Aside from the Muppeteers Gonzo14 listed, what about Richard Hunt? From all the photographs I've seen, his hair was never long. Sure it was curly, and it looked like he had a bunch of it in his younger years (*cringes* that probably deserved a "your face."), but it was never long.

Well, yeah, I know Jerry and Frank don't have long hair, but I didn't mention them because I was trying to be nice :smile:

As for Dave, Brian, and Carroll Spinney, I've seen plenty of pics with them in long hair. But you're right, some Muppeteers don't have long hair. Eric Jacobson does though, right?

Anyway, I did a little experiment today and got my hair cut. Good News! I don't feel any less a puppeteer.

Wait til your hair falls OUT...you'll see, hair does NOT make the puppeteer. But strong arm, shoulder, and back muscles sure do help.

Nice point, Foz.

I've never had looooooong hair, but it does get pretty bad if it's not cut all the time. Right now my hair looks like if Richard Hunt were to put gel in his hair (Richard Hunt a few years before his death, that is) I have pretty curly hair, not as curly. At least I'm not balding.:big_grin:

Nah, bald's cool. My best friend is getting there. Not totally, but he's got quite the recieting hair line. I keep telling him to just shave it all off! He's my right hand man!:big_grin: (quite literally so. He plays my one character's right hand.:big_grin: )

It's good to have the guy doing the right hand of your character to be a really close friend. After long hours in the sun (or freezing cold) you need a good friend! Plus, I'm sure he doesn't apreciate having a smelly armpit stuck in his face all day!!!!:eek:

It makes it easier for us to wear a puppet on our heads...
