We’ve seen Eric Jacobson’s Miss Piggy, Grover, Fozzie Bear, Bert, and Animal dozens of times now, but it’s rare when we catch him with an original character. Thanks to the good folks at CNN, you can not only see Eric perform a penguin and an Anything Muppet king, but you can hear his speaking voice and see what he looks like in real life. Not that he’s a recluse or anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if most people still wondered who this mysterious puppeteer really is.
In the video below, CNN visited Eric Jacobson at the Muppet Workshop where they showed off some puppets, talked technique, and explain why penguin posture is so important.
