Tim DeHaas served as an additional puppeteer on The Muppets Take Manhattan.

DeHaas's contributions to the film include performing Janice in the group scene at Pete's Luncheonette near the end of the film, performing Bunsen and Beaker backstage at Manhattan Melodies, and performing one of the singing wedding veils in the "Somebody's Getting Married" number, and performing Muppet asparagus for a line that was deleted from the final cut of "He'll Make Me Happy." On his first day of work on the film, DeHaas operated Kermit the Frog's right hand for a scene in which Kermit played the banjo.[1]

Prior to his experience on The Muppets Take Manhattan, DeHaas worked as a puppeteer on local television in Bangor, Maine.[2]
