Frank Oz, who helped create and perform the Muppet characters of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Sam Eagle and more, has now chimed in to explain why he believed The Muppets failed. Hit the jump to read his comments.

We already know that the second half of the fourth season of The Goldbergs will feature an episode dedicated entirely to The Karate Kid, but since nostalgia for the 1980s is the show’s modus operandi, that won’t be the only movie from that decade prominently featured later this season.
The Goldbergs will have an episode dedicated to the excitement of the release of Batman, the 1989 film directed by Tim Burton that had audiences going crazy to see the Dark Knight on the big screen for the first time in decades. In addition, that episode will be dedicated by Bat-fan, comic book writer, and filmmaker Kevin Smith.
