I've seen a lot of the Youtube comments and also the different Disney kids fan site comments, in fact i was curious so searched out a lot of kid opinion on this - from what i've seen, almost 90% of the kids who've bothered to even have any opinion thought the special didn't make any sense, but was good because of their teen stars. The problem is that most didn't even notice the Muppets or just called them "puppets", majority didn't like them, and Miss Piggy seems to get a much more negative reaction that Kermit. I think they will have to do a lot more than put the Muppets into sketches with the Disney stars to actually get the kids into them (if ever) although if it gets the viewing figures they need to make a Muppet movie i'm not complaining. I saw most of it, some of the parts were done ok - especially Miley and Ashley Tisdale. The script was completely awkward and wooden, and nothing was done to actually introduce the kids viewing to the characters - how can anyone expect them to "get" the Muppet brand if it is written more in a style to plug the shows and movies instead of actually making it clear who each character is and why they are like they are? Production wise it was done well, though yes, edited to oblivion. I think its nice to have the EM Band back (and you can hear Disney execs rubbing their hands together hoping they take off with the kids enough to release some albums). I don't like the way they have kept the sex thing up with Animal and hes now having dates with a 15 year old ... if hes working with kids he just needed to go crazy, or after their mothers lol. I didn't find it funny - lets be honest the Henson creative team has never worked well with Disney, it needs a fresh approach because if they just keep the same people around we'll carry on seeing the painful things like this and Wizard Of Oz - maybe these people could write/produce for the Muppets ten years back but i think they forgot we've moved on ten years and are set in their ways, or just dont work well with new people. I think its 3 specials that are planned, and its coming across very much like they are trying to shove it down kids throats like medicine, and kids really aren't being stupid enough to fall for it. I don't think it achieved its goal because it wasn't written or put together well enough to give the kids any reason to like the Muppets, and it seems they didnt - maybe if the few interstitials that did work (Miley, Ashley) had just been put out as short little clips running over and over on Disney Channel it would have been more memorable to the kids but as a special i thought the stuff that had obviously been shot as filler to round it into an actual show/plot let it down.
