Hugely underrated as a director. Not everything he did was great, but the great ones are SO great.

I think Frank Oz, Jim Henson, Doug Henning, and Raffi are real-life magical people. They don't seem to make 'em like that anymore.

Somewhat related, Trading Placeshad another muppetteer featured in it, a man by the name of Richard Hunt, aka the voice of Scooter, Janice, and many others.  He played Wilson.

Elmo's over 40. That's just part of his yearly physical now.

It's also anniversary date of 'Star Wars' release.

Not calling it 'New Hope'.   It's 'Star Wars', damnit.

If a yearly physical involves any orifice being... probed up to the Dr's elbow I'd consider asking for a 2nd opinion (or getting abducted by aliens, you do you etc)...

If you haven't had a good manly laugh and cry lately, Frank Oz is always good for it.
