Remembering Faz Fazakas

It was reported earlier this week that legendary tech-wizard and puppet builder Faz Fazakas has passed away at the age of 95.

Faz joined the Muppet team in 1970 during the filming of Tales from Muppetland specials. In the many years since then, he's been responsible for most of the incredible special effects you've seen on-screen.
Some of his most famous work includes the eye mechanism for Sweetums and Big Bird, and the rod and cable techniques used for the Doozers.

Goodbye to one of the most important men in Muppet history. A true unsung Muppet hero.
