Renee Menschaar is a puppeteer on Sesamstraat, the Dutch co-production of Sesame Street.

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.

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.
