Renee plays Pino. She has been performing him since 1990, which is the longest anybody has played the bird. Renee is also the first woman in a row of male Pino performers. Renee invented Pino's signature laugh and catchphrases, and turned the character a bit younger.
She started out as Tommie's right hand.
When she's not performing Pino, Renee works as a puppeteer for other Dutch educational TV shows.
