    He also performs Clifford and does Sam the Eagle in It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie.

    And while we're at it he performs Splinter in the first two Ninja Turtles movies and the Baby on Dinosaurs. :D

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what he'll be doing. I've asked around, but no one knows for sure. I guess it will be a surprise for all of us.

    I just saw a preview for Tuesday's Oprah episode. It is going to be a Hurricane Katrina-themed show. The preview shows Anderson Cooper and Lisa Ling in New Orleans. Although they do not show Kevin in the preview, I have a feeling he will be on for a few minutes to talk about how some of Sesame's cast visited kids in schools and shelters in New Orleans. Definitely a moving story and one everyone should hear.

    I found this on the web dated Feb. 1, 2006.

    "The topic of the show was “Faces behind big names,” and the guests included clothing designer Marc Jacobs, puppeteer Kevin Clash (who does the voice and movements for “Elmo” on Sesame Street), the family behind Crayola crayons, and the daughter of “Barbie” inventor Ruth Handler (whose name is Barbara)."

    No mention if that show topic has aired already or not.

    I wish it could have been the entire cast. Like a little tiny MuppetFest. But at least they got Kevin. That's good. :D

    Just to clear things up a little: I received official information through Sesame Workshop that Kevin (and Elmo) will be appearing today on Oprah. On Oprah's website, and according to previews on the show, today's episode is Hurricane Katrina-themed. As I said before, Kevin and part of the cast visited New Orleans after the hurricane, so he may appear because of that. As for what OverUnder said, maybe he won't be on tomorrow and that episode will be airing later in the season. Perhaps SW has their information wrong. I know I'll be crossing my fingers for an appearance tomorrow. I'll let you know if I hear anything early in the day.

    well I hope some one finds out exactly when Kevin is on because I dislike Oprahs' shows quite a bit.....and I'm not going to watch it every day just so I can see mr. Elmo :grouchy:

    I agree with JimHensonHour. It's quite an odd show, and I don't normally watch it myself. I really hope he's on today, and we didn't miss it. :)

    I just received word that Kevin's appearance has been changed to Monday, the 27th. Sorry for the confusion.
