So I see I wasn't the only one to find this behind-the-scenes video where the Barrio Sésamo puppeteers are being trained how to operate Perezgil and Caponata, as it was included on all three pages. (YouTube)

I am almost sure that it's Daniel Seagren training the puppeteers, from what I've seen of how he looked and sounded at the time, and still does in interviews, including the one on his home page. What do you think? If it is, is the training video worth being included on Danny's page? --Splurge (talk) 13:09, 28 December 2021 (UTC)

I had the same thought some time ago, when I saw the screenshot of him with the Perezgil puppet on the character's page. Furthermore, there are a couple of photos of him in this book where he has the same mustache. I think it's a match! — Jesse (talk) 07:52, 30 December 2021 (UTC)
Hey, thanks for these photos. Seeing him with one of his Slim Goodbody puppets also makes me more certain that was a on-screen cameo as a crooked taxi driver in an episode. (YouTube) (0:23-1:06) --Splurge (talk) 01:24, 31 December 2021 (UTC)
I wholly agree and have, in fact, just added that to Muppeteers in non-Henson acting roles. Good spot! — Jesse (talk) 04:55, 31 December 2021 (UTC)
