The Great And Powerful Oz - Happy Birthday Frank Oz!

 As I have stated numerous times, I am a massive Star Wars fan. Have been since I was a young boy. And growing up with Star Wars I was familiar with one of the great cinematic characters, Jedi Master Yoda. 

And this character was brought to life by the magnificent Frank Oz. But even BEFORE that, I knew Frank Oz. From my toddler years watching Sesame Street.

When I first heard Yoda I thought he sounded a lot like a Sesame Street character I was familiar with, Grover! Turns out I wasn't too far off. At all. He's voiced iconic characters like Grover, The Cookie Monster, and would team up with the legendary Jim Henson as he would voice Ernie, Mr. Oz would voice Bert. As Mr. Henson would voice Kermit The Frog, Mr. Oz would hilariously voice Miss Piggy.

He would form brilliant collaborations with Mr. Henson with projects from Sesame Street and The Muppets franchise and with the great George Lucas with the Star Wars sequels. His partnership with Jim Henson also included the '80's fantasy masterpiece "Labyrinth." 

He was also responsible for directing cult classics like "The Dark Crystal" and "The Little Shop Of Horrors" remake. So many incredible films from this very, very talented man.

He's more than a puppeteer. More than a voice over artist, though he excels at both. He is, to me at least, a living legend. Happy birthday to the unmatched talent that is Frank Oz.
