What is Frank Oz's net worth? Frank Oz is a true Hollywood Renaissance Man with a net worth of $20 million. His net worth has been accumulated over many years in the industries of TV and movies, working as a director, voice actor, puppeteer, and more. He is most famous for his contributions to the hugely successful Muppets franchise, having created and voiced characters such as Miss Piggie, Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster, Bert (of Bert & Ernie fame), and Grover. As if that weren't enough in the field of puppetry, Oz also operated and voiced the unfortunately no longer in operation (having been replaced by a completely CGI creation, also voiced by Oz) Yoda puppet in the massively popular Star Wars films. Oz has also made his mark as a director, having helmed movies like The Indian in the Cupboard and Bowfinger. His career as a director began in the mid-80s, when he co-directed Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal, a fantasy/adventure movie that featured the most advanced puppets ever seen on film. It remains one of the only movies to feature exclusively puppet actors and is considered by many to be Jim Henson's masterpiece. But it is a near certainty that none of it could have happened if it were not for the unique talents of Frank Oz.
Frank Oz (born Frank Richard Oznowicz; born May 25, 1944) is a film director, actor, voice actor and puppeteer who is known for creating and performing the characters Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear in The Muppet Show, as well as Cookie Monster, Bert and Grover in Sesame Street. His work as a film director includes 1986's Little Shop of Horrors remake and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He is also the operator and voice of Yoda in the Star Wars film series.
Oz was born in Hereford, England, the son of Frances (nee Ghevaert) and Isidore Oznowicz, both of whom were puppeteers. His parents moved to England after fighting the Nazis with the Dutch Brigades. Oz's Dutch/Polish father was Jewish and his Flemish mother was a lapsed Roman Catholic. Oz moved to Oakland, California, United States, with his parents when he was five years old. He attended Oakland Technical High School and Oakland City College. He worked for a time with the Vagabond Puppets, a production of the Oakland Recreation Department, where Lettie Connell was his mentor.
Oz is known for his work as a puppeteer, performing with Jim Henson's Muppets. His characters have included Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal, and Sam the Eagle on The Muppet Show, and Grover, Cookie Monster and Bert on Sesame Street, among many others.
In addition to performing a variety of characters, Oz has been one of the primary collaborators responsible for the development of the Muppets over the last 30 years. Oz has performed as a Muppeteer in over 75 movies including Labyrinth, video releases, and television specials, as well as countless other public appearances, episodes of Sesame Street, and other Jim Henson series. His puppetry work spans from 1963 to the present, though he has retired from the Muppets. His Muppets were taken over by Eric Jacobson and David Rudman, though Oz still performs his characters on occasion.
Oz is also known as the performer of Jedi Master Yoda from George Lucas' Star Wars series. Oz performed the voice
