    Like all of you, I have great respect for Frank Oz. I feel that because he is doing something else that enjoys just as much, we shouldn't have to be upset by the fact that he is not working with the Muppets like he used to.

    I think circumstances have pushed him out the door at Henson and it seems to be going that way with Sesame Workshop. too.

    he has things to do considering his filmaking days.

    Well, like its been said, his intentions was to ONLY do new Ernie and Bert sketches, but I think the only reason he's done new stuff with Grover lately is because they involve the old Grover - Fat Blue routines.

    I noticed that when he did the russian sketch. and Frank performed Grover in newer kid moment Sketches.

    Yeah, that's true, but I think it might be that he just dose not want to do it anymore because the people he once worked for are not being true to what made then what they are, and have become.

    I think you're right. As the companies have become more commercialized and not part of the Henson family, its more about getting a professional job done, on budget than arranging certain things for traditions sake which are gonna take time and cost more money.

    It'd be nice if they got him to direct one of the movies, or if there was some kind of event he would turn up at to be honoured for his Henson work.

    Frank has recently taped sketches for Season 40 of Sesame Street, so he's not officially done with Sesame Street.

    Once again, this is REALLY old. If you want to say something, try not to reply to something someone said that is really old. There are more recent threads that are more relevant to the show now; leaving no reason to post a reply to something somebody probably has forgotten they said.

    Okay, I was just saying.

    In the tough Pigs interview, Joey Mazzirino has CONFIRMED that Frank has been busy for a while, and will have a few skits in the 40th season. In his own words "be on the look out for Frank as Marshal Grover and Jerry as Fred the Wonder Horse."
