    Agreed.

    But I think the Muppets are missing out. They would be a great fit in the "Comcast Disney" empire. ;)

    The former AOL Time Warner doesn't need to buy Disney. They're both identical. They both have movie studios, networks, etc. That's just getting two media giants at the price of one.

    But I don't think it's serious, Time Warner has its own problems. And they already house Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, and Tom and Jerry. But Mickey and Kermit under the same roof would be cool.

    Wait, didn't someone buy Henson last year?

    Would do you think about Pixar & Henson being together than Disney
    I think this would be a cool combo

    That would be cool, but Pixar is now considering buying Disney as well as Microsoft.

    Good grief. They're the world's second-largest media company and they have to go through this.

    I like the name The Walt Disney Company, but if Comcast succeeds they better darn well rename themselves Comcast Disney.

    not one bit...!

    Its too bad 'Eisner' is the key word here. I personally think its an effort to win back some shareholder support. This courting is not out of love, its just a lousy boyfriend scratching at the door again.

    It doesnt seem like Henson's is in the financial place to create their own projects without a big backer like Disney. So Im sure it makes for an interesting proposition, but lets face it,, Eisner's Disney is looking for a female dog, and not a partner. They have lost Pixar, who was always way way WAY out of their league, and I think Henson has that potential as well.. A Pixar/Henson combo completely opens the imagination, a Disney/Henson makes me cringe.

    I've watched the cashing in of theatrical animation by Disney execs and now that the industry is on its deathbed, they are looking for a new 'host' to exploit. Im sure these were all part of Jim's original hesitations to signing with the mouse,, I only hope for the best for the muppets, I really do.

    Good luck guys :concern: :concern: :eek:

    This is a cool thread, considering that a few days later Disney bought the Muppets...

    Yes, the head of Disney parks reported that Muppets will be appearing more in the near future at the Walt Disney World Resort and it's sister park.

    Screamscape has a link to the interview. He doesn't say much though, it the Muppets are coming. The rest of the interview is about the new Buzz Lightyear ride coming to Disneyland and something called Virtual Magic Kingdom, which sounds like a Hug Multiple Player Online RPG.
