Okay – THIS cracks me UP! LOL

This man does NOT look like anyone I could have imagined being Elmo’s voice and puppeteer.

  1. OMG–Wassabi! I rolled. He rocks! I think he’s funnier as Elmo 🙂

    DC 🙂

  2. This is cool! I had absolutely not idea.

  3. Fascinating! Thanks for sharing it. I used to work similar puppets back in high school – you develop extremely strong thumbs because that’s basically all that moves the mouth – the other four fingers remain perfectly still except for tilting the head from side to side.

    The most fun were the puppets that used human hands – one person worked the head and the other stood (or knelt) in front with gloves on that attached to the body. From the audience it looked like one person, but behind the curtain there were two people doing what ammounted to a carefully choreographed dance! 🙂 Picture 8 puppets, 16 puppeteers, all dancing in a 15-square-foot area behind the curtain. Controlled chaos! LOL

  4. Wow! I really didn’t give much thought to the people behind the characters. This provided a whole new perspective. Thanks for sharing, Erin!

    Hope you’re doing well:)
