Muppet Studios - The World That Never Was #5
In May of 1990, Jim Henson suddenly passed away at the age of 53. The timing could have not been worse as he was so young and was working on so many creations while planning to merge with the Walt Disney Company in order to create more under their banner. That merger also gave Disney the right to create an entire Muppet "land" at it's newest theme park at the time, the Disney-MGM Studios. The death and aftermath of the Muppet Studios is actually a common tale. Death creates problems and ripple effects that impact all of those around it, not just the person who has passed on. In this episode we discuss how death impacts family and companies, and what happened to Jim Henson's creations, as well as what might be a return to an old idea.
