"And frank oz and Jim was tremendously mischievous like ernie. And burke and frank share a kind of a conservative stiffness Although frank some wonderful guy and and you know any anybody who's capable of creating cookie monster grover and bert has got to be an exceptional person. But i and. I have to say that that that jim henson and frank. Oz could be the grand marshals of the heterosexual surprise. They both like women lot couple state. I saw a gay couple dressed up as berkner this year for halloween and was this slightly dress up lightly with the makeup in his. You know his nose was read like ernie's and he looked like drunk so i was thinking. Geez was ernie booze hound. I think it's interesting. That in all great works of art. They that people see different things about themselves. I mean you you write extensively about how the song being green meant different things to different people and i mean certainly. I see that. Jim henson had a lot of these intensely romantic platonic relationships with the people around him. He called joan ganz cooney his non sexual wife and you know and and like having a wife Lots of deep conversation and no sex. Yeah and i would say that. That's very similar to his relationship with frank oz and certainly i mean. Franco's trusted him so much that one one good story in your book that i is that backstage on saturday night live. I think it was. They took him a photo naked for a piece of for gift that he gave to him and franken so much. Trust and jim that he didn't he never even questioned why jim had asked that he be able to take a picture of him. Sort of naked. But oh is hands covering his genitals any sort of bent over toward the camera and Jim for christmas made Frankness incredibly intricate gift That was Basically it was a statue a bird and you look inside birth brain. And you see frank. A little picture of frank odd naked. So funny really illustrates the the subversive nature of jim. Henson is work. will there ever be another jim. Henson or another sesame street. I mean it feels like this was kind of a unique historical coming together of minds and people. Yeah that's that's how i see it. I think there will. They'll never be another. Jim henson and certainly None of his children are exactly like him. And i think the closest thing that you can come to jim henson in the world of the muppets is is kevin clash. Who is no. Kevin is Like jim a director producer. He performs a you know a a a a character that has entered the culture. kevin Travels the world and trains puppeteers co-productions sesame street. I'm every continent antarctica so And kevin clashes black and from baltimore. And you know it's just such a funny thing that is kid growing up in in In a basically a blue collar area. I've met a lot of the henson to the hens and family members and it's and what impressed me upon them is how much they physically resemble. Muppets hung out with heather. Henson in los angeles and when i walked into the restaurant we were hang out with her. She was wearing a giant pink. Wha- giant pink wig pink eyelashes pink. Kimono and she looked like a spitting image of prairie dawn. And i have to say that maybe subconsciously. Like jim henson thought about his children and the muppets as as as one in the same in a lot of ways and gave a lot of love to to his family but also to what his work wow and others one of the children. I've not met pink wig all email at the end of the show. we'll we'll trade email addresses. All email is a fabulous photos of her. Yeah you know Who knows what. Jim henson would have done. Had he lived you know he was capable of of so much and he was always sort of technologically. Twenty years ahead of everybody else and you know back when he died in ninety. He was already an engineering what he could do with. Cgi and a marriage of those computer generated techniques and and traditional puppetry He he wanted so much to create. And that's why he wanted to sell the core business so that he could go back to being a performer and a creator. Let's talk about the the controversy surrounding the hiv positive muppet kami from south africa. From tech. alani sesame. What was the motivation of creation of that character. And why was that. That was made for the sesame street that is exploited for south africa. But it wasn't until knuckleheads here including rush limbaugh took that story and twisted it in At tortured it That it became known to americans that that this was happening. A the folks who who Do the co-production in south africa. We we're doing very meaningful work in creating character that the children could learn about hiv aids from a country where it is epidemic and You know in the hands of certain broadcasters and irresponsible journalists in the united states. You know if it was made to seem like any minute. Now you're gonna turn on. Pbs and there'd be an hiv character on on the american version of sesame street and You know it became a caused slab and a tear the children's television workshop apart Well they were flabbergasted when anything else because they they knew what they were doing was god's work on earth goodness gracious. They were helping a country with with a major problem to see it. Bastardized in the american press was just exasperatingly to them and and also to see what happened when you know they. They were trying to respond to the the problem with childhood obesity in the united states by creating a little storyline for cookie that you know he he mixes salad every once in a while and they cookies are sometimes food and not a every every time food and you know that got twisted into you know. Cookie doesn't need cookie anymore. And you know these gone politically correct and So that really blew up in their faces in a big way because they have cookie monster rapping healthy food so good. Yeah and that's one of my favorite scenes of of sesame. Street is saying but is it a situation where where you know when you're creating programming for children. It your scrutinize more than if you were sort of creating entertainment for children and also when you're when you're talking about a show that that touches people so deeply in such a part of their childhood That people feel a sense of ownership. And you know they don't want it to change they simply don't want people to mess with The the core characters and 'same street so Sometimes adults can act very foolishly ab about the show after all. It is a television show. Hello and you know they they are puppets and you know the times change ideas change and i think it was a very smart idea to create Some funny segments involving cookie monster and and healthier foods and and typical sesame street fashion. They did it. You know with great good humor and very funny songs and I thought it was a great idea. But somehow after it goes through the funhouse mirror of of American.

