    This Tuesday June 8 on The Today Show, Muppeteer legend Frank Oz is scheduled to be interviewed about Jim Henson, the Muppets and the legendary "Muppet Pipes" at NBC Studios.

    Watch the interview on The Today Show on NBC and let us know your thoughts.

    Very nice. Kind of short, but I'm very happy to see Frank involved in the unveiling of the Muppet closet exhibit.

    I love hearing Frank talk about Jim. And I love his description of the Muppets: "Affectionate anarchy."

    I set up to record this today. Looking forward to checking it out when I go home tonight. Phillip, since this thread branched off from the other one, yes I was wondering if June 8th was chosen for any specific reason to have Frank on.

    Just got through watching and really enjoyed it. Great to see Frank Oz and Jimmy Falon (knowing he's a Muppet fan) unvailly it. just glad to see Frank is still around when you need something Muppety to see.

    This appearance was short but I liked it a lot.:) It's great to see Frank talk about Jim and Muppet memories. "I'm here for Jim and the guys" got me to "aww" out loud.

    I must say that Frank did an excellent job with the interview. It is always wonderful to hear his side of the story relating to the Muppets and his directing career. God bless him.

    God Bless Jimmy Fallon he is a true Muppet fan, and now I think he should be named a Muppet historian so to speak.

    Wow first Fran Brill and Zoe on CBS News Philadelphia and the 36th Daytime Nomination Party and now Frank talking about the pipes. I like how they're bringing in the Muppeteers for TV interviews again.

    Toughpigs.com also has Brian Williams interview with Frank Oz posted (and an interview with Jim Henson about the pipes). Brian Williams interview with Frank is so much more emotional. They reintroduce the pipes to Frank. It made me tear up a bit. :sympathy:

    Did anyone notice that on one of the walls was a flat screen TV in a beautiful gold frame playing the Glow Worm sketch that Jim performed on Jack Paar's show the day he painted those pipes?

    Now everyone can see the first appearance of the Classic Glow Worm sketch whenever they see the pipes. :)

    In with the full Brian Williams interview on msnbc.com, there's also an older piece with Gene Shalit re-introducing the pipes to Jim Henson. Nice. :)

    Brian Williams unavailing the wall to Frank was so wonderful!
    Frank looked as though he was pleasantly surprised by an old friend (Maybe Jim, Don, and Jerry)...It was very, very, nice!

    I watched this as well. It was a nice little appearance and I thought it was very touching how Frank kept mentioning he was there for Jim and the rest of the guys who have passed on.
