Saban Is Pure Evil!

    Saban Is Pure Evil!!!!!!!!

    Though some people were offended by a certain rapper being in the Christmas special (for the love of Mike, let's not start that again), while others were offended by a Disney buyout, this really cheesses me off!!!!

    The Evil Saban, Brain child of stealing old Japanese shows that you'd be weird to like past the age of 10, will now get the Muppets into his evil clutches (I can only picture Dr. Claw...interrestingly enough Saban wrote music for the Gadget cartoon, one of the ONLY good things he's ever done).

    Say what you will about Disney, but I cannot just stand here while he buys them into extinction. I can see David Golez, and Bill Barretta just sitting on the corner with signs saying, "will manipulate puppets for food," whilest Saban greenlights Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in the center of the Earth.


    My mind will explode in ten seconds.....

    Joke all you want, Emmy Mik! I cannot stomach the fact that the great, classic, wonderful, god-like Muppets will go to a company who made such terrible pointlessly violent garbage. It's like Jackson Pollack buying the rights to Leonardo DaVinci!

    NEVER ON THIS BOARD HAVE I BEEN SO SCARED!!!!! NOT EVEN WHEN RESIDENTLILLY...well, if you're in the Action figures discussion board, you'd know!!!!

    I just hope the spirit of Jim Henson haunts Haim in his sleep!!!!!!

    Or worse!! Maybe we should tie Mr. Saban to a chair and make him watch all the episodes of Power Rangers end to end, and put one of those Clockwork Orange dealies on his head!

    Haven't you read the lord of the rings? The Last Alliance Of Elves And Men was the battle in which Sauron was defeated when the ring was chopped of his finger. Saban is an evil similar to sauron

    You know we're in trouble when Lord of the Rings tactics sound good.

    But I don't want to chop off his finger. I'm pretty sure another Saban would grow from it and make 50 more Power ranger sequals!

    If this leads into a lord of the rings spoof story in which 9 members go out to destroy saban,I have dibs on one of the hobbits

    Tooth ma man, whats your trip? I realize that whenever a news article on a possible JHC suitor comes ou ton the AP wire, fans on here get all wacked out and start shooting down the company.
    As Luke has stated, JHC as a company is in dire need of a buyout.

    I surmise no matter who would be reported as 'in talks' people would cry foul.

    Trust me, if tommorrow Viacom was reported in the running people would start posting 'Viacom is evil!'

    Let's all wait til we seen the ink dried on a contract and a press release stating an actual buyout.

    I'd like to interject that, actually, it's not Saban Entertainment that is buying the Muppets but Haim Saban himself. Saban Entertainment was sold to Disney awhile back - and yes the mouse now owns Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (shudder).

    Saban is not going to significantly mess with the Muppets. He made a fortune with Power Rangers, et al not because he loves ultra-violent dubbed children's programs but because he's smart and knew how to sell a show 10 year old boys would love.

    Nobody should be panicking just yet.

    Well, Mr saban is Sauron.And all of those black rangers will stand in as the Nazgul.
    What do you guys think about the spoof story idea?

    "he's smart and knew how to sell a show 10 year old boys would love. Nobody should be panicking just yet."

    Umm, I AM panicking because that's all that guy CAN make is crapola for 10 year-old boys.

    Can anybody point to a good production made by Saban? I don't know of any.

    I'd rather have Warner. Or even Viacom. Or ME with a winning lottery ticket.

    Uh...I'm still allowed to disagree with people here, right?

    If you count Spider-Man Unlimited, X-Men: The Animated Series (oringal from 90's), Silver Surfer, and others.

    I meant like, creating stuff.

    They didn't create those Marvel characters.

    Don't get me wrong, Saban does have good shows, like the ones Bean Bunny said, plus Walter Melon, Mad Jack the Pirate (I LOOOOVE piratyes, and Bill Kopp), and Spy DOgs (which is suspiciously like my cartoon idea, Skunk Squad). Unforutunately, these were on olny a season (two seasons if you're lucky) because Power Rangers is his little cash cow!

    (If you want to know, I wrote a rousing parody of the Rangers called Super Powered Rescue Rangers Time Bores, in the end, Monterey Jack uses that "magic wand" to make him grow bigger, and beat the heck out of "Hire'em Subpar," my name for the owner of the company, until he promises to cancell the show.)

    I sure hope to GOD that Saban doesn't even have power over any Muppet thing. I just hope he keeps "Philanthropist (sp) Distance," menaing, he buys Henson, and lets Henson jolly well run the company any way they want!

    But COME ON!!!! This still isn't that great of news!

    Well if you consider getting a huge audience and making an A$$load of money good, I'd say power rangers and digimon.

    I work at a DayCare and I've not once seen any of these kids come walking in with or wearing Kermit and Co.

    Hey I don't like the shows either but I watched PowerRangers when it first aired and liked it. It just got overused with toomany spinoffs. I don't see that happening here.

    I just see a rich man with nothing of his own to play with anymore. I'd rather see him than someone who has too many characters to manage successfully anymore (see Disney's falling stock) I don't see why dis is such a golden savior for you folks.

    and some call the henson fans dilussional.