"It's essentially a film of the long running interactive theater experience created by this boyish storyteller magician and Mentalists Delgaudio, who was constructed a piece that deals with identity. His own identity is audiences whether seeing it live or via this movie, and like the stage show that ran for over 500 performances, this is directed by Frank US. That's right. The voice of Yoda, Miss Piggy director of many terrific films in the past, and he was enchanted by this thing and mounted it. Without Gaudio and has done the film. I'll just say that it was surprising, engaging and sneaky and how it elicits the genuine emotion with its revelations. There are a few inter cuts from various performances other than the main one that serves as the bulk of the film, and they're included for good reason. It creeps up on you, but in and of itself will pay off your patients. It's available. One who, Lou? And finally I got to talk about. Let me just tiger. Let me just start. Let me just stop you for one second. I know where No, no. So I'll just give you 30 seconds. I saw this show in person, The Derrick Delgaudio show and it is Astounding. I mean, I would see it every night. It takes your breath away in every way. And I'm looking forward to seeing this and you're saying that it does come across on some level when you see it in this farm as a movie. Yeah. Absolutely. I was in and of itself off. Fantastic. I had never seen the live show anyway. I want to wrap up with the White Tiger, which is a candy adaptation of the novel of the same name with a career making performance by lead actor Adarsh Gaurav. He portrays Balram, who was a low caste Villager who decides to pull himself out of the poverty. He believes his peers are condemned to accept. So he gets a job driving the young, handsome air of a wealthy, corrupt businessman and the sun's Americanized wife, the husband and wife a shock and pinky. There's somewhat forward thinking, and they're also somewhat heedless and entitled, and they're very well played by Raj come around and as Pinky Priyanka Chopra, Jonas S o. The thing is mostly in English, by the way when they speak in Hindi, you do get subtitles, But it is primarily in English language film. It's only a matter of time here before the loyal Balram, who's accepting of his servitude in exchange for a better life starts to bristle at this kind of horrible inequity of his situation and that of many held in contempt by the fat cats. It's not that the White Tiger Makes Slumdog Millionaire seemed like Ernest goes to Mumbai. I mean, I remain a fan of slump. But this is way darker and deeply troubling, downright the Kensi in if you will, and I think it's going to stick with me for quite a while. The White Tiger available on Netflix. Wow. Wow. So to review the dig with Rafe fines You really liked it. In fact, you said that you dig the dig. And then don't forget. Don't forget Carrie Mulligan. The wonderful Carrie Mulligan. Yeah, I was just summarizing Michael. Yeah, I don't think that lady rose from Downton Abbey. I heard the whole thing. Okay. I have time to now. And it's on Netflix. Okay? Derek Delgado goes in and of itself. Which is a magnificent stage show, and this is a representation of the stage production again. Directed by Frank Oz. And Where can people see that? Who? Lou Julio and then the White Tiger. Which you really liked. It's a dial. I liked it. I liked it a little better than the dig, buddy. No, really.

I mean Netflix. It's better than one of those, you know? Yeah. Better than Yeah. Babble or 11 of those. Yeah, well, you know, Michael also, I just have to let people know this. Michael speaks French already. Okay, so for you that Lupin which I also watched I really I can't be the only four episodes of Lupin. What more coming Yeah, that's the first half of the season. Did you say there? Five or four? Five, and that's the first half of the season. Oh, I think I saw all of them. Um, listen, I got to say if you haven't seen call my agent. It's absolutely fantastic. Really. I've heard this from a lot of people. Yeah, I really got to get on that. And that's a and that's the French series. Right? It's a French movie. It's a smart inside showbiz comedy about the goings on at a high end Parisian talent agency with real French movie stars and TV stars like Isabel, who paired genre No. Monica Baluchi, John Deuchar, Dan You know Juliet been OSHA's fictionalized versions of themselves and then the final series, which is the fourth and last one.

"This is all of it. I'm Alison Stewart. It is not easy to describe the new who lose special. Derek Delgaudio is in and of itself, but that's kind of the point. It's based on the one man show that originally ran for more than 500 performances at the Daryl Roth Theater between 2017 and 2018. Those shows like the film version were directed by Frank Oz, who among many things is a filmmaker. And, of course, the legendary puppeteer. The One man at the center of the show is the Goddio, a self described storyteller and conceptual magician. And each show he would explore identity through short stories while performing mind bending illusions, But the Magic wasn't just about tricks. For example, in early part of the show involves Delgaudio, politely kicking an audience volunteer out of the theater during the show. Before they go, he gives them a journal. And since they don't get to see the end of the show, he tells them to write what they think happened. And then he asked them to return the next day. Here's a clip from the film in which Delgaudio explains why Based on the little that they know. They're asked to imagine how this story ends. And it's not blank pages that blank pages. Here's everything. You know everything. You've just heard everything you've seen. Now what? We're gonna fill it with It's just like the person sitting next to you across from you. What do you know about him? What have you heard? What have you seen? We're gonna put on their blank page. And it's that responsibility that That book. Presents to people is the responsibility wear all writing one another stories. NPR's Linda.

