Frank Oz is still with us, but he has largely retired, and Eric Jacobson has taken on Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Animal, and Sam the Eagle:

At 2001′s MuppetFest fan convention Jacobson made his Muppet debut secretly performing Miss Piggy welcoming the fans “live via satellite”. Jacobson made his first major Muppet production debut performing Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and Animal for 2002′s It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie.
