    That's a half-good and half-bad idea. Many Muppets work beautifully as walk-arounds, particularly your average-sized humanoids and pigs. However, some Muppets don't work too well as walkarounds, like Beaker (spindly frame), Kermit (ditto), Bunsen (his head's too round) and Janice (too thin). The ultimate walkaround would surely be Sam, as his rather large stature, human-sized feet and big arms would both make it easy to make the character as a walkaround and easy for a performer to do. So, I'd love to see him walking around at MGM sometime soon.

    You know who else would work real well as walkarounds? Statler and Waldorf!

    Well, Kermit is a walk around character. I've took many photos with him and Piggy. They were dressed differently two times, the three times I've seen them. Although, the Janice one I agree on. But Bunsen and Beaker I still see them doing for I've went to Globe Trotter games and the mascot, "Globbie" has a larger head and much rounder head than Bunsen's. And Beaker's wouldn't be too hard to get into. Have the mouth slightly pulled open like Kermit's is. The head would just fit right around the head of the performer. It would be like Sam's head.

    They've had plans for the "Great Muppet Movie Ride" for a while now, which had parodies of several movies including Frankenstein, Peter Pan as well as a Pigs In Space movie sequence.

    That or have Muppets be part of the inevitable next park for WDW (assuming they build another one) DisneySea. Then they could possibly implement the Muppet Immigration attraction from the Disney America park plans into the American Waterfront area.

    Not a bad idea...Just as long as we get more Muppets at Disney Theme Parks...I'm happy...that's *anyone's* chance to get to meet a live Muppet! Well, you could go to Sesame Street Live or Bear in the Big Blue House Live or the show at MGM in Disney or go to Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. But ..other than that..LOL ...Disney - more mUPpets...please

    Just be patient. Disney only just bought the Muppets and they have a lot of plans for Muppet stuff. I mean, just look what they have already done so far:

    -Kermit, Piggy, and Gonzo co-hosting Annual Disney Christmas Parade
    -a television movie special "Muppets' Wizard of Oz"
    -Muppets appeared the other night on ABC's Monday Night Football
    -The Muppet Show season 1 on DVD
    -more special edition Muppet films being released soon
    -Muppet Vision 3-D at Disney Theme Parks on both coasts (even though it has been there a while) Also, Disney's California Adventure used to have a Dance Party show with Animal and the other Muppets.

    They can't crank out too much too quickly.

    Ah yes....but Bear, let us dream...come! Dream with me...LOL :D I know what you're saying. It's just so sad to see such a great innovative project put on hold for so long. It's awful that Jim died...his legacy wasn't even complete...I know of so much more that man could have done...I'm thankful....truely I am! I'm just ecstatic that Disney's promotion of The Muppets is essential - to the point - and poise...Hopefully, the audience will increase and The Muppets will be back on top like before! :concern:

    Hopefully The Muppet's audience will broaden as the years come.. :)

    They are currently trying to get another Muppet show somewhere in the Disney-MGM Studios by late next year. Perhaps they can take out the Little Mermaid show, and put the Muppets back where they first started in the park.

    Anyhoo - don't expect to see any Muppet rides anytime soon. I'm a CM over at the Great Movie Ride, and I would LOVE to see a Rainbow Connection scene - it'd be so simple to do, and I think people would get a kick out of it.

    You know, I think I may have been on your car when I was down there! :)

    Wow, that's weird... hope you enjoyed it.

    If you rode anybody's car whose name was Jeremy, it was me. I've been the only Jeremy there for about 3-4 years now.

    Well then, you were really quite energetic on that ride. A highlight of my trip to WDW, as a matter of fact. :)

    I think "The Haunted Mansion" movie was based on "Phantom Manor" in France as opposed to the WDW one.