"Mojo for the whole show. Sucked in and off to double live alone. Who are you? Poor guy? Just you could say that if you want to, but he seemed to enjoy it. I didn't do it accidentally. Corpus. Yes. I'm sorry, Jeff. Go right ahead. Hey, man, Long time listener. First time caller. Thanks, man. The truck driver so You made my night last night. I guess I was listening to the clip of the day. And I'm driving down to really turn it on. And it's a girl talking about heaven kissing another girl or whatever being said she was heterosexual. And when you said that you kissed funnel lips mouth, I spit my coffee all over. My drug had to pull it off by the thank you was not expecting that. I appreciate that. Thank you. That's very nice of you. I really strived to deliver that unexpected moment where you have to. Maybe think about it for a second. That means a lot that you appreciate that Wasn't that Thea Wasn't that the lady from Tele? Yeah. Wasit wass, Joey, Joey Flash working on something special. Yeah, you'll just stay tuned our social media because Joey Flash is working on an animation of her phone call. And it is chock full o audio greatness that will be enhanced by some cartoon stuff. So stay tuned for that. I was not expecting that it just like day. Let me uh, let me askyou unrelated question. Okay? Not in Tampa. I don't know if a lot of people know this, but they did a mural an unsanctioned mural on the street. To commemorate the Swedish chef from from the Muppets. You know, they I guess whoever did it huge fan of the of the Muppet and the Muppet Show and probably the Muppet movies, too, and they put a big mural outside the police department for some weird reason. And it says about the blew up, which is obviously like a Swedish chef shout out because he would be the neighborhood Ladybird be skipping. So they put up a thing that says Bach. The group and I heard there later going to add bored bored to it in your city. Okay, if you if you had a city of your very own, Mr Dedicated listener truck driver, and you could put a mural upto any muppet that you think is an underappreciated Muppet. Which Muppet would you choose? Man. I like a lot of them. But which one do you really feel like, doesn't get the run that he deserves. Because I lo. I love a lot of Muppets too. But there are certain there's a good amount of Muppets that I don't think Get the get the run that they deserve the man. I'm looking through the run down right now, you two guys who used to sit up in the movie is that lawyer and Waldorf they they were very integral to the Muppet. The Muppet show Because they provided the contrary invoices. Fozzie would get up there and do a stupid routine and he'd go. Come on, guys, and they'd be like, Boo. That was terrible. It stunk. I loved it. I can't get enough that absolutely Statler and Waldorf would be would be in your your mural. Thank you very much. Maybe when they're done with this, But the group they'll put up one for Statler and Waldorf. Dude, What's the deal with away? Where is this guy? I don't know. Now. I'm not a Muppet guy. We've had this discussion. So this is just me. Spitballing here, Rizzo, the rat. Yeah, I recognize him is a muppet. You know what? No, no, no. There's no There's no, I don't think he needs your recommendation. Means the Muppet Well, I mean, he didn't come along until the Muppets take Manhattan, which was the third in the in the first trilogy of Muppet movies, So he's kind of Ah, Have a late comer. There were rats, but I don't I don't think any of them were given the name Rizzo. Until until Muppets take Manhattan. This is kind of fun to just throw some at you. What do you know about being bunny? Being bunny eyes is one of the most useless of Muppets starring role in the Muppet three D Experience Out then Disney MGM Now Hollywood studios completely pointless. Just an annoying rabbit in my opinion, barely belongs in the Muppet universe. Oh, wow! Yeah. That's I know that's a Muppet hot Take. So you won't be seeing any being bunny murals when it comes to drew town. Oh, dude, this is my guy. This is what I just found. My guy who Sam Eagle. You're you're Sandy Eagle got? Yeah, Yeah, I'm surprising. That would've been nice, actually, if within this mural that they did, which, yeah, but I think Sam Eagle's at least his representation should have been there. Honestly, for the political point that they're trying to make Sam the Eagle would be the Muppet most aligned with what they were trying to say when they said Bach, the group who's Frank Oz, Frank Oz was a Muppet ear creator, not creator. But voice artist of Let's say he did. Well, Yoda wasn't really a Muppet. But he did have miss Piggy. Hey, did some of the bigger Muppets I believe Grover, What's the deal with Annie Sue Pig? Who? Any soup pig? Oh, no, I don't know if you can't tell if you're working backwards. You know, I'm not. I think maybe she was like a rival. She looks like Miss Piggy. Right, Mrs Pig letter. Whatever name you say, Yes, Biggie. I think she was a rival for Kermit's affection. Yes. Well, I mean, that's what Miss Piggy would have said. I believe, though, that she she rivaled Miss Piggy for Kermit's affection. Oh, man hears this article. Does Kermit the frog have a pig fetish? An investigation? I just think Carmine was a very open minded guy when it came to interspecies romance for me. The most unheralded of Muppets was the band leader from Dr Teeth and the electric Mayhem doesn't get the credit he deserves. He's Dr Teeth and the song. Can.

