    While fans are discussing Kevin Clash's resignation here, we wanted to have a positive and uplifting thread celebrating the 28 years of work Kevin Clash has contributed to Sesame Street, the Muppets and other Henson productions.

    Please post here with your favorite Kevin Clash video or memory in honor of the countless lives that Kevin has positively impacted.

    Some really nice personal apperances that Kevin made with Elmo. Kevin was so loving and dedicated to people.

    One of my favorite "Being Elmo" discussion panels. I love Elmo's (and Kevin's) reaction to a question about Richard Hunt!

    I just got the DVD of the actual special titled "Put Down the Duckie" in the mail today coincidentally enough. Makes it a lot more bittersweet considering we won't have anymore Hoots for a while.

    I'm going to miss Kevin, what a great talented funny Muppeteer he was :)

    Just in case no one has ever seen this, this is Kevin goofing around at his best behind the scenes. And pestering of Kirk Thatcher who I think tells Kevin to shut up when he's having so much fun messing around with Baby Sinclair.lol

    Kevin with Jim, one of Jim's last tv apperances

    This one came to my mind recently. :)

    One of my top favorite moments from Kevin, and my favorite from Leon :) My Favorite Kevin Clash Character. It's a shame he didn't last after JHH and this Bill Cosby episode. Though I think he got recycled for a gag on the Larry King Show apperance in 1993 I think.

    I ran out of room on my first post, got a few more favorites I wanted to share.

    Also his blue Koosebanian Extreme, great hilarious voice! lol

    You might want to skip around for them, I thought I put the link for a specific time on these longer videos but I guess the form can't read the timed chapter youtube link. Sorry about that.

    He's even did some really cool vocals in this sort of recent one as well.

    I love to find some of his Harold Handupme segments but they don't seem to be on the internet, well the clips themselves aren't.

    I loved how Justin Bieber finally got a Muppet version of himself. lol I was watching some early Elmo clips on the Sesame Street Video Site. I think I liked that Elmo the best, to me that's when he was funny. I liked the one with him and Prairie Dawn in space.

    This one my Mom used to sing to me everytime we moved when I was a kid. She didn't know must of the lyrics. lol

    By the way, when did Kathryn Mullen work on Sesame?

    Hard to pick just one favorite moment of Kevin Clash. Every moment has been delightful. His talent will be missed. Kevin Clash has been around for alot of childhoods (including mine). Not just Sesame Street and The Muppets. But on the Great Space Coaster as well.

    Oh yeah, didn't Kevin perform that weird yellow orange Monster guy. What's his name? I remember seeing a clip of him popping balloons. I've seen clips of that show. Was the show popular or last long? It came before my time. lol I hear about The Great Space Coaster from time to time. That alien goat like host kind of reminded me of The Muppet Show newscaster for some reason.

    His name is Goriddle Gorilla and he is performed by Kevin Clash. He is from The Great Space Coaster, which ran on first-run syndication from 1981 to 1986.The "alien goat-like host" your talking about is Gary Gnu, who is performed by Jim Martin. Here are clips from The Great Space Coaster featuring Goriddle Gorilla.

    I think if Jarrod Boutcher Tried out for the voice of elmo he would make it

    Well, there really aren't ever any try outs. The original performer usually chooses the next performer themself. And remember, voice is only part of the performance. The character itself is what's more important.
