    But who sells the most movie tickets? DVDs? Merchandise? Which company is up for sale? ;)

    in other words which company has the most money sucking CEO's.........

    Looks like someone cloned Murgatoad....

    But let's not forget.

    Which company has made annoying sequals to classic movies? Which company keeps churning out cheesy, overpriced slave labor merchandise? Which company owns networks full of horrible television shows? WHich company took Winnie the Pooh, and turned him from a classic work of children's liturature into an overexposed farce?

    But I agree with Stultz... that kid is such an annoying creep, brainwashed by Disney's Tuesday night sitcom line up!

    Question for Phillip Chapman

    HAs Murgatoad been banned and he's trying to get back on the board?

    I found his "other" post and it is indefiantely him!

    In the post about "Why isn't the Muppet show on TV anymore. he posted:

    "Because puppets on TV are ancient history, man. Not even kids want to watch them anymore."

    What a hot headed son of a snake!

    I thought we decided to ignore him.
  6. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    Ignore him? I thought he was banned and tried to show up again in a pathetic attempt to make us think there are two people out there like that!

    Man, does this guy even have a conscience?
  7. scarecroe

    scarecroe Well-Known Member

    Point being it's obviously him and here we are giving him attention again, which is -- as has been pointed out -- exactly what he wants. His IP is being logged so the Admins will take care of it.

    The issue is being addressed so please continue on as usual. No need to give him the satisfaction of responding to his messages.

    (Trying hard not to give eviltoad...errrr....whatever he's going by this week any satisfaction)

    You know, one more time and we have to get the authorities involved. He's gone from annoing poster, to stalker.

    Saying that, it's just hard to think of someone thinking that Henson is a total sell out, when Disney is out there somewhere rolling in his freezer. You couldn't number Disney's bad decisions with a really really big abacuss. I mean, Lilo and Stitch and Emperor's new Groove were the only two non-Pixar things that disney has done right for years. They've seriously run out of ideas, and are making horrible cheapquals of all their movies. What possesed them to make Cinderella 2? It's over! Does anyone even know what the story is about? Well, of course, we'd have to track down the 2 people over the age of five that have seen it.

    In a way, I'm GLAD Disney dropped out of the running. I, personally wouldn't want to see MCC 2, the Re-Scroogening or MTI 2, John Silver's revenge.

    The new screenname is rather funn-ee! :D

    If you think about it, most people create screenname which they could associate themselves with, and seeing as he chose "frog anus..."


    Yeah, it was my understanding, too, that we were going to ignore that guy.

    Personally, I think it's his right to feel that way, to express his own opinion. Just he should have more gumption about him to post it at a Disney fan site instead of being a jerk here about it.

    If you don't like Muppets or Henson, don't come to a board about them! Easy as that.

    Of course, I'm preaching to the saints, so nevermind. ;)

    BTW Cory,

    Regarding Stulz, he's a great cartoonist in his own right. I still have his business card from out there at MFest.

  12. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    EXACTLY!!!! That's the exact message he's just too (insert own nasty comment here) to understand.

    Apparently, Frog Anus is where his POV comes from!!!! HA HA HA!!!!

    Ignoring.. ignoring...ignoring.....

    Ignoring uninteligable bullies is really tough to do, but I'll try!

    Super Scooter Well-Known Member

    (several things to say about Disney and frog anus, but will attempt to hold back)

    I hear ignoring is the best revenge. :D

    Man! I wish I had been at Muppetfest. I keep hearing all these great things! First the "sneaking" bakstage, and now the actaully knowing what you guys look like!
  14. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    I hear that! Apparently, he has no way to make friends, so he tries to make enemies instead. That he's successful at... well, that and puckering up to Michale Eisner's butt.

    Agent J, buddy...dont you think youve exerted enough size 10 arial font type on this character? C'mon now...that is the point of a rabble rouser, to illicit the most commotion and noise from people.

    Also, hey I though you were a huge Disney proponent? heh
    I will agree, Disney is just making themselves look bad...almost like Michael Jackson did with that interview! No wonde rPixar wanna squirm out of their contract(tho Pixar wouldnt have half the money they got without the Diz)

    Sure they raped every idea A A Milne had into utter oblivion(tho I do love the new Adventures of Winnie the Poo, tigger movie, and cant wait to see the new Piglets movie) And sure Tran Thuk is stitching together Goofy dolls he cant afford. And sure they are continuing to release tepid cheapquelk after tepid cheapquel, covering up theme park deaths like some sort of hidden mickey, and letting Osama and Saddam use the employee malt shop and club 33...but let's forget about that for a second.

