    I agree with Bean Bunny, I think they should move Muppet Babies to PLayhouse Disney. What do you think of this, have the puppet muppet babies from the "Muppet take manhatten" introduce the episode or talk to the viewers a little bit. "Goooo BYe Bye!!!" :o

    Maybe for Disney to celebrate 50 years of Green Special they will have a clip of Muppet Babies. My dream would for there to be an advertisement from Muppet Babies volume 1 coming... during a commercial break.

    To further expand on the idea.....

    MUSCLE was based on Kinnikuman, a japanese manga and cartoon series which was originally a satire on their own "Ultraman" (Much like The Tick and Darkwing Duck being satires of American Superheroes). Down the line, they changed the comic's plot from Kinnikuman being a bad super hero to a wrestler. The cartoon was too violent for America back in the 80's, and was breifly shown in Europe, before a Character who was a Nazi (BTW, the characters were international stereotypes) caused so much controversy it was cancelled.

    The idea was brought back in 1997, when the original creators decided to make a sequal of the series, Focusing on Kinnikuman's son, Kid Muscle (this is going to sound a bit familiar to some people). It was made into a cartoon in 2001, but flopped (the animation company moved alot around, and made everything a bit more juvenile) in Japan. It was brought over here in 2002, and called "Ultimate Muscle" which was a pretty good show... I liked it. They also, maxdrive, brought a toy line over here
    Back in 2002 These didn't do too well, and although 12 sets were produced, only 4 were sold nationally in America.
