    It's always a good read when Frank is interviewed; such an intelligent man with an honest soul in an industry of $, as all the Muppeteers are.

    I wonder if that phone "breaking up" when "the camel" is asked about was planned by Oz and Tough Pigs before the interview (as in, they expected that to happen) or if that's his way of avoiding things he doesn't want to talk about (maybe the documentary sheds some light on that, Tough Pigs clearly saw it already but most of us haven't) and did so unexpectedly.

    Of course he does that when Harvey Kneeslapper is brought up, as if he doesn't like talking about him, but then when TP said they don't have to Oz did talk about the character.

    I think the camel bit is an inside joke from the movie.

    This interview was great because Frakes dives into the current state of Piggy and Animal, and he also shares his thought about Eric Jacobson wich I don't think I've ever heard him talk about before.

    I love this interview. It's great hearing Frank talking about the Muppets again publically. I'm really excited for MGT to come out to see some of the stuff TP was talking about.

    It's weird he mentioned Don Music was one of his favorite characters but he hates dead Muppets.

    I find it interesting how Disney has treated Frank.

    After giving that article a read, I gotta give Frank props for his trolling humor with Tough Pigs.

    You bet I am. :p

    In seriousness though, that was cool he admitted to being a fan. Given that he's probably done some puppeteering for their songs too, I can see why.

    I don't think he fully explained what a "dead Muppet" is, I kinda assumed one who was taken off the show because they didn't exactly work out and who the performers don't like talking about (though many performers have talked about a lot of their old characters in interviews), if that's the case, I don't think Don Music would really count as a dead Muppet. He stopped appearing because Richard Hunt died, and then they stopped showing his old segments because of imitable behavior, not because the character didn;t work well. Would you say that other discontinued Richard Hunt characters like Forgetful Jones and Placedo Flamingo are "dead Muppets"?
