John Lovelady puppeteering on The Great Space Coaster, a non-Muppet series.

John Lovelady worked for The Jim Henson Company during the late 1960s and 70s as both a performer and a puppet builder. As a builder, he worked on the original Oscar the Grouch and characters for The Great Santa Claus Switch. As a puppeteer, he performed in every episode of The Muppet Show during the first season. He left the company shortly after season 1 of The Muppet Show ended, and went on to perform in a number of non-Henson puppet series.

He was born in Oxford, Mississippi, and attended the same (consolidated) grade school as Jim Henson, albeit five grades ahead. For nearly five decades, he has been married to Nancy McGeorge, who performed background characters on The Muppets Valentine Show.
