Yay, he's better.
That's terrible. I had no idea. I hope he feels better.

He's better, people!
Wasn't it convenient that the "gasp" smiley was one of Frank's characters?
Frank Oz is well again
Great news Everyone Frank is going back to work tomorow he emailed me personaly i am still excited im jumpiong up and down i cant belive he emailed little old me wow but he is doing great and will be going back to work tomrow i love the people at the JHC i wrote Frank sunday when i found out he was sick and got the E- mail tusday i thought i wouldnot get anything. this makes me so happy wow its big for me i know i sound stupid but im loving it ...
*MC collectively breathes again*
that is awesome news to hear!
This is such good news.....it sounds like IMdB's report may have blown the situation out of proportion by not providing details. I doubt much shooting would have gone on Frank's movie last week anyhow - I believe Nicole Kidman and many of the stars are here in Toronto for the Toronto International Film Festival anyway.
I do think it's very cool that Frank took the time to reply (and very prompty!) to those who took the time to wish him well! You know I have never met Frank so I can only go by what I have heard and read, but the people I have spoken with over the years who have met him or worked with have had nothing but kind words, respect and praise for him.
I don't want to sound like I am complaining, but there's an unfortunate tendancy among a few members here to sort of "Frank-bash" and complain about how his career has taken him away from puppetry or how he has allegedly "abandon" the Muppets to become a director. I don't think any of these things are true at all and I think most MCers agree with me.
Hopefully the experience of dwayne and others will put these silly notions to rest once and for all!
Shoot, Frank Oz rules!!
I suppose, though, that when he gets my get well wish I mailed him it'll be too late. I hope it'll be too late in the regards that he'll be in tip-top shape!!
I dunno how folks get personal emails from Frank, but here's what I got:
He's up and at it again and feeling super well!

The buzz lately is that Frank is ill. Any news that you can update us about his health? I hope you're going to tell me he's up and at it again and feeling super well!!

Boy, I was worried when I read that post. It's true Frank's characters are in good hands with Eric Jacobson. Still, it would be tragic if something happened to Frank. I'm glad he's doing better.
I'm so glad Frank's okay Although, I never did get to send him my get well card. Oh well, maybe I can edit it a little and call it a "glad your feeling better card"
We're all glad Frank is ok!
If anything happened to Frank it would be as bad as losing Jim Henson, anything bad happening to someone involved with the muppets would be bad.
Jerry Nelson isnt sick is he?
I sure hope not!
Jerry is just fine now. That "comes from the highest source... Jerry Nelson himself" as one member once put it.
Thank goodness for that!
I just got a response from Frank Oz today. He's still very active and well, and isn't uninvolved with the JHC, the letter came from the JHC Fan Mail address, and he's still responding to fan mail, so he's still working under the JHC employee mindset.
