I’m sure Frank and Disney could work together very well if the situation came up today. I know it’s easy to speculate about who would fire who. I’ve sometimes theorized that the current producers at Sesame Workshop and HBO would have fired Will Lee before he died, but I really don’t know that for a fact. Same thing with Frank and Disney. Frank Oz is a superb performer who was with Jim from the very beginning. Very few other muppeteers can be compared to him and I think he would always have a place there. Frank and Jim were great friends and it stands to reason that it is difficult for Frank to see anyone else in charge of the Muppets. As I said before, Jim Henson did it best, but unfortunately things change and they would have changed even if Jim had lived. But, it’s only natural to long for the good old days. God knows I do.
