Don Music by Nephellim Don Music by Nephellim
“Oh, I’ll never get this...never!”
🎹
For those who grew up during the ‘Golden Age’ of Sesame Street, here’s a muppet who indubitably (try saying that 3 times fast) would have left a mark, Don Music!
🎹
According to ‘Sesame Street Unpaved’, published in 1998, "The character, played by Richard Hunt, was abandoned because of complaints about his alarming tendencies toward self-inflicted punishment. Apparently, kids were imitating his head-banging at home."
🎹
Aside from Don Music, Richard Hunt performed many other characters on Sesame Street, including Forgetful Jones, Placido Flamingo, Gladys the Cow, Sully, and an early version of Elmo. Sadly, Hunt passed away from AIDS related complications in 1992. Some of his characters who taken over by other other voice talents, some were given more silent roles, and some, like Don, were retired from the show.
🎹
Here’s to Jim Henson, Richard Hunt and Don Music.
