Richard Hunt's puppetry?

From Gabriel Velez's Muppet Mindset interview:

I was asked to audition for Osvaldo the Grouch... Osvaldo the Grouch had existed rarely on Sesame Street puppeteered by Richard Hunt with a voiceover done by someone I believe named Umberto Noritz. Not sure.

Should we make a note of Richard Hunt's puppetry for the character and someone else dubbing the voice (since Gabriel doesn't really know the voice for sure)? ---- Jesse (talk) 21:30, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

I would think it's called for; The text in the article, so far, gives the impression that Velez performed Osvaldo in all appearances (except for the latter 90's appearance noted), while in truth he didn't take the character until he became a Muppeteer in the early 80's. Osvaldo's appearance in Episode 1316 definitely looks dubbed, so I can believe that it's Hunt to a pre-recorded voice. As long as there's written proof of it, I think it should be noted. I don't mind rewording the text, although it still may come out a little obscure because of the unknown voice actor. -- Jon (talk) 00:50, March 21, 2011 (UTC)

Oswaldo?

Osvaldo-press

The character is referred to as Oswaldo in a 1985 coloring book, Ernie's Finish the Picture. What are the references for Osