|I took this picture of Frank Oz in the late 90's
while working on a "Sesame" pledge-break
special for PBS. What can I say here
that people don't already know?
Frank was quite simply one of the best
puppeteers ever -- he brings his characters
(like Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Animal, Cookie
Monster, Grover, Bert, Yoda) vibrantly
to life like no one else can. He's incredibly
smart, and although his mental process is highly
analytical, he is able to throw that all away
and perform with great abandon. It's easy to see
how Frank's become such a successful director.
And yes, that's Cookie Monster draped casually
over his arm.
