More from the Muppets

posted by Nell Minow

The Wrap reports that the Muppets are having a comeback.

After being put to pasture a few years ago following a string of disappointing films and a ho-hum return to TV, the Muppets are a pop culture phenomenon once again.

And they’re doing it by popping up all over the Disney corporate matrix, including appearances on ABC and ESPN programs, top billing on the Walt Disney Company’s homepage and, soon, in a network special and feature film written by “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” star Jason Segel.

They’ve adapted to the era of social networking with two videos that have become viral sensations.

Coming up — a Halloween special scheduled for fall 2010. Can’t wait!
