I've seen both companies take bizarre detours after their creators passed, but nothing as extreme as a 180 degree turn. Well, at least not on the Henson/Muppet front. That's rather extreme and would definitely have caused an enormous outcry. However, many can argue that the inclusion of so many headlining minorities in Disney films is quite a departure from the projects Walt would have approved in his era. For whatever reason. I'm glad the times have changed!
