The Walt Disney Company have announced that it will buy the Muppets characters, along with the Bear in the Big Blue House franchise from the Jim Henson Company. The deal ends a long time pursuit of the characters initiated by Disney in the early 90s. Financial terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.

Henson will retain the Creature Shop, as well as the rights to its film and television library, including Fraggle Rock and Farscape, amongst others.
