Nobody's retired. Jerry, like Frank and everybody else, has other projects and works when he can. He does still regularly tape for Sesame Street.

True, nobody's on staff but that has no bearing on which performers appear when.

Frank's career is his own. He is still actively involved in the Jim Henson Foundation and attends many of their events.

no one on staff, eh? so, theoretically, they could all quit? (I don't see all quitting at the same time!) and get out home free (except for the mobs of fans? :wink: )

You think Frank learned how to get into movies by listening to Gonzo??

Could be. :concern: Just hope Frank doesn't get blown out of any cannons anytime soon.

I just got a response from Frank Oz today. He's still very active and well, and isn't uninvolved with the JHC, the letter came from the JHC Fan Mail address, and he's still responding to fan mail, so he's still working under the JHC employee mindset.
