Following the departure of Eddie Murphy as Oscars host and Brett Ratner as the show's producer, there is speculation that The Muppets may come to the rescue.

Deadline.com reports that a Facebook page has been campaigning for The Muppets to host the show since February 28, and support has increased since the departures of Murphy and Ratner.

Disney owns both The Muppets and ABC, the network that broadcasts the Oscars.

The 84th Academy Awards take place on Sunday February 26.
