    Today is Frank's birthday! So today we pay homage to one of the funniest men in show business. A man who brought us Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Grover, Cookie Monster, Bert, Sam Eagle, Animal, and so many more! Here's to you, Frank! And even you're gone from the Muppets, your spirit lives on always! :o :mad: :(

    Happy B-day! He definitely is one of the funniest men in show business. I've known his characters since childhood and he never fails to deliver. Even more impressive, I remember what the old 60 Minutes special said of him: "...whom many consider the greatest puppeteer in the world!" Nice! Hehe

    Personally I commend him for branching out and trying new things all these years, he's directed some great films. But right now, I'm going to listen to Bert's rendition of "Some Enchanted Evening!" :(

    Happy birthday to the man who gave voice to some of my very favorite characters including Cookie Monster and Grover. :)

    Yes... And here's another happy birthday card from me to you Mr. Oz. Two of your mainstays have and always will be amongst my fave characters cause they always make me laugh: Cookie Monster and Animal, along with Bert too.
    Just don't let someone ruin the birthday by pulling your nose off. Though that might be harder with a human than with Bert.

  12. Frank Oz's Birthday!

    :excited: Happy, happy birthday Mr. Oz!:excited:

    May you have the most Muppet-tastic of birthdays!

    P.S.: Is that him pictured at the top of the main page (news page)? Never seen pics of Frank, so I just thought I'd ask.

    P.P.S: Does anyone know when Dave Goelz' (AKA man behind my favorite Fraggle, Boober) birthday is? Just curious.

    Happy Birthday to Frank Oz!

    In honor of the day, here's a little bit of what "Of Muppets and Men" has to say about Frank:
    "Frank Oz's humor is a sudden release of energy, a surge of comic inventiveness that is in direct proportion to his habitual seriousness. It comes bursting out almost despite him, as if a psychological dam has crumbled... His comedy has vitality because to him it is a necessity; it is crucial to the way he deals with the world... Oz is one of the keys to the Muppets being funny because he has the ability to trigger the other performers. Time and again he provokes responses which add to the comedy of the scene being played."

    (Patricia: Dave Goelz's bday is July 16th)

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Oz!

    Just think, somewhere out there in the world, Frank Oz is celebrating his birthday. That's awesome to think about. I hope he has a wonderful birthday, since he's given his fans so many wonderful moments with his creations, both in puppetry and in directing.

    I celebrated Frank's birthday by ordering a pizza and watching "Revenge of the Sith". All those great Yoda scenes...

    (Raises glass) Here's to you, Frank Oz. Happy Birthday!

    Frank Oz is one of the many Muppeteers that I admire. He is one of the few that I would like to meet. Happy Birthday Frank. :mad: :o :(
