With the success of Disney's recent addition of interactive robotic characters to its theme parks, Imagineers have created an advanced robotics division in their Science Department. The department was created in 1967 shortly before Walt's death to experiment with nuclear fission.
"With our new Animatronic Muppets, Disney invisions human versions that can take over repetitive tasks in the global marketplace," said a Disney spokesperson at a recent press conference. "Dangerous jobs may become a thing of the past with this promising technology. The military has also expressed an interest."
Financial experts praise the corporation for its ingenuity. Stock prices are expected to soar if Disney receives a government contract to develop remote-controlled soldiers.
A Disney cast member, speaking on condition of anonymity, expressed concern. "The next thing you know there's going to be Oscar the Grouches scooting around the park picking up garbage. Not to mention the greeters at the gate. I don't think some desk jockey miles away should replace the dedicated employee working out in the famous Orange County sunshine."
Guest reaction to the Muppet's bumbling scientist Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his "meep-meeping" sidekick Beaker has been nothing but positive. Not since Lucky, a 20-foot-long dinosaur who walked the Animal Kingdom in 2003, has there been a roaming Animatronic at a Disney theme park.
