Caricatured appearances


  • When Traveling Matt rides a roller coaster, Goelz had to ride next to him in order to perform the puppet on the moving coaster car. Goelz had a false right-arm positioned on the back of the roller coaster seat allowing his real right-arm to be used to control the puppet sitting next to him. During a January 2006 appearance for a public screening of Fraggle Rock episodes, Goelz stated that during shooting on-location spots for Traveling Matt, he was often something of a "Bert" to Jerry Juhl's "Ernie", being placed in "aggravating situations like... on a roller coaster when he knew I was afraid of roller coasters." [1] A similar trick was used in Muppets on Wheels with Lindy and performer Bruce Lanoil.[2]
