In 2011, the Blu-Ray edition of The Phantom Menace replaced the puppet Yoda with CGI to match the other prequel films.


Oz voiced the computer-generated Yoda in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005), supporting the transition of the character's rendering to digital.


Directed one Oscar nominated performance: Joan Cusack in In & Out (1997).


Has directed two of his Star Wars castmates in otherwise unrelated films: Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine/Darth Sidious) appeared in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) and Terence Stamp (Supreme Chancellor Valorum) appeared in Bowfinger (1999).


Collaborated five times with composer Miles Goodman: Little Shop of Horrors (1986), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988), What About Bob? (1991), HouseSitter (1992) and The Indian in the Cupboard (1995). However, Goodman's score to The Indian in the Cupboard (1995) became unused and replaced by a score composed by Randy Edelman.


He developed the character's trademark syntax, returning to voice and puppet the Jedi Master in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999).


He began a career of behind-the-camera puppet and live action filmmaking by co-directing The Dark Crystal (1982) with Henson.


George Lucas originally contacted Henson to play the part of Yoda in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), but he recommended Oz for the part instead.


Often works with Steve Martin (The Muppet Movie (1979), Little Shop of Horrors (1986), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988), HouseSitter (1992), Bowfinger (1999)).


The Muppet Show (1976) character "Fozzie Bear" is actually not named after Frank Oz, as is widely believed. "Fozzie Bear" is named after The Muppet Show (1976) builder Faz Fazakas.


He is one of the primary puppeteers responsible for the development of Jim Henson's Song of the Cloud Forest (1969) and The Muppet Show (1976) as well as over 75 other Muppet productions.


In 1963 he was studying journalism in California when he met Jim Henson who asked him to travel to New York for a 6 month try out with the Muppets. He's been associated with them ever since, bringing life to Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and many others.