"Know what? I just figured out your style really worked like Gregory Peck. Gregory Peck. Snotty comedian will just a minute, please. I have been a successful comedian half of my life. How come we got this? Did you come in here to be entertained or not? That's right. What's right? We came in here to be entertained. And we're not. I'd like to see you. Come down here. Be funny. You first. The new Siri's Muppets Now isn't nearly that funny. The joke's on his crisp, the individual TV show sketches go on much too long. And there are no musical segments, which you're sorely missed. Trying to recapture the old Muppet Magic isn't easy. The first Muppet movie managed to pull it off. But that was when the original Muppet show was still in production. And when Jim Henson and Frank Oz we're still the heart and soul of the operation At ABC failed with more recent revival attempts in 1996 and again in 2015. And Muppets now also is a very mixed bag. It's celebrity guests aren't given enough to do though they try Linda Cardellini is a good sport without any good lines. And the best sketch in these early episodes presents the Swedish chef as a sort of iron chef doing battle with guest star Danny Trejo, who takes the battle part a bit too seriously. Today we will be pairing moly, taco, traditional Latin meal. Very, very delicious. Probably better than anything in sweet side. In the episode in which Joe the legal weasel make Scooter preview the show to a focus group before uploading it in this case, that's actually not such a bad idea. Especially since that focus group turns out to be a pair of very familiar and very opinionated. Muppet characters. Enjoy the audience survey any worse than that guy. Oh, no. Our thoughts Exactly.

"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.

Abie Season 12 threes. It wasn't afraid to talk to kids about difficult topics. You may have seen this happening recently. In Sesame Street town halls like the A B. C's of covert 19 and coming together, standing up to racism. Ryan Dillon was one kid who loved watching Sesame Street. But if you told little kid Ryan Dillon that one day he'd end up inside of his TV as the puppeteer behind Elmo. Well, I don't think he'd believe you like Man All Ryan Dillon brings Elmo alive as well as being the current puppeteer. He is also Elmo's voice. I spoke with Ryan last fall when Sesame Street turned 50 and we started by taking a trip. Back in time to win Elmo first got really popular. This year's toy story, A red furry doll giggles a lot tickle me Elmo is the hottest thing this Christmas sold out of stores everywhere. No wonder he's laughing. All the way to the bank. Because North America has been gripped by Tickle me Elmo hysteria. I just fun, right? I find that so funny. He is laughing all the way to the bank. How are you? By the way, Thanks. Thanks for making the time. I'm good. Thanks. Thank you for having me s O. That's from 1996 or the height of tickle Me Elmo mania in Canada in the U. S, because he would have been around eight years old at the time. Yeah, Yeah, I guess so. I definitely remember the Krays. And thinking It was a little crazy at the time. I mean, never never had in the world of sesame Had that kind of thing happened. And what was just what was your relationship with Elmo Lake at the time. I, You know, for me As a kid, I absorbed any any Jim Henson content. That was my go to Guy loved Sesame Street. I love the Muppet Show Fraggle Rock, Anything with that type of puppetry style. I was really fascinated with Ondas much as I enjoyed almost I kind of enjoyed everybody on the show. I loved Grover. I loved Ernie and Bert and some of the crazier characters too. So I think, you know, I was just happy that that sesame was still relevant and continues to be relevant on through all the change. I mean, we've been A lot of us were fans of Jim Henson the same way you know, when we were kids, the fans of the Muppet Show a big fancy Sesame Street. But not all of us end up getting to work for them. Do you remember a moment watching Sesame or the Muppets? When you something kind of clicked like, Oh, this is what I want to do with my life. I do There were there were a handful of those moments, but the one that stands out to me very clearly was Jim Henson was very generous and showing sort of the behind the scenes aspect of the show. Hey, never felt the need to hide that. In fact, we still feel today that it enhances the magic of the puppetry that you see how it's done on so I'll never forget there was a special where Jim You see, it's a tight shot of Kermit in a bunch of the other Muppet characters, and you just hear an off screen. Kermit like voice saying, OK, now we're going to pull back and we're going to see what happens behind the scenes. And they pull the camera back and you see Jim Henson and Frank Oz and all of these Fran Brill all these legendary performers with their characters working in a sound stage on a blue screen, the set went away. You just saw a giant blue screen and I thought, I don't know what that is, but I have to be a part of that. Sesame Street is celebrating its 50th year this week. I'm excited to talk to you about its legacy, because, as opposed to one of the founders, I've got to speak to Frank. I was not that long ago, but you went to someone who went from being a fan. Two embodying pretty much the face of the franchise. I want to play you a clip. Here. Take a listen. Oh, The candy man on that Sammy Davis Jr sing in the candy man.

