..concerning Disney's lack of Muppet attention lately. I feel that the only reason Disney bought the Muppets was after negotiations with Pixar broke down, and they were purchased on the rebound as a way to glom onto something with some quality to it. You see, Disney's last few animated films weren't a draw (at least the ones after Lilo and Stitch), so Disney either needed to get back with Pixar or get someone else to help them out. CHicken Little did pretty well, but The Wild was a flop. And I don't care who came up with the idea first, but Madagascar was the superior one. I mean the Wild had Jim Belushi... who were they kidding? Anyway, when Disney decided to buy Pixar, they felt they could exploit their stuff some more, and they felt they didn't need the Muppets.... which is why all the products seemed to mysteriously vanish after the buy out.
