After Disney acquired the Muppets, the company set out to reintroduce the characters in movies and TV. One of the first major productions was "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz," which was based on L. Frank Baum's original book rather on than the musical film. Though the Muppet movie received a film festival debut, it ended up going straight to TV, where it received poor reviews.
