PERFORMER Jerry Nelson
DEBUT 1994

Guntag Gelman Jones is a flea trainer. He appeared in a 1994 episode of Sesame Street where he brought his box of world-famous fleas to Sesame Street to perform. The acts include Olaf the Weight-Lifting Flea and Tatanya Flea on the tightrope. After their performance, Guntag takes the fleas (in their traveling case -- a detailed shoebox that looks like a circus tent) to the Furry Arms Hotel so someone can watch them while he is away. The character later made a cameo in a 1995 episode.

The character is a spoof of the animal trainer Gunther Gebel-Williams. He is made from an orange live-hand Anything Muppet.
