Disney said that they were submitting scripts for Muppet shows to Disney, Promoter, Paul Bridson said this was not the case. After two shows in Irvine and Stirling Disney lawyers discovered that they asked the estate of Jim Henson, the late Muppet creator, last September for permission but were told the rights had been sold to Disney and were misled.
