Today's Muppet performer: Dave Goelz.
Dave Goelz began his work for the Muppets in 1973 as a puppet builder, but over time, he began to puppeteer exclusively. Although he has operated a few minor characters on Sesame Street, he's primarily known for his work with the Muppets, performing such characters as Gonzo, Bunsen, Zoot, and Beauregard. He performs those characters to this day. He also took over the role of Waldorf after Jim Henson's death. Dave also performed Boober on Fraggle Rock and Figment in the "Journey to Imagination with Figment" attraction at EPCOT Center in Walt Disney World.
