The Muppets "The 12 Days of Christmas"

I know it's past Christmas, but I couldn't help but post this Christmas song from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Not exactly animation, but puppetry is quite an art!

And Disney bought the Muppets brand from Jim Henson, which makes this a collaboration between Disney and NBC. NBC is part of NBC Universal, which is owned by GE. So essentially this is a collab between Universal and Disney.

Seeing how, under Robert Iger, Disney has bought the Muppets, Pixar, Marvel, and even Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (Walt's pre-Mickey character), Disney is really soaring under Iger's leadership. They (Lasseter and team) just need to give Disney their first bonafide animation hit since Tarzan. Unfortunately, Bolt and Princess and the Frog just didn't break the jinx. Hopefully next year's Rapunzel will do the trick.
