Richard Hunt

While it makes sense that Tartaglia would admire Hunt, I'm not sure about the Muppetcast citation. I recently listened to that episode again, and, as I had remembered, Tartaglia doesn't appear. Max riverbottom

Dog City

What is the source for John appearing as an additional performer in Dog City? He's not listed on the Dog City Wikia page and I haven't seen it listed anywhere else. The show seems to have been before all his other Muppets/Sesame credits. Theatrefreak25 07:32, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Take a closer look. The source is the Sesameworkshop bio quoted on this page, right above the credits section. He was uncredited on the actual show, so it was possibly just assistant work then (the show's final season would have coincided with the start of his, also then unbilled, work on Sesame Street, and both shows were taped in New York). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 17:20, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Ahh, thank you very much!! All the times that I have previously read that bio, that credit must never registered in my mind! Theatrefreak25 19:13, 24 December 2008 (UTC)


Has John ever puppeteered Elmo, in the background of a scene say, or when Kevin's not available? Wikipedia said "Should Clash be unable to perform Elmo, John Tartaglia is the current backup performer." I'm just wanting to make sure that was at one point true. -- Zanimum 18:49, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

John has been credited in the past as an assist for Elmo, particularly on Elmo's World with Matt Vogel and Jim Martin. John hasn't worked on Sesame for the last two seasons though. — Scott (talk) 19:03, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey

Is there a specific reason that we are not writing the fact that John worked on Being Elmo? Or was it just forgotten? I added it to the text, if there is a specific reason, please remove it.
