What I've Learned from the Muppets

I'm a puppeteer. I love performing with puppets and I love getting to teach others about puppets. So much of what I've learned about puppetry comes from watching other performers, especially the Muppets. The Muppets were a huge part of my childhood. From "Sesame Street" to "The Muppet Show" to "Fraggle Rock," I love them all!

I decided it might be fun to do some articles where we analyze some classic Muppet clips to see why these performances are such great examples of puppetry techniques. I hope all the puppet teams out there will find these helpful and I encourage all of you to pick up the DVD's I refer to so you can get the full picture.
