The Magic Cantina is the Disney Studio’s communal character cafeteria, where all of the characters now owned by the Walt Disney Company crossover to share a sensible meal. The management of The Magic Cantina were so excited to hear that the Tenth Doctor’s episodes of Doctor Who have been picked up for broadcast on Disney XD, that they issued him an exclusive dining pass lanyard so that he might be able to dine with the other patrons of The Magic Cantina!
About a month ago, Gonzo The Great was appointed as the official greeter of The Magic Cantina, and in Issue #23 of our cafeteria newsletter (“Vaguely Familiar”), we witnessed Gonzo lamenting the fact that The Muppet Show was no longer on television. In a moment of weakness, he made a “wish” to be back on television again, which can sometimes be a dangerous idea when around all of the assorted Disney characters*.
It was officially announced earlier in the week that Gonzo and the rest of his Muppet pals will be making a return to prime-time television this fall…but we trust that Gonzo will still be able to make time to fulfill his greeting responsibilities for The Magic Cantina!

*No guarantees are honored for wishes made on anything other than stars while on Disney property!
