Jerry Nelson: Thank You and Godspeed.


As of this morning, many of my, and your, childhood friends are now silent. Jerry Nelson was a puppeteer who worked on Sesame Street and the Muppet Show.

His characters included: Mr. Snuffleupagus; Sully and Biff, Sherlock Hemlock, The Amazing Mumford, Harry Monster; Count von Count; Sgt. Floyd Pepper (bassist for the Electric Mayhem); Dr. Julius Strangepork; Lew Zealand; Camilla the Chicken and many, many more.

Thank you for all your work, Mr. Nelson. Your characters where considered friends by children around the world. This work will never be forgotten.
