    Frank Oz

    Jerry Nelson
    Steve Whitmire
    Carroll Spinney
    Fran Brill
    Martin P. Robinson
    Kevin Clash
    David Rudman
    Joey Mazzarino
    Carmen Osbahr
    Karen Prell
    Kathy Mullin
    Bill Baretta
    Brian Henson

    The only major performers who have passed (that I know of) are Jim Henson and Richard Hunt.

    What's wrong with asking which Muppeteers are still living??

    There isn't anything offensive or inappropriate about the question. It doesn't delve into anyone's personal affairs. I say, let the question be asked if someone is curious. It is perfectly valid. However, I am not a moderator. So, if Kevin or Phillip feel it is inappropriate, let them close the thread down.

    I don't see anything offensive about this either. I mean sometimes I have to ask if some of my favorite people in the world are still living.

    I think the Muppeteers would be the best people to answer the question of whether they are still alive or not.

    I personally think a Muppeteer would love to see their name on the "alive" list. Of course, if they're not on there and they're reading, that's the problem. :o

    All of these people, as far as I know are alive and kicking. However, my fellow Floyd fan, a few of them aren't performing anymore. Frank Oz is essentially retired, and Jerry Nelson only regularily performs for Sesame Street and not his muppet characters.
