Renée Menschaar performs Pino on Sesamstraat, the Dutch co-production of Sesame Street. She has been performing him since 1990, longer than any other puppeteer, and is also the first woman to play the role. She invented Pino's signature laugh and catchphrases, and made the character a bit younger.
Menschaar started out as Tommie's right hand. When she's not performing Pino, she works as a puppeteer for other Dutch educational TV shows.