Go get him getting CARBONARA. And you know Lay now being forced to say those words that she's never been able to say out loud before we get that iconic you his response which was supposed to be more heartfelt. And here's Barbara like dude. This is so not like of not so this is not what Han West say to change that and change it to the. I know which worked well because one it makes more sense. It sounds like something. Han would say in to it. Left it enough that have Harrison had not come back right. Yeah it just would have left it at that. So because what are you supposed to say before would imply that he was coming back and at that point they didn't know if he was coming back. Not Yeah but you know we. We'VE GOT THAT GROUP. And then you've got luke who is continuing on his hero's journey and it's his relationship with the force you know. He needs to be trained. Ob One is dead so he can't train them he can still communicate with them as we learn and and see but he he's not capable training him so he has to data and meet this great. Jedi master. Yoda who is a little troll away? Michael likes to Troll troll who he really entering gets there. Yes and that's I got page book. It will yes and Iota with the givers. Dick's okay. You've lost your manners since he council days there. That's what living in self-isolation we'll do. I guess I will say this I. Iota has been my favorite favorite stories. I Love obi-wan-kenobi. Lovely lay I love Han Solo. I I When it com push comes to shove if I have to say you my favorite star wars characters. It's Yoda just hands down and not because he's the wise jet I master. That's part of it. But my favorite part is that first scene where he shows up. And he is rummaging in Luke's Cam you know how you know. How do you get that? Oh big eating food of this takes inviting just at least it's like you don't need all this you don't need all this and I saw the movie. I knew it with Iota is I I I knew. Basically I knew the details of the smoothest. The big picture details the story but just actually seeing Yoda from the beginning from the first. And I'm like I love this guy and we a little more of that cheeky nece throughout the rest of the movie and and in return Jay and it really wasn't a whole lot of that in the prequels which made no I just. I loved his little. That wise. Old Iota thing. You know. He's ease this wise master. He knows everything he's also he's a trill like like he said you're just you're adorable and I love you and I will follow. I would follow you to the ends of the Earth or the end of the galaxy or whatever you're amazing and I will bring give me all the iota. He's he's my favorite. And it's it's mostly because of that. I little scene but in Yoda as like. Yeah as we were saying you know. He's a. He's a practical effect. He's he's a puppet he's actually there. I mean they had to fill they had to create the Dagoba set Like three or four feet taller than the normally would so that there was room for frank and the other puppeteers underneath Just like if you've ever seen anything behind the scenes with any of the any of the muppets that's essentially what it is. Is You know the sets are filled filmed with like dead space underneath for the puppeteers depending on the puppet What's what's funny is I I read that. that Mark Hamill was given near piece so that he could hear Frank's voice Because obviously he's three feet below him so even though he's doing the voice. Yeah and then you can't necessarily here at the same as it is right in front of him Which is also common practice when when working with puppets and stuff but Every now and then Kirschner when giving direction as the director would speak to the Yoda puppet instead of Frank Oz and then Frank Oz. It'd be like Do Down here. Tell me to do something you look at me down here. Don't speak to the voice but.

"Okay we're back and we're still in the eighties. That's right and you were talking about other TV As we said the man loved television in filmmaking and so he got away from the muppets puppets every now and then Collaborated with Raymond. Scott who was an electronic pioneer actually on shorts called ripples in wheels that go You did that for the Montreal. Expo in sixty seven right and I know we're jumping around in time but we're just trying to paint the full picture here not going necessarily in order and then he also did. This cool thing called the floating face. Which was a sketch on the tonight? Show the Mike Douglas. Show in the sixties Which I did you see any of that a little bit. There's a little weird It was like two eyes and a mouth and there were like these invisible wires and background images and it was it was definitely a little more on that. Surreal tip the Hinson surreal tip. Yeah not kid oriented necessarily but he got to the movies with the muppet movie which is a big hit. It still holds up man. It's still so great. If you WANNA know more about that moving into some of the cool facts from it go again. Listen to the muppet episode. Yeah as a matter of fact pause. This goes into the muppet episode. And then come back to this one. Yeah probably enhance your experience. Agreed or listen to both at the same time But he followed the muppet an one thousand nine hundred two. He made the dark crystal. Yeah which was Puppets and it was based on Some drawings by fantasy artists Brian froude and there were no humans it was all puppets and I don't think it holds up as well but it still looks pretty good. Well Yeah I think it actually is probably better receive now than it was originally. Yeah I think critics appreciated it but it didn't do so well at the box office but now it's become a cult classic for sure. Yeah and one of the reasons why it didn't do that well at the box office because audiences didn't quite know what to make of it they heard Frank Oz co-directed it right Jim Henson puppets and they think they win. Expecting the muppet movie. This is nine hundred. Eighty two and the they got the dark crystal instead with really dark. The lot of the theme is good versus evil. And it's the evil in it is really really evil and the stuff that happens to some of the puppets is including really cute. Puppets yeah is really horrifying and I read this awesome quote by frank and basically he says like Jim thought it was okay to scare kids. As matter of fact he thought it wasn't healthy for kids to never be scared. He purposely was trying to scare kids. And he he. He wanted to take the tradition back to Grimm fairy tales which are very very dark affects point. That's what he was going forward the dark crystal. Yeah I think it was ahead of. Its time for sure if you look at some of these movies today. I think that dark crystal was a precursor. A lot of those Then he went onto make the movie the labyrinth with Bowie Right. Yeah David Bowie and very cruise young Jennifer Connelly now. That was legend okay. Good movie But this was written by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame and then written a bunch by a bunch of other people including executive producer. George Lucas Labyrinth was okay. Not Bad again. Not a huge hit For Hinson though as far as movies go but he was still out there. Exploring these cool fantastical worlds fantasy worlds and he still had a lot of credit even in the late eighties. If you think about his heyday was the late seventies early eighties with the muppet. Show the muppet movie s and then after that. It was like yeah. I'll try this with Jim. Henson I'll try this