Ooooh! I am very happy about this. If done right it could be a great way to strengthen the Muppet brand while appealing to longtime fans.

I hope it has an attractive style. I did like the pseudo-manga style stuff featuring Fozzie and Pigs in Space a while back, but I'd rather see it look more traditional and less kitchy than that.

Whomever is the artist, they certainly have a lot more resources to work with these days as far as attractive head-to-toe character maquettes.
