It took me till I was about nine to figure out there were pupeteers under the puppets. I honestly thought there were Fraggles and Gorgs and Doozers under my house until I was about 12. I didn't know who played who until maybe this year. I was so caught up in who they were for me as a child. However, since I really started moving on from my scaring childhood experience I can honestly say it was Richard's characters that got me there. Beaker who just made me giggle. Janice who was just like rully there fer me like fer sure. Scooter just kind of embodies me. I'm always running around trying to help people trying to keep a happy face and keep things as smooth and least crazy as possible by getting my homework done. Running around my house with a little note pad "You need what? Okay, *writes* needs cereal, and you need *writes* help with Math test tomorrow. I'll quiz you. And Romeo and Juliet thursday? Lets act it out right now." It's litterally what I do. So, to say I didn't know him until I was 16. Untrue, I knew him as a three year old kid when I started experiementing with flavors of pop corn.I remember when I first learned about who Richard was, and then later heard this verse in "Saying Goodbye." For the first time I didn't just hear it as Scooter singing, I realized there was a person behind the performance. It was quite an amazing moment.
