Defiant Elmo To Join Fellow 'Sesame Street' Stars In Thanksgiving Parade
Yes, the guy who voiced and pulled the strings for “Sesame Street’s iconic Elmo over the past three decades has resigned amidst scandal, but let’s not confuse the puppeteer with the ageless furry red Muppet. Thankfully, Gothamist’s Jen Carlson has confirmed that Elmo’s next big televised appearance -- on a float at Thursday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade -- will go on as scheduled. No word yet anywhere from Elmo’s co-star Big Bird, who had his own controversy to deal with last month when Presidential candidate Mitt Romney vowed to fire him. Maybe Romney just chose the wrong Muppet?