with Jim Henson. And even even still he had like a he was on a pretty great streak and at the end of the ADC had to TV shows on the Jim. Henson hour and storytelling storyteller. Yeah the Jim Henson Hour. He's always pushing the boundaries. A storyteller looking back now are. I'm sorry Jim Hinson. Our looking back was really different from what you were getting time because it was. It was all over the map. Certain shows that were like you know. Four or five sketches in one and then. Three of the episodes were full on our little mini movies. Really from yeah from beginning Louis. Yeah that's a good point actually. One of the little mini movies was called dog city which was great. It was narrated by Ralph and it was. I remember watching this. It was like a a film nor gangster thing you puppet dogs. Yeah and the main character issue was The Guy who did elmo Kevin Clash did The character of ACU and that was fantastic. I think dogs city went on to be a TV show. And its own right to okay for a little while but it was really good. I mean it's total like gangster crime film noir. But it's you know Ralph the Dog Right Gang I love. It's really cool the storyteller I hadn't seen before I was. I guess aware of but I don't know why wasn't watching it because it would have been like right there for me. Yeah I would have been twelve in nineteen eighty eight but I watched today and it was really good. It's like human puppet interaction. Yeah which is. It's just seamless like there's one of the things from studying this that I've realized that we take for granted and expect our puppet human interactions to be so seemless that we don't even realize they were looking at puppets and the reason why we expect that is because of Jim Henson and the people he worked within an inspired to work so hard at creating that illusion we had the illusion that these are living breathing. Things he would go. I remember Kermit as guests on talk shows Right Jim. Henson he would go out. I mean he did those appearances as well but kermit the frog would be a guest tonight show Johnny Carson or host or guest tonight. Show Larry King. Yeah and it was all a part of this goal of making these real people. Write a real living things not people. Yeah apparently somebody who is working with the Jim. Henson was the director of the muppet show would be giving Jim Notes on Kermit and Jim would just respond like let Kermit respond. That was pre end. The director said eventually you're sitting that you turned address. Kermit like he just force you and interacting with the public even I during a note session. Yeah and probably without feeling silly or stupid or anything you know probably seem like a totally normal thing to do eventually forced you to do He also pioneered the Hinson Performance Control System and Wanted Academy award for that and that was a remote control system that Helped puppeteers out. So he he was always pushing technical Visual I'm stylistic thematic boundaries. As far as he could and they didn't always work. You know the movies weren't aside from the muppet movie. They weren't the biggest hits the TV show a couple of you know. Neither one of those lasted very long. But I think he was just intent on doing something different. Yeah he and he did and he died. In Ninety of Daf infection organ failure brought on by a staph infection. Did you know that yet? I think pneumonia had something to do with it too. Didn't it not that I saw? I saw organ failure caused by Group. A strep infection. I'm sorry.

"The way the world works so should be that shock but Frank oz thing up next on the fan I Frank Hey Chris how you doing good like my first time calling if you will yeah I just want to tell you that I like I love your work thank you I like that you're AG and I'll WFAN give you some more air time because you are I know I just like your style okay let me start off with that buying this I I go back to I am is from day one and I remember my wife and I she was my weight and we went to one of his stand up shows up here in Westchester and man he was just wonderful we got we actually we got in line we got a chance that we stood in line at the end of the show we got to meet him and everything and he was just you know he was just he was the man he was the guy's an icon like I said and and yeah I'm just so so so sorry that he's gone yeah and I think the Frank I appreciate your calling and I think that you know that it does then again it's a choice I mean it's a choice with everybody it's a choice on how you remember everybody it's what we go through all the time and now as I mentioned at the top and I thought it's worth mentioning there's no way for anyone to hide you know every negative thing you've done or will do or might do has a chance of coming out you can get burned by an old girlfriend or boyfriend they can have pictures of you that they can put on the internet they can take you apart any way they want legitimately or illegitimately so as you grow older now as you deal with more famous people that come and go and have their qualities and their negatives just like everybody else you're going to have to make your own decision on all these people because it won't be like the old days where you take Mickey mantle or Ted Williams and your poor mom a pedestal and nothing could not come off because no information is going to come there's no new information on Ben Franklin okay Thomas Edison the great inventors and politicians of all time there's no information there's no new nothing new coming out on Jackie Robinson Jesse Owens so they're safe nobody today is safe Tom Brady is not safe okay so those days are gone now and we all live in a risky environment in which are our biggest negatives are the worst things about us or even things that are not true about us can be calm not only public but accepted and that's just reality today John in west Milford up next on the fan I John hi John by John Eddie in Rockland up next on the fan what's up buddy a great big fan one arm is I remember driving with my father in the car and he would listen are you miss and then I would help lead the station down because stern was coming on and we'd argue back and forth but I understood I like I like I use I like that he had that quick anger I like the dead he was he when he wore his wife on his sleeve he didn't hide anything and that's what I liked about the guy that he was edgy and a little controversial yeah I think so too and I also think the the ringleader aspect at least from a radio standpoint of the person that loves radio like I do you couldn't underestimate how great he was and running the circus that is a morning show right the only thing I regret is that I wanted him and started to sit down for one interview and just passed as well that would be great that would be great you're absolutely right I got one football question okay go ahead okay I love the host the other day we got into an argument about cattlemen okay and I said rather would you rather have Jones and Barkley over Josh I wanted Josh Allen in the drive to trade down when they got Barkley Allen Josh Jacobs the running back that the raven stoked and you would have picked up two or three extra picks in the top fifty that you would use on offense of line so you would you got five twenty years over Barkley in Jones you what about Alan Johnson Jacobs and three potential top fifty offense of wine guys which which package would you have talked I was taking your package thanks thanks Chris I love