    The Diz when they want to, accomplishes some astonishing stuff(Fantasia 2000, Emperor's New Groove, Tarzan the animated feature, etc)

    Unfortunately the milking and pillaging of classic after classic has just begun. I am a bit interested in the Mickey 50th movie though.
    Poor guy hasnt starred in his own movie since the 20's!
    (and I mean the 1320's, when he was the star of a 14th century Maltese Fresco comedy troupe)

    (in best Bobby Benton voice)
    I know I know!

    Just that I cannot stand Bullies. I have been bullied all my life, and they get away scott free. I'm a nice, non-violent guy and I just have to take anger out on these guys. Even if I try to stop.... man, so tough!

    Actually, Disney has it's Hits and misses. Totally agree with the stealing thing. I mean, it's just funny that I'd actually get to the point of HATING Winnie the Pooh, since he was one of my absolute childhood faves, from watching TNA and the classic shorts. Just when that Pooh craze came to fruition, and he was EVERYWHERE, it killed it for me. Almost had the same feeling with Elmo, but I got over it.

    Yeah, I mean, between Lilo and Stitch and Emperor's New Groove, those are my absolute two favorite movies. And I always wanted to see Fantasia 2000. I actually heard about this idea back in 1994 (originally titled Fantasia Continued). Tarzan just didn't click with me. I really really wanted to like it, but it fell flat at some points. Did love the elephant, though!

    Well.... that was a coincidence. Mickey was actually the product of Felix the cat and all those guys. There was this style of drawing cartoons back then (called the New York style) and, oddly enough it stems from ... get ready for this... BLACK FACE!!!!! Kinda disturbing, I know. I have a history of Animation class, and this was disgussed.

    But Really, I kinda feel sorry for the Mouse. I mean, no one really likes him as anything but a company logo or mascot. Heck, they stopped making Mickey Movies because people liked Goofy and Donald much more (me included) because they actually had a personality. But still, Donald flies off the handle (and I can relate) and Goofy screws stuff up with the best of intentions (I also can relate)... what does Mickey do?

    Walt may have achived more (Disneyland, WDW, two hit television series, almost every major award, accolades from almost every country, etc), but I wouldn't say his "creative genius" is superior to that of Jim Henson's. Both were great directors, both were childs at heart and both are two of the greatest entertainment figures in history.

    That would explain his little known 1931 short "Massa Mouse and the Colonel of Mississippi". While I was just kidding about the 14th centruy Maltese fresco thing, man...I never picked up on the connection between Mickey and turn of the century Minstrel shows. I do know Disney banned its own film from ever being seen in the modern era(the slave themed cartoon/live action Song of the South) Disney should just come clean and come out with an addition to Tommorrow Land and New Orleans in Disneyland. Call it Confederate Land...Slave Ships of the Carribean, Backwoods Bear Minstrel Jamboree, and Grand Wizard Walt's Magical Ride. I knew Disney had some dark stuff to hide in the black magic kingdom, but dang! That just aint cool.

    So yeah, it's the same old story. Hitler was a member of club 33, Walt's frozen's body is underneath Disneyland, and the final hidden Mickey is a sign of the apocalypse.

    Btw, ya havent seen Fantasia 2000? Oh man, GO RENT OR BUY NOW!!! Brilliant!!! (The whale segment and the Metropolitain jazz Gershwin number are my faves from there)

    LOL!!! But really, that thing about Black face ISN'T a joke! I mean, look at Boscoe and Honey, Felix the cat, and Bimbo the dog. Talk about being Bamboozled.

    Honestly! I ain't makin' this stuff up.

    Of course, it's a lot more watchable than the extremely long and boring Winsor McCay shoirts. I know he was one of the first animators, but really, his stuff was so repetitive. I mean, it was brilliant and all for it's time, but now a days, it looks like they took a 2 second scene of a House flying and turned it into a 30 minute movie.

    And Modesty... hoooo boy, if you ever catch one of them, he is so full of himself.
