  4. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: FRANK OZ - DIRECTOR AND PUPPETEER

    by , 12-10-2008 at 09:32 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    I was one of the original Sesame Street kids, those children born in the 60s who were the first audience members of the show that revolutionized children's television. Early on in my career I had the opportunity to work on the green card petition of a puppeteer involved in creating characters for Sesame Street productions around the world. Getting a behind the scenes tour of the workshop was one of the cooler experiences I've had in my work. Now that I have kids, I've enjoyed watching them get the same enjoyment from the show and as a family, we're definitely muppets fans. One of the early talents who worked with the late Jim Henson is British-born Frank Oz, the voice of characters like Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear, Grover, Cookie Monster and Bert. Oz also was the voice of Yoda in the Star Wars movies. And he has also developed a great reputation as a director of live action movies such as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and The Stepford Wives.
