Tell us! Tell us! What was the sign!
EXACTLY! Of course, this is a good thing! Let's just keep our fingers crossed that Henson did learn it's lesson and that hey have the big boys knocking down their doors for some piece of their creativity!Originally posted by grouchman
maybe it's not the best "business" decision, but this has got to be the best muppet news i've heard in a long long time.
while jim henson was one of a rare few creative people who also posessed business savvy, his work shows he cared about the creative side first.
and maybe during the turmoil of the years between the sale and the buy-back, the henson people have learned some valuable lessons which will make their future easier to manage. there has certainly been a powerful effort to increase muppet awareness in the past few years, where before there was practically nothing.
cheers to brian and the family for making this happen. i hope with the added value and media attention the muppets have gained with recent exposure, it will be easier for bigger dogs like disney, columbia tri-star, nbc, fox and others to do licensing deals with the classic characters and new creations, while putting the creative people in more of a "take it or leave it" position when it comes to "the suits" and program content.
like the others...i never saw this coming. it's nice to have a PLEASANT surprise for a change.
