An Open Letter To The Walt Disney company

Dear Walt Disney Company & The Muppet Studios,

As a dedicated fan of Jim Henson and The Muppets, it has come to my attention that their integrity maybe in jeopardy. In the last few months there have been countless news articles and blog posts about the termination of long time Muppet performer Steve Whitmire. Now I have heard both sides of this story, and I’ve also tried to look at this from every possible angle. In doing so, I have come to one conclusion: If Mr. Whitmire was in fact standing up for the integrity of the characteristics of The Muppets, then his thoughts should be heard, and at least considered. Your company has a long list of enduring characters, and the reason they have withheld the test of time is because of your protection. You now own The Muppets, and as a fan I have always had high hopes for what this could mean for them, but feel that things are coming up short.

So in conclusion, I would like to sincerely ask that you would protect the Muppets. Just like you have with so many other characters.


All the Best,

Dwayne Fletcher
