Muppets or Sesame Street, the two quintessential picks of any young kids childhood. Some liked one or the other, heck maybe you were super excited about puppets and liked both. Regardless of your stuffed puppet allegiance, there is no denying that you have experienced the joy of watching puppets come to life on the television screen. They acted as our after school teachers, our friends, and babysitters even for lazy parents, but there was something magical to watching inanimate objects come to life. Often times, as kids mainly, we don’t understand that there is a lot of love and passion into breathing life into those characters we come to grow up with. Also is would be haunting to realize that Elmo is being controlled by some unknown guy with his hand up the ass of the puppet. Being Elmo isn’t just about knowing the man behind the face of the puppet, but it’s a look into this theatrical world that works to bring to life the iconic puppets of our childhood.
