This is sad – Muppet performer Jerry Nelson passed away yesterday.

In addition to playing The Count on Sesame Street, he also performed Gobo from Fraggle Rock, Floyd from the Electric Mayhem, Emmet from Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas, Kermit’s nephew, Robin, and one of my all-time favorite Sesame Street characters, Sherlock Hemlock.

He first started working with Jim Henson and The Muppets in 1965.

Egad – the world has lost an amazing detective, indeed…
