    And people don't like my Disney bashing.

    Remember how releaved we were after Mikey Eisner was usurped from power? This guy seems MUUUUUUCH worse so far.

    Sigh... Disney lets us down again.

    But really, what do we expect?

    Did Disney publish Disney Adventures, or did someone else publish and buy rights to Diz?

    So, basically how much money are they losing? Since it seems like they're making a mint by shoving those annoying HSM brats on the magazine every 2 pages.

    I heard they were selling more issues than any mainstream comic book. I don't understand.

    This perplexes me. If it is successful then why change it? Maybe they will be retooling it into a new thing - High School Musical The Magazine. Just kidding! Although, I just don't get the popularity of the shows. I suppose it's not geared to my age bracket, but even so - I appreciate a good story and didn't see anything new or interesting in that production. It's okay, I guess. Just not my taste. Rant over. :o

    Maybe it's a potential-for-growth issue. I thumbed through a copy of the Disney Adventures Mag a few months ago and it all looked like ads to me. Was it always like that? :confused:

    Dont forget "The Muppets wizard of Oz", plus the work that has gone into developing the mobile Muppet Lab, plus the projects, such as the mini movies,which are currently being filmed.The projects havent been "lies".Not everything that gets developed gets released.

    Sort of, but not quite. I was happy they reprinted (of all things) a Darkwing Duck comic in the latest issue (while I would have rather the muppet comic, Darkwing is my favortie cartoon show). But seriously, if they're making money off of something, cannning it? What the shell is that? It makes no sense whatsoever. If it was dead weight, I could see....

    But I think that this whole regime change at Disney was a change for the worse. As bad as Eisner was, this guy does seem worse, especially Muppetwise. I mean, had they not purchased Pixar, they would have lost half their cash right then and there. They would have made their own Toy Stroy 3. Nuff said.
     
  10. My thoughts exactly, muppetperson.

    Sadly, that's true. but we WANT it. Muppet Oz? Crappy film... Mobile Labs? Didn't get a chance to see it. Mini-movies? That's a euphemism for "commercials for Disney products with the Muppets shilling horrible TV shows"

    I was at California Adventure, there wasnt no muppet mobile labs. The Muppet 3d gift shop got turned into Monsters Inc. The Bear in the Big Blue House live appears to be no more. Seems to me like Disney is doing what most of us assumed: Buying the Muppets so they could quietly fade em out into total forgotten obscurity.

    I cant blame Disney for Muppet Oz, that was a joint effort with JHC. And while I like what JHC is doing(tho the Fraggle film and Dark Crystal sequel seem to be on hold sadly) I think it was a massive mistake to sell the Muppets to Disney.

    I can't help but agree with you Beaker.
    We still have to keep our heads high.

  14. BeakerSqueedom, I thought that you and I were on the same page on putting the Disney Blame Game to a much-needed end... :cry:

    Could anyone here have some high hope for the Muppets? I guess not. That's what Disney wants. They want us to forget about them so they can fade them out of obscurity. If we don't keep fighting for them we'll never seen anything new.

    Don't forget about the Muppet Season 2 that has all the episode uncut. I know that the comic was the biggest thing to happen from Disney's end but don't get all down and say "Well there goes the Muppets. There done for. Disney doesn't want them to begin with."

    We have to keep our hopes up and keep wanting more stuff. I say "All For One" like the song from High School Musical 2. We have to give them a chance.

    I know that everything we seem to want to get Disney says NO! and lets us down. I can understand that. But i see the bright side. No one wants the Muppets to fade out of Televison Classics. But if we don't side with each other and let this go on. We're going to be the ones who make them dissappear and no more.

    With what we are getting from Disney is what i think is the best to come out. I know we haven't heard anything yet on the mini movies and other things but give it some chance. Keep the spirit up of the Muppets. I know i am. And i'm not going to let Disney crush my spirit and let me get my hopes up. If they say something and i get my hopes up and they let me down. I'm going to say that's Disney for yea. But i know all the other things i have of the Muppets. Records, Movies, Plushes, Books, Collectiables and everything else that i love about them. I have you guys to keep me to keep my spirits up because i love coming here and talking to everyone here. So come on guys.

    Who's with me?

    Disney have no plans to put the Muppets into obscurity.Otherwise they wouldnt buy them.Projects take time to develope and as Muppets Wizard of Oz didnt do as well as they would of liked, I guess they are being cautious to make sure the next project works.Disney are getting new head sculpts of Miss piggy and Statler & waldorf as we speak.They wouldnt do that if they had no further use for them.

    I am Kyle, and I always will be. I firmly believe that the Muppets are timeless and immortal. There is no use in giving up, there's no use bashing Disney, it gets absolutely NOTHING accomplished. I've said this before, but if Disney sees people just giving up and hating on everything they do, do you think that will want them to produce more Muppet projects and keep our favorite characters alive? Put yourself in a Disney exec.'s shoes guys, they read this forum, and I don't think they want to see the fans of their product bashing them and giving up hope.

    Gosh No one is Blaming Disney they are just saying try a little harder where the old Muppet Spiriti I'd like to hope and think It didn't die with Jim.
    People are dissapointed as they should be it's hard not to be after a number of dissapointments outweighing the good things.
    They are on the right track at this point I say I just pray to Jim they don't fall off those Tracks and the train goes crashing into another wall. :)

    That is the spirit MuppetPerson.
    Thanks Ryan.
    You are one right dude JJH. You are right. It is hard and Disney should try harder but the ones who keep on downing Disney just needs to stop and keep in the faith. If they want. Let them write to Disney and ask them why some many things are going down and not coming out. I think we all should write to Disney and ask them about some of the things that have been canceled.

    I blame them both for it. It was a terrible idea, and they really should have used the 10000000000 other better ideas they had on hold. However, I do feel Diz had a hand in rushing it out and making sure they had a "tween" friendly star as Dorothy. But I think it was a mistake to make in the first place.

    But why are we blaming Disney? After that film didn't get extremely high ratings, and due to the rushed script it got bad reviews. now they're just twiddling their thumbs, trying to test the waters with their shoes on, and then they say "the water looks too cold." By which they keep scaling back any attempt to relaunch them.
