    this should be fun.

    notice the puppeteer holding up gonzo. That must be an uncomfortable position. It looks like he is sitting upside down on the floor of the Dumbo. You could see his left leg in blue jeans

    Very awesome pic.

    So do you think that was Dave Goelz in there, or a stand-in?

    To make a good use of the Muppet/Hensen franchise, they should make a LAbrynth walk-through with David Bowie doing voice-over work. Just one of the several armchair Imagineering ideas I have in my head (and I have a few).

    It'd be a great idea, but Disney doesn't own the Labrynth property. Their purchase with Henson only includes the Muppet Show/Muppets Tonight/main Muppet cast (a range which goes from Kermit to Bean Bunny to even Bubblehead Bill), Bear in the Big Blue House, and I think that's it. Dinosaurs was done for Disney before the purchase, IIRC, so while Disney does own the Sinclairs, that was a seperate deal. Labrynth, Dark Crystal, Fraggle Rock, and other smaller productions like Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas are still owned by Henson Associates. The Sesame Street cast are an entity unto themselves right now.

    Of course, Disney could certainly license the Labrynth property for a decent price, because like I said, it's a great idea.

    Re: Muppets Part Of 2010 Promotion?

    I think the muppets may be in for a bit of a renaissance pretty soon. I read a while ago that Jason Segel (the big oafish guy from I Love You Man, How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) had a deal in place to do something new involving the muppets since he is obsessed with them. He's a pretty hot commodity right now, so I expect this project to go forward. Since this ad campaign is scheduled for 2010, Disney is probably expecting to take advantage of the hype from the new project.

    They removed the posters of Jurasick Pork and Lawrence of Amphibia (to name a few)?! That can't be good....

    Re: Muppets Part Of 2010 Promotion?

    So presumably the Muppets are hosting next years promotion, right?

    "...commercials and publicity packages for the 2010 marketing blitz. It's shaping up to be a rather clever campaign..."

    Don't get me wrong, I like the Muppets, but isn't 2010 the 55th? Seems a little strange that an acquired franchise and not necessarily widely recognized DISNEY name is involved with this kind of 'milestone.'

    Reportedly he has already submitted a script of a classic movie with the characters being themselves, not other characters. From what I have read, this looks good!

    Re: Muppets Part Of 2010 Promotion?

    55th i dont think is something of a huge milestone i would be more concerend if they were the 60th ad campaign. To me it just seems like they need a comeback and the time is right to re-educate the children and adults of who the muppets really are.

    I hope this is true. I looked up info but haven't found much. The muppets need a new creative story, and a decent budget! I think Segel can provide these things.
