The Puppet, actually called as “Baby Monster”, was performed by Jerry Nelson and Caroll Spinney in the background of episodes from the early 1970, Richard Hunt from 1981 to 1984, and Brain Muehl from 1979 to 1981. A brilliant puppeteer raised him up and brought power and life into Elmo and from that day forward we would all write for Elmo. Kevin work shocked the writers to develop Elmo character. Matt Vogel, John Tartaglia, and Jim Martin have all been minor performers for the character, giving movement for Elmo legs and arms, particularly in green-display shots.
The puppet that would finally become Elmo was designed in 1979 by Caroly Wilcox. Focused as an actual background monster, he emerged as a plus in several sketches and, for a time, had no reliable performer, being take up by different puppeteers.
Elmo emerged in a 1991 episode of The Torkelsons and had special guest spots on the Frugal Gourmet. In the mid-1990s, this beautiful monster becomes a regular guest on the Rosie O Donnel Show, emerging more than a dozen times between 1995 and 2002. The Tickle Me Elmo doll was produced in his likeness and become the famous toy during the Christmas season in 1996, and subsequent variations and other Elmo dolls such as Big Hugs Elmo, Elmo kids party live, Lets Rock! Elmo and Chicken Dance Elmo) have also been successful.
