Caroly Wilcox began working in the New York Muppet Workshop in 1969, as work on Sesame Street began. Wilcox originally worked as an occasional puppeteer as well as a builder and designer, assisting on Ernie and performing in occasional sketches (such as "First and Last"). According to Quilting with the Muppets, she also made occasional cameos as the school bus driver.
Wilcox became the workshop supervisor for the Sesame Muppets, and remained so until her retirement in 1990. Wilcox was viewed as the expert Muppet maker; she trained many of the Muppet builders.
