So far the marketing campaign for The Muppets has been heavy on the parodies of other films like Green Lantern, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and in the famous first teaser trailer, generic rom-coms. Now with the Thanksgiving release date rapidly approaching, it looks like the marketing team is going back to basics with these four simple and classic character posters.

It seems like Jason Segel and Disney are really putting everything they’ve got into returning the Muppets to their former glory in the pop culture limelight. I truly hope they succeed, because these are wonderful characters created by a wonderful, creative man who should never be forgotten. Click on the thumbnails for the large, hi-res versions.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
