Sad. I get baked and watch a good hour of Sesame Street every day. Not any of the new stuff, cause it's pansy as fark, but 70's, early 80's Sesame Street is awesome.

Whenever I see puppeteers at work I wince, thinking of all that crouching and/or angling their bodies into uncomfortable positions. That must take a toll on a person's body over years.

Most of the sets for Sesame Street are jacked up five feet from the floor. I helps avoid so much bending over. It's also the reason the scenery shop paints things upside down. So you don't have to do everything with a ladder.

Yeah, but whenever you see photos or footage of the Sesame Street guests in outtakes (like the one you posted) they always look ridiculously happy. The benefit of working with happy people all the time would balance out all the bending and crouching, I'll bet.

My brother just turned 40 and I made CD cover that said "40...40 years...ah ah ah" with a pic of the Count.

This seems an appropriate tribute, just wish there was video available with both the audio and the video of the original.

And I worry most about Carrol Spinney, since he's the oldest left working, IIRC.
