—"Life’s like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending."
—"The most sophisticated people I know - inside they are all children."
—"When The Muppet Show ended, we all sat around and said, what kind of television show would we like to do. We felt the need these days are for some quality children’s programming."
—”I do remember doing shows strictly in black and white, too, so you’re right.”
—"I’ve never felt any sense of competition with anybody, and we’re all friends; we’re all good friends."
