My next tribute is to the characters of Muppeteer, Richard Hunt.
Hunt started working with the Muppets when he was 18, he played Scooter, Beaker, Statler, Sweetums and Janice in the Muppet show, in Sesame street he played Gladys the cow, Forgetful Jones and the Two headed monster (right, Jerry Nelson played the left head.) In Fraggle Rock he played Junior Gorg (and controlled his head), Mudwell the Mudbunny and Gunge.
His directing debut was in the Fraggle Rock episode "The Honk of Honks".
"A Muppet Christmas Carol" was dedicated "in loving memory of Richard Hunt and Jim Henson"
