    How Sesame Street Puppetteers Control Their Puppets

    Just a little something off-beat and interesting I found.

    I love that this is all still being done as traditional puppeteering. They could have probably done CG, but the puppets were always part of the charm of sesame street. I grew up watching it, and it's nice to see that very little has changed there.

      Yeah! Though there's a bit too much Elmo on there these days but otherwise they've kept their charm.

      Now I'm remembering a videotape we had with various Sesame Street songs we had ages ago:



      Memories!

        I also seem to remember Big Bird being a lot poofier than he is now. Might just be my memory being faulty, though.

          That's actually pretty fascinating to see. And yeah, I agree that it was pretty cool that they kept the puppets. They're so much a part of the series that it wouldn't feel right if they were replaced with CGI, and I think the production team decided that as well.

            Heh, not to mention the price of switching to CGI. PBS is largely a charity-funded organization, after all.
