DISNEY, MUPPETS END TALKS

Walt Disney Co. and Jim Henson Productions broke off talks Thursday after failing to reach an agreement on Disney's plans to acquire rights to Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the other Muppet characters. The proposed deal to acquire Henson Associates Inc. was valued at $100 million to $150 million.

Disney also had sought an exclusive production agreement with Jim Henson Productions in the talks, which began in August 1989.
