Robbie Knott, who worked on special effects for such films as The Muppet MovieField of Dreams and The Nutty Professor remake before a scuba-diving accident ended his career, has died. He was 73.

Knott died June 29 in Portland, Oregon, his son, Brian, told The Hollywood Reporter. His death was due to complications from the accident that occurred in 2006 during a visit to Micronesia, when Knott got the bends and became paralyzed from the waist down, he said. 

Knott helped build the giant Animal puppet with a 15-foot head that came crashing through a roof after accidentally ingesting one of Dr. Bunsen's "insta-grow" pills in The Muppet Movie (1979).

"We were asked to provide very top-budget film-type gags, with no time to do them. But it was fun."
