Me while reading this thread right now:
I am a Muppet fan! They could be owned by anyone or any company and I would still be a Muppet fan!You're right, it doesn't mean that they're "destroying" the Muppets. But it's just what it seems like sometimes. Just my opinion. What, am I not allowed to have a negative opinion on Disney?
Same, only I'm chewing with my mouth closed.Me while reading this thread right now:
It's not that I have trouble with Disney (I love Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck), it's just that I don't like the way Disney's handling the Muppets as of late. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed "The Muppets" 2011, and I also enjoyed "Muppets Most Wanted," but the TV show made me want to cringe (seriously, Miss Piggy just standing there when Kermit broke up with her? Even my parents, who aren't as big as Muppet fans as I am, couldn't believe that one! Kermit would be flung clear across the street if he broke up with Piggy!)I am a Muppet fan! They could be owned by anyone or any company and I would still be a Muppet fan!
I have very little respect for the way Disney has dealt with this whole issue. From the fireing of Steve, to the out right lies that they and Henson are spreading to distory Steve's character. If there is anyone who is having bad bussness ethics it's Disney. So @ErinAardvark don't worry your not the only one whobhas trouble with Disney!
The fact that Steve didn't want to refute the Henson children out of respect for Jim really puts Jim's children to shame.Speaking of interviews here is the best story on this whole issue.
Guess you have a point. But I do think he wouldn't have taken sides.Guys, I hate to be 'that guy', but there is some truth to this. If this were happening and Jim were still alive, then he probably would side with his kids. They're his kids after all. Most fathers will stick with their kids, they love them after all.
On the other hand though, "fathers must discipline their children" as well, so perhaps he would step out of heaven and come up to both parties, lay his hand on their shoulders and say, "Steve, I do think you've become more arrogant ever since you got the role of Kermit, but I know that your heart is in the right place, you just need to tone it down a bit. As for you" - addressing his kids - "the Muppets were about peace and love, not hatred against other people. Remember that the next time you respond harshly against Steve."
F*** me, it's 12:30 at night, I'm not thinking straight. Feel free to disregard this whole post.
