    That's a licensed Henson item from the past, they've just written Disney cos of the Ebay keywords.

    Jim Henson would be so upset. I'm very very :mad: right now. I don't want to see Disney's Muppets. I want to see Jim Henson's Muppets.

    OMG did you guys check their really really bad feedback? I don't care what they're selling, I'd never bid from them.

    That's an old Henson licensed product from beofre the Disney deal. The person selling it just wrote Disney because they either are ignorant, or to get more people because of Ebay search keywords.

    I don't think so. First Jim wanted the Muppets to be at Disney, he wanted Disney to own the rights to them. He wanted Disney and the Muppets to be together. But when he died the deal fell though, it took until now for it to get compleated. Second I don't think Jim was so egosentric that he would need to see his name before The Muppets to be happy. I don't think Jim would be upset at seeing Disney's Muppets. The lack of the "Jim Henson's" in the title on merchindice and productions is ok with me. The magic and legacy of Jim is still there (and will always be there).

    Darnit, Jim.... ya scared me! I thought "(c) Muppets offshore holding trust amalgamted" was dead... but this looks like one of those E-bay Misnomers... like that one time they had a train with Hamm (of Toy Story) on it, and the seller called it Miss Piggy....

    You can give a guy a heart attack for that!

    As previously stated, it's the seller listing them that way. Nowhere on the actual product does it say "Disneys Muppets."

    You also have to remember that some people think the Disney deal went through when Henson was still alive, back in 1990. I hade an auction on ebay saying "Get these while they last, Disney has just bought the Muppets and these might not be for sale ever again." And some lady wrote me an email YELLING at me for false advertisment, saying "You need to get you facts before you start selling thing on Ebay, Disney has owned the Muppets ever sence the early ninties. What you are doing is false ad." I emailed her back with some............words! Alot of People think Disney has owned the Muppets for years.

    Guys its not that Diseny is making/creating their own Muppets because we all know it would flop. But I grantee you that Disney is making money off the Muppets because they bought the royalities or have become apart of the Advertising schem. I mean Disney's MGM Theme Park has a 3-D Muppet Show that captures and introduces the audience of all ages to the Muppets. They have a store dicated to the Muppet. I know I have a large Gonzo head pruse and my sister had the matching Animal head purse. You peopel are over reacting in my oppinion because if you like it or not Disney is going to have their hand the money value of childrens productions. I am not for support of disney buying out the muppets but do understand that with the Disney name backing the Muppets and the Jim Henson company stands to make more money.

    We know all this already...

    All this thread is about is that people do not want to see Disneys Muppets labeling on the Muppet merchandise, which is very understandable. I don't see how overreacting fits into the picture here. It's a discussion. And having Disneys Muppets as the logo or not will make no difference financially.
  13. There is nothing o talk about. The "Disney's Muppets" is not an official title. It's from the eBay seller. Disney has not put anything out that says "Disney's Muppets". It is still Jim Henson's Muppets at the moment and will probably remain that way. Jim Henson goes with the Muppets. The two names are synonymous with each other. Disney and Muppet aren't.

    It is NOT an official title. It's from the eBay seller who knows Disney owns the Muppets so he put Disney's Muppets.
