Richard Hunt with Placido Flamingo and his namesake, Plácido Domingo, in Sesame Street: 20 and Still Counting.
Placido Flamingo is an operatic flamingo from Sesame Streetwhose performances at the Nestropolitan Opera are seen in the “Live from the Nest” series. He is based on the famous tenor, Plácido Domingo. Placido is proud of his talents and not averse to the sound of his own voice. The character was first introduced in Season 18, and helped to introduce classical music into the series. The character was created by writer Mark Saltzman.
Though retired in 1992, along with most of Richard Hunt’s other characters, Placido Flamingo is still frequently cited in articles about opera appreciation, as an effective and influential early introduction to opera, ranking with the Bugs Bunny short What’s Opera Doc? (1957).

A rare photo of Miss Kitty and an early J.G. Frackle, The Muppet Show.
“Miss Kitty” is a purple monster who first appeared as a Frackle with a match in The Great Santa Claus Switch, performed by Richard Hunt. When he appeared on The Muppet Show, his nose was changed from green to blue, and his eyes were enlarged.
The character was named during his first appearance on The Muppet Show, in the “Cowboy Time” sketch on episode 101. As Rowlf walked through the saloon, he greeted the monster as “Miss Kitty,” in a gag reference to saloon owner Miss Kitty Russell from the radio and television Western series Gunsmoke.
Despite the joke, the character has a male voice and usually has male characteristics. However, like other utility Muppets and background characters, gender can change according to the needs of the sketch; for example, in a wig, Miss Kitty is used as the female love interest of the “All of Me” singer on episode 108.
Like many Muppet Monsters, Miss Kitty had no consistent performer. His known performers include:
Dave Goelz: Episodes 101, 103, and 107
Jim Henson: Episode 113
Richard Hunt: Episode 119
The Miss Kitty puppet was also reworked for Thudge McGerk in episode 119 (where the character also appears, in unaltered form, in At the Dance and the closing song “You’ve Got a Friend”).

This Frog" is a Sesame Street song sung by Kermit the Frog, with the Tarnish Brothers providing back-up vocals. The song is a declaration of Kermit’s independence and determination to succeed.
The song inspired the title of a 2016 Jim Henson Legacy screening at the Museum of the Moving Image, entitled “This Frog: A Kermit Kompilation from Sam and Friends to Stardom.” The compilation itself concluded with a montage set to the song.
