    I looked but didn't see this posted anywhere. In 1984-85, Richard Hunt took over the Elmo character from Brian Muehl. I had always wondered what the Richard Hunt Elmo sounded like, and if he appeared in any street scenes or was actually referred to as "Elmo".

    All that is answered in this video clip:

    It shows a few street scenes with Elmo interacting with Bob, kids and David. He sounds a lot like the two-headed monster.

    This clip apparently comes from a documentary called "Being Elmo", and is narrated by Whoopi Goldberg. I had never seen or heard of the documentary before and don't know anything else about it. Thought you all might find this interesting.

    I thought it was funny how Elmo had talked like a caveman, and he really did sound like the 2 headed monster! HILARIOUS!

    When I first saw the thread title I had visions of Elmo speaking with a pompous Don-Music like voice (chuckle). But Elmo sounding like the two-headed monster was just as good! Thanks for sharing...
