I think some direct to DVD movies are good like the Alladin stuff. Other than Homer Simpsons taking over for Robin in the second one the Alladin trilogy is pretty good, though nothing beats the first in the series. While I owuld not like to see a direct to DVD sequel I would like to see direct to DVD movies if possible. That is what is good about the muppets though. They don't need to have direct to DVD sequels. If you want Bambi in a new movie it has to be Bambi 2. If you want Dumbo in a new movie it has to be Dumbo 2, but the muppets can be in another movie that is all on it's own and new. What ever is happening with the MHC it seems that the muppet push is starting to slow down big time. A lot of stuff has been announced and if it's not in production by now it's just not happening.
