Frank Oz has been outspoken since the release of The Muppets ( 2011 ).
In 2013, he said in quote " Those are NOT The Muppets that Jim ( Henson ) had intended. Their job is to be rebellious and say SCREW Disney ! "
Frank Oz has equally mentioned about the decline of Sesame Street. https://twitter.com/TheFrankOzJam/status/1167823896126443520
The decline of Sesame Street shouldn't be a secret to Muppet Fans ( who ACTUALLY read the books. ) Street Gang by Michael Davis revealed Sesame Street's decline since CTW ( now Sesame Workshop ) decided to compete with Elmo in the early 1990s which changed EVERYTHING since.
For those who know about Jim Henson's passing, Jim Henson died during the final negotiations of selling his company to The Walt Disney Company which through out was stressful. Jim traveled back and shortly after he got sick and died. His death was very tragic in a short period of time.
In the article and in the documentary from " In Their Own Words ", Frank Oz mentions that Jim wouldn't have " gotten sick " due to the stress of the Disney deal. Joan Ganz Cooney said something similar in the book " Street Gang " as well.
