    As I recall, Frank's only able to put in about a day for Sesame Street each year nowadays.

    That's true, I heard he only does it a couple times a year!

    Yes, but without the implied sarcasm. (May have been Internet misreading)

    does that mean, he won't be doing the muppets, again?

    Technically he hasn't had anything to do with the Muppets for a while...

    This appears to be ranking up there with Chick-fil-a/Henson and Romney/PBS in the Issues Muppet Freaks Don't Want to Let Go Of Department...

    Don't look at me I didn't start it back up again. The Chick-fil-a thread how many pages is that up to now 100? Probably the same amount as the Romney vs Big Bird thread.

    Oh indeed! The popcorn for example - that was really overdone! I don't like it when my popcorn gets burnt.

    No worries though - given how the number of new Sesame episodes have declined over the years, it's only a matter of time til everyone else at Sesame Workshop is only putting in a day for Sesame each year. That Frank...always the ahead-of-his-time trendsetter...

    Yes, Bob only appeared in a clip last season, not in any street scene. And Steve Whitmire in just one episode. At least Frank taped 4 clips last season ( Spidermonster,The Heaviest Catch, Coffe tree and a song of Grover, the last 2 appear on season 43) and he came back early this year and taped the Birdwalk empire clip, Im sure he did tape more clips but I dont think it will be shown until season 44.

    It's too bad we don't get to see Bob that much anymore. Or Bert and Ernie. But hey, things have changed. And Steve and Eric won't alway be available.

    Yes, I think Frank is more active on Sesame Street these days than Steve.

    Well Steve is just a little busy over at Disney nowadays. Not much just a little.

    I just don't get Frank anymore. Why doesn't he like what he used to do! Why does he hate MTM and MFS, its getting really annoying. If Frank disagrees with the "new muppets" then so what. He left the muppets and he doesn't even direct anymore, so if this is something Frank's doing to get back with the muppets than why'd he leave so suddenly? MAYBE HE'LL MAKE A COMMENTARY FOR THE DVD RELEASE OF SEASON 4 OF TMS COMING OUT SEPTEMBER 8, 2014

    April Fools!
