Happy Birthday Frank OZ

frankozarches_zps4099e156

The man, the myth, the legend – Frank Oz – celebrates his 72nd birthday today.

Oz was Jim Henson’s right-hand man from the beginning, helping to create some of the most memorable characters (as demonstrated above), as well as Star Wars’ Yoda.

But Oz has gone on to build a second, and highly accomplished, career as a film director.  Just check out his credits.

So thanks, Frank, for bring us so much joy and inspiration!

And if you’d like to show your love for Oz, consider sporting some character socks.
