A new social media campaign by The Muppets mysteriously mentions two of Disney’s top Imagineers. Two tweets (so far) first reference Walt Disney Imagineering President Bob Weis and then Imagineering Senior Vice President Joe Rohde in a new campaign called the RainbowConnectionChallenge.
In the tweet below by Kermit the Frog, Bob Weis is mentioned as a colleague that Kermit and the rest of the Muppets are grateful to work with.
Then, just a few hours ago, Fozzie Bear took over The Muppets twitter account and gave a shout out to Imagineering legend Joe Rohde. Fozzie Bear thanked Rodhe for giving him a compliment about his hat during a meeting that the two attended. Fozzie Bear took the time to compliment Rohde on his taste in accessories, a signature look for the creative mind behind Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Neither Weis nor Rohde have interacted back with the accounts on social media, but fans of the Disney Parks have been wondering if this new campaign could signal a new or improved presence for The Muppets in the parks. Of course, it’s possible that this could be completely unrelated to the theme parks. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!
The Muppets are currently represented at Walt Disney World in the MuppetVision 3D attraction and PizzaRizzo dining location at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The area that contains the attraction and quick service restaurant used to be called Muppets Courtyard, but has been renamed to Grand Park. The Muppets also have a presence at Regal Eagle Smokehouse in EPCOT.
