Jerry Nelson spent his career as invisible as Mr. Snuffleupagus, one of the characters this original Muppeteer brought to life on Sesame Street, but after spending forty-seven years behind over 1000 named Muppets, you undoubtedly know his work well.
Hired by Jim Henson in 1965, Nelson provided the puppeteering for Sherlock Hemlock, Herry Monster, Count von Count, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Robin the Frog, Camilla the Chicken, Gobo Fraggle, Pa Gorg, among many, many others.
