Muppets. Everyone knows them, they can be fun for kids (they are puppets, after all), and for adults (with their sharp humor). Being such traditional and famous characters, it makes me think: What happened to the Muppets?
In 2004, Disney acquired the Muppets rights for $75 million. After that, they made the successful 'The Muppets' 2011 film, followed by a sequel no one remembers (or seems to care). In 2015, they starred on their own ABC comedy, a The Office like show that wasn't really true to the characters.
Since then, this great Disney owned franchise has been sleeping. Even DHS's MuppetVision 3D's future is uncertain, even more now that they renamed both the Muppets Theater and Courtyard.
I really think they could (and should) do something with them, use the franchise. Maybe a revitalization of their old The Muppet Show on Disney XD! And why hasn't there been a live Broadway show starring America's favorite puppets?
So, what do you think Disney could do with this famous franchise?
