Tom Newby demonstrates a waldo-controlled puppet to Jojo.

Tom Newby was part of the electro-mechanical team at the New York Muppet Workshop. He was originally hired by Faz Fazakas. Although he built a few characters on his own, Newby was primarily responsible for mechanisms (including radio control) that enhanced the Muppet characters as well as structural and mechanical components of the walk-around characters. He also supervised and designed puppet rigging for various Henson productions.

Newby appeared onscreen in The Jim Henson Hour episode "Secrets of the Muppets."
