Muppet Monday: The Man Behind the Fur

Quick one today!  Check out a featurette about Being Elmo, an upcoming documentary about Kevin Clash, better known as the puppeteer behind the little red Muppet monster (also known as the voice of Splinter in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films).  As much as we resent Elmo for obscuring the other Muppets on Sesame Street (and, to some extent, watering down the show’s material), we most certainly respect Clash’s body of work.

And we also respect the filmmakers for resisting the urge to title their documentary Tickle Me: The Kevin Clash Story.
