1 The Muppet Mindset: Sam the Captain American Eagle

Jul 23, 2011

Sam the Captain American Eagle

Yesterday marked the release of Marvel Studios' latest film epic, Captain America: The First Avenger. And, considering the fact that Disney now owns Marvel Comics and its parade of super-characters, it seems only obvious that Disney would begin to combine their own original beloved characters with the beloved characters from the Marvel universe. So... which Disney character would we be seeing don the iconic Captain America garb and holding that shield? Mickey Mouse? Stitch? Woody? Nope. None of the above. But see below...

Yup. That is Sam the Eagle dressed as Captain America. It's awesome. It's random... but it's awesome. Who would have expected Disney to make an official poster like this? Also... note the wonderful mash-up of the Marvel logo with the new Muppets "M." I think this is one of the only times that I've actually liked that M. Kudos to the Disney marketing team on this randomly awesome poster!