yeah so there you go I I I understand that and again Barkley is such a good player in such a good representative and such a good giant and seemingly such a good citizen that it is hard to second guess Barclays pick it just is what the position the durability of that position the average length of difference making of that position right how long does your starting running back last as a difference maker as they're hard to beat because of him not very long so what you give up there in flash and we've already now had two years of se Kwan when you give up there in the flash on the instant success that is likely to have early in his career and that's a Kwan had last year and didn't have this year is balanced by the fact that the career is so short and I wanna Jones I think Jones is going to be fine and and I do think that he'll figure out how to hold on to the ball better and both teams both these teams of the two young quarterbacks are unhappy with their offense of want so without those offensive lines you're a value waiting your quarterbacks on in less than ideal conditions you know I mean no doubt about it Ellis you up seven nothing they get the ball back quickly here in the first quarter so it looks like what we all feared is at least at the beginning of the game coming to fruition and that is that Osama can't play with Ellis you and that was the thought coming in by a lot of people including me and so far through four minutes of playing there is no indication that that's not true let's go to Sean in queens up next on the fan hi John very personal song not that I just saw you all offers a full disclaimer Mr Geisel recipes but enough about I'm going to talk a little net baseball with your clothes okay first on our I'm speaking with your wall art which is you order your message on your usual been on the stand and while I don't always agree with you I fully respect your opinion every time so I just wanted to get your opinion on what you're saying Brody has don't you know what what your grades so far and you obviously we're not done yet but I I really wanted your body on a credit I think are you don't quietly when I'm making the crazy splashing moves are you totally revamped the middle of the release you all don't do it you got a break on the hold twenty oz and bank loans are the two guys that we have you know we'll go beyond what they want we'll be more years and hopefully resulting in back but would give you additional arm of Walker and you did you know I honestly believe gears well come back so what better than he did let you know you will have the games were in the playoffs Chris you know I mean that's kind of a fact but only I think that he's gone they're still really most particle let you know and I really respect that as a former agent I think he went about destroyed what he didn't go crazy spending on the Josh reader deals and giveaways the farms and you sign the chances for really reasonable amount of money and if if that one is healthy we all know how good this guy is for order I will start by told a million miles an hour and you know obviously also is an issue with every player on our team that's been or change the last you know to talk to the lab what that being said I really we are we really love the direction that we're in with this with the addition of the whole process because I hope you enjoy it D. gentle chore out there and put together contribute more to be said last year and I love you today actually longer I don't want to go anywhere but he said he was running down he was running down a little bit yeah and he was a little tired so if you put your hand and such but this gentleman about three hundred fifty to four hundred about each as much as you and that that can be really really dangerous line of work protection staff so I'm always warm winter happy new year and I would love to hear your response John for sure to check in and and we appreciate your call I will say that I'm still very concerned about who else will catch I'm still very concerned about center field I still want to know what dom Smith's role is I the M. confident but not over confident that was already old and the results that we saw in the last couple of months defensively will carry into this season I think you put up with the lack of range at second base and you hope that Michael Conforto was Michael Conforto the one that you thank you candy and I do put a lot on his plate you don't have a DH over their soul so you have eight guys right I mean this is simple math you have eight guys because you're not gonna count the pitcher even though he has the bat you have eight guys what does that mean it means that each player that plays in your line up is twelve and a half percent of your offense you try is twelve and a half percent of your office and this is why the NBA is built on stars because these guys twenty percent I just five guys five times twenty laundered so each of five guys on the floor it's got represents twenty percent pretty important so in baseball in the National League each guy represents twelve and a half percent so if two guys or poor if two guys aren't very good that means twenty five percent of your offense is poor that's a lot if you're trying to contend with Atlanta and Washington and perhaps Philadelphia that's a lot so you can't afford Michael Conforto to be average actually if memo was average and Rosario ostensibly is average and Alonso comes back to earth a little bit you know you you just you're asking too much and you don't know yet about center field you really need Michael Conforto to be a good player I don't know how they win if Michael Conforto is not a really good player they have to get the same or more from Alonzo in big meal and surprising performances elsewhere the line up never would have to be real consistent you know etcetera etcetera so as much as we like to make predictions I think Conforto makes it more difficult to to gauge the Mets offense of Lee I don't know his yet still don't know who he is let's go to Liam in Staten Island highly I'm a great arm I just want to get your opinion on the matter and new manager Carlos Beltran and I think you can handle the the new found that that the med lab in the outfield and with the starting pitching and reports solid Michael Walker what you worry about the outfield in terms of you talk about the new found depth what what are you talking about their JD Davis calling and I know it does but it obviously coming back this year I'd like for him demo in Florida yeah all right that's fair that's for question if if both it's Judy Davis stays and plays and I I do expect to play outfield so I think you're right about that and and obviously says but this is going to have some time out there as well if in fact his own read on his health is accurate I am confident the Carlos Beltran will do a good job I hope he has thick skin I hope he understands and you should what it is like to be in New York manager I hope he understands that ten days positive or negative doesn't make a season in other just a lot to take in and in today's baseball more than ever you're making more pitching changes than you've ever made before and some might still work out and some nights they won't and as a manager you gotta understand that you are not going to hit you're not going to bat anywhere near a thousand with your pitching changes when you're making for a night six nights a week twenty four a week and more than a hundred pitching changes every month for six.

