I think they should have the old tv show on the Disney Channel. I know I would watch it.
I second that! I love the old show, and just think of the whole generation of kids that have never even heard of it! (Plus it would take some air time away from the *Tween* shows that I'm pretty sick of... :devil: )
I think they will revive the Muppets, It seems like there has not been to much activity with Piggy and Kermy!! I'd love to see them more often.

I don't hold out much hope for this union. Firstly, Disney does not own full rights. I never pinned down the full details, but they are limited in what they can do. Secondly, I've noticed that Frank Oz has had little involvement in any recent Muppets projects. It's bad enough that Henson has passed, but the Muppets with neither Henson nor Oz is unlikely to come close to meeting expectations.
They will have them do countless movies based on long standing stories and concepts, therefore watering the characters down, and robing them of their personalities and soul. (Need I mention the 2 movies under Disney that they have already done?) Further making them fade into vague public recollection, and remain in the novelty status they have achieved since Jim Henson passed away.
I had hope when I saw "Muppets From Space" and the NBC X-mas movie, but now that Disney is in the drivers seat for them, I really think they will be ruined. Watered down, and therefore, dumbed down for today’s PC audiences.
It really makes me angry to think that these characters will not be around for my kids to love and enjoy as much as I have growing up, and still love to this day. If they are around, they will be a shell of their former selves.
they are also coming up with (dare i say it) a muppet musical on broadway!(cue evil theme music) the idea is cool but its going too far. its true thogh... michael eisner announced it in the annual report!
