    Yup. Kermit is even featured in JCP's Christmas ads. I snapped this photo on my television the other day. However, the thing about marketing is much of the deals are made in advance. The real test will be how much we see next year and next Christmas.

    I am seriously worried about the Muppets brand. First Muppet Vision 3D, now the app, MMW wasn't a huge success...I really hope this isn't their demise.

    Aw maaan...how disappointing...that app was so much fun to play...even though I got pretty bored with it and stopped playing it for a few months.:p

    Yeah I liked it for a while, but then there was such a long streak where NOTHING happened between the Gulag stage and this Muppet Man nonsense... the Muppet Man thing was the nail in the coffin for me for this game. As fun as it was, it was getting really BORING lol and then after waiting so long for something so underwhelming... it was time for me to stop.

    Ya, I think we should get the hint that the muppets are sadly fading away a gain. Instead of adding anything, Disney has been taking away stuff. There are no viral videos, movies are not an option or television, apps are being deleted, attractions are being taken away, this is sad. At the beginning of the year it seemed like the muppets were popular like they were in the old days, now it seems that we are back in the early to mid 2000s rut. this is just sad for everyone who like the muppets, depressing, not just this app being deleted, but the larger scale.

    I can't really complain about the app being closed down. I had a lot of fun with it for a good while and all for free. Can't really beat that.

    I do hope it doesn't signal the ultimate demise of the Muppets though. That would be a sad, sad world. But, this is Disney we're talking about. Like any major corporation, they're in business to make money and if they think (or numbers show) that the Muppets aren't profitable enough to keep around, they'll be tossed in the Disney vault. That's just the way things work. Sad, but true.

    So what was everyone's favorite stage? Mine was definitely the rooftop.

    Ooh...maybe either the muppet theater or the MMW gulag.:p

    Mine would be the Muppet Theatre. Just something so timeless about that. The rooftop was a close second though.

    I don't necessarily think popularity is the case. The Muppets Most Wanted campaign came to a close and the contract for the app probably did too. It really was just a promotional tool and Disney likes to tuck things like that away in its vault until it's time for another promotional surge for a future project. Apparently they did the same thing to an Avengers app.

    The real question is - when does Frozen go back in the vault? I think it's time. :p

    Frozen goes back in the vault as soon as they get/produce another movie that becomes such overly-exploitable huge as it did. Who knows, maybe Jungle Book and Cinderella will become 2015 cash cows after their new live-action movies are released. Or maybe not. *Shrugs.