"Tools Winifred Sam Jackson. It's such a the film is like vignettes of different stories, but it's all them boiled and crime and about a whole mobster, boss and everything like that. And man, I remember watching that movie in the theater when it came out in nineteen and that was just like what is this? You know, especially during the. The rape sequence with Wallace the gangsters like, okay? But it's with all the craziness the dialogue is so rich and the soundtrack is just killer. So I love Pulp Fiction soundtrack second-to-none for sure. But I feel like the the manipulation of the timeline is a little excessive. I mean, it's all over the place for the time. I'd never seen anything like that. It was so cool. You know, everyone thinks who they brought John Travolta back till I fo- you just have to kind of. It's a puzzle have to put the pieces together. I think I remember hearing Quentin Tarantino saying he had so many storylines because he wasn't sure if he'd ever be able to make another film, right? So he put everything into Pulp Fiction. It is like four stories or that's what. Yeah, absolutely story. That's what's crazy about that film. You you forget that he was generally unknown Directa Travolta, hadn't had a huge hit in a while those acting the baby move, right? He was making the look who's talking movies, which are actually quite successful. Exactly. But you know, he wasn't an list, and the film was quite independent, and then it just pro count. And now it's on like practically every top ten movies of all time list and well-deserved. So that's Pulp Fiction for me. All right. My friend me. Yeah. I've got a cheated here. I got two entries together because I always think of these two films together. Okay. Released in two thousand one once called the score and the other is heist. So the score is with mom, Brandon. The scores Brad with no Edward Norton, three generations of great had never seen it. I don't know. Why kind came to winter? What's weird is I have a mental image picture of the cover? Yeah. And the cost is fantastic. But for some. Reason escaped me you love to host from shot in Montreal. Okay. The there's a jeweled sceptre that's been smuggled in the leg of piano that has been discovered and the customs house so Norton pretends to be impaired. I laugh Edmundo's basically undercover as a custodian figuring out how to steal it. And he gets teamed up Marlon Brando is kind of the fixer right? Who's must be like big Mullen, Brandon or as the orchestrating orchestrating the highest Robert deniro is a safe, man. And fascinating character owns a jazz club in the film. And you know, all this great backdrop, you don't see Montreal enough might in films beautiful city. And so there's crosses and double crosses and tricks and things, and and it's it's a fantastic film. It was by Frank Oz. Who was the voice of miss piggy? Didn't Yoder as well. Yeah. Yeah. He was Yoda Frank Oz directed this was this escaping Marlon Brando. Used to take direction from miss piggy? Oh god. So interesting right flash. Yeah. And the parallel movie to me for me is heist. What Ty Tyson David Mamat film with gene? Hackman Delroy Lindo, Rebecca Pidgeon, great cost. Oh, yeah. Fantastic. And David Mamat is so fantastic. As you know, you just talked about Pulp Fiction the dialogue. He's a writer screenplay right through those very rich dialogue known as a playwright in Chicago right for forty years or fifty years now, but has incredibly stylized Glengarry Glen Ross, I love that low. He has a movie called house of games with almost made my list. Okay. And Spanish prisoner with Colin. Scott yet Collins earn what's his New Jersey? Scott, son. Oh, I didn't know enough. The only one I've seen is going glory gun. ABC's always be close. Right. That's great. You know? So, you know, this has this great stylized language, which is so complementary to this John Roe because you know, it's heightened. The whole like sensory experiences heightened in heist film, right crime film, film, and it works really well a complimentary, but they came out at the same time. You know, how there's like what neck aid two thousand one two thousand one. Yeah. So you know, that you always have to volcano movies come out at the same time jazz for Columbus. So bizarre do that studios to jungle book movie I don't get. want to get with potently..
