A possible buyout of Henson by the Walt Disney Company, didn't look very likely right now. Eisner is being pressured to fix the company's profit by year's end and that includes cutting costs. Right now, a buyout wouldnt' be good thing for Disney right now so Henson might end up with someone else. I know you are all very sad. Of cource, I could be wrong. Disney might try to buy the Muppets. Oh well, hopefully we will find out by this fall or winter.
