The recent illness of Frank Oz has brought up a few qustions . like is he still with the muppets? why was he not in the last muppets movie for tv.? and is he just pushing the muppets to the side and going to bigger and better things? I think it is safe to say NO !!!!!!!!! If it was true then why would he be answering mail frome there web site. Frank got his big start from the muppets and the same for the muppets like fozzie and ms. piggy . Jim could not have done it without him . i say we give him more room to do things other than muppets . The Jim henson Comony is doing more then just muppets and no one semmes to mad about that . so give poor Frank a break he is doing the best he knows how . im sure that after the lose of his boss partner and good friend Jim Henson he was wondering if he would evn be with the muppets at all . so give him some room is all im saing he is still doing a great job for the muppets and other projects to.
