Who owns it? If only things were as simple as the standard-rich and famous contract, Kermit The Frog and friends signed with World Wide Studio. When the Jim Henson Company sold Muppets to Disney in 2004, the sale included some, but not all, of the character’s cinematic back catalog: The Muppet movie, The Great Muppet Caper, The Muppet Christmas Caroland Muppet Treasure Island (the last two of them were co-produced with Disney). The Muppets take Manhattan (produced in collaboration with TriStar Pictures) and Muppets From Space (part of a fizzled development agreement with Sony) stayed with Sony.
Where does it stream? To complicate matters, the two Muppet films that Disney made internally after the acquisition, Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted, is over on Netflix right now. The Disney-owned 70s, 80s and 90s features are on Disney +, while Showtime subscribers can stream The Muppets take Manhattan and Muppets From Space.
