Rick Lyon and Big Bird
One of the best things about being a puppeteer on "Sesame Street" (besides hanging out with Big Bird!) is the variety of characters you get to play. Monsters, grouches, animals, letters, vegetables -- just about anything goes. Sometimes one of the lead puppeteers isn't available or is already doing one of their characters in a scene, so you puppeteer another one of their lead characters. Since those are sort of special moments, that's mostly what I've got photos of. I've put a few here for you to check out.
