Tyler Bunch (b. February 10, 1970) has worked as a Muppet performer since joining the cast of Sesame Street in 1993.

Initially hired as an occasional background puppeteer for Sesame productions, Bunch's big break came with Bear in the Big Blue House, where he performed Treelo, Pop, and Doc Hogg. After working on Bear and other puppet series, Bunch rejoined Sesame Street as a regular performer in the mid-2000s. He has played a variety of one-shot ancillary characters; mainly announcers, game show hosts, and parody Muppets. Bunch's main Sesame character is Elmo's dad, Louie, a role he inherited from Bill Barretta. He also performs Rosita's dad, Ricardo.

Bunch has also sung in voice-over in the remake of the "Ten Turtles" animation, and the theme song for the Sesame parody "True Mud." Bunch has voiced various characters for the recurring segments Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures and Abby's Flying Fairy School. He also voiced Jack Bowser and others on the 2009 revival of The Electric Company.

His puppetry work outside of the Muppets includes Between the Lions (as Dr. Nitwhite), The Book of Pooh (puppeteering Tigger to Jim Cummings' voice), Oobi (Grampu), It's a Big Big World (Winslow, Riona the Baby Sloth), Crank Yankers, and the Jim Henson Company show Julie's Greenroom (Hugo). In live-action, Bunch has appeared on the Law & Order "Criminal Intent" and "Special Victims Unit" series.
