People are always asking me who I play on Sesame Street. They're hoping I say Oscar or Ernie, or something. The truth is, there aren't many lead characters on Sesame, but there are a gazillion one-shot supporting characters and puppets with no names who appear on the show. That's the kind of character I puppeteer, like the cow pictured above. I love the foam animals on Sesame, like the cows, horses, and pigs -- they're brilliantly simple, and owe their design mostly to the former head of the Sesame Muppet workshop, Caroly Wilcox.
