This is obviously inspired by last week's "vonderful" Sesame Street episode paying homage to the indefectible Jerry Nelson. In watching the episode’s street story (which was finally filmed in December of 2012), it felt bittersweet to be hearing Jerry and Kevin Clash voicing their characters (through prerecorded tracks); which implies (to me, at least) that there was a lot planned in advance before the show was shot. At any rate, it is amazing knowing that they were both involved with this special episode in some way in spite of recent events.
this is a wonderful piece.
I use to have "Elmo says boo" on video as a kid and the Count was my favourite sesame street character. It is so tragic that Jerry Nelson passed away. he was a talented Muppeteer.
