Self portrait.

Kevin Carlson (b. April 12, 1962) is a puppeteer who has performed on various Muppet and Henson projects. On tour as the primary puppeteer in The Muppet Show: On Tour!, Carlson met both his future wife (who was one of the costumed dancers) and Jim Henson.

Outside of the Muppet realm, Carlson was trained at a workshop hosted by Sid and Marty Krofft, later performing in a series of 1981 Oral Roberts Celebration specials and on Pee-wee's Playhouse as Conky, Clocky, and Floory. He later wrote and performed the title characters in the puppet series The Adventures of Timmy the Tooth and the toy-tie in Toby Terrier and His Video Pals. Films include Team America: World Police, the Men in Black film series, Batman Returns, and Dr. Dolittle 2. TV includes The Mr. Potato Head Show (Mr. Potato Head), Imagination Movers (Warehouse Mouse), Crank Yankers, All That, and other TV shows and commercials. In 2006, Carlson performed a puppet character, Edward R. Meow, in an episode of The Office; the puppet was a character in a TV show that Michael Scott appeared on as a child.

Carlson ran an online puppet greeting card site called PuppetGreetings.com, featuring original characters such as Captain Bucky, Bob, Eyegore (a renamed Sidney Cyclops from The Adventures of Timmy the Tooth) and more.
