The Rainbow Connection: Richard Hunt, Gay Muppeteer
by Jessica Max Stein Author
Max (of Long Walk Back to Myself zine) has compiled a a heap of information about the life of Richard Hunt, a Muppet puppeteer who worked on Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, and a myriad of other Henson projects. Richard began his work with Muppets at 18, and continued on until his death from AIDS in 1992. He voiced the characters Beaker, Scooter, Gladys the Cow, Janice, Statler (heckling from the Muppet Show's balcony) and many others. It's a celebration of Richard Hunt's career, and his contribution to the world through his work. Max also profiles some of the lesser known female Muppeteers, and discusses the general effect of Muppets on the world. The whole zine is well put together and thoroughly researched.
