Anywho, a few years ago I went to my local library to check out some books on the Muppets/puppetry in general and I checked out a book on Carroll Spinney. Overall, it was a great book except for the fact that they kept on calling him Carroll Sweeney!
From the "Blarney Home Video" clip from Dinosaurs on YT...
"This is the voice of Ernie on Sesame Street"
Ugh, this has been discussed before. Steve Whitmire is a puppeteer, not just a voice actor.
That's a common misconception that, in a sense, you kind of have to give people the benefit of the doubt for . . . I mean, when you really stop and think about it, if it wasn't for Jim Henson and the Muppets, we may never have had SS - or, at the very least, the SS we've come to know and love for the past nearly five decades.
