    This is just another sign that Disney has no idea what to do with the Muppets. It also shows that properties like Star Wars are more important to them. I personally believe that this is just another little slip of us losing the Muppets.

    Yeah, I saw that on your Facebook page and figured "Yup, Dwayne is gonna share this on MC."

    Well, that is sad to see. All I can really say.

    I can get over the new TV show getting canceled . I can also get over the firing of Steve Whitmire, but don't mess with Muppet Vision. It was the very last project Jim worked on, and for fans that should really mean something.

    This right here the lack of care or passion about something that sure may seem minor to people on the outside, but for fans it should make us mad.

    Yeah, this is really annoying. It just shows that Disney has no faith in the Muppet brand anymore. :sigh:

    how would you feel if they removed the balloon and either left it in storage to rot or refurbished it and used it in something else completely, like whinnie the pooh or something? Would you think it was just as disrespectful?

    Clearly the logic here is 'fans like this thing, lets let them own a piece of it'.
     
  14. LittleJerry92

    LittleJerry92 Well-Known Member

    Okay, but how are you sure they're selling it to fans? They could just be selling them to a dump or something.

    According to the article there taking parts of the thing and making them into pins.

    Oh. I thought the pins thing was just something else.

    Not according to the article no.

    I thought this was all a joke at first then I actually read the article and it dose appear a real thing.

    On the stand point of Star Wars land I kind of get it, but at the same time it's a theme park with focus not on Star Wars alone.

    However I think we all know that Muppet Vision has kind of been on its last leg for quite some time. I mean they have already closed the one in California, so who knows how much longer it will evendors be a part of the park. Which aginst would really bother me simply for the fact that it was the last production Jim worked on.

    Honestly just give the rights to the muppets to like Warner or Universal or something....

    I don't think so. I don't know about Warner, but Universal basically treated The Chipmunks even worse than how Disney's treated the Muppets.
