Yoda, Grover is

Happened upon Star Wars: The Phantom Menace on TV while channel-flicking on Saturday night.

You know, Frank Oz did the voice for Yoda. He also did Grover from Sesame Street. Have a listen to Yoda, and you can tell it’s the same guy. Just that Yoda is a bit more mellow.

(When I pointed this out, I got complaints for destroying the fantasy. C’mon, you’ve got Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor and Natalie Portman and Samuel L Jackson running around in funny costumes, but Yoda=Grover somehow destroys the fantasy?!)

Saw bits of TPM too, but upon hearing Yoda speak I thought Miss Piggy was going to jump out.

ARGH! DANIEL! *heartbroken* It was bad enough that they turned him into a little ninja in the second installment. Yes, you have ruined the fantasy.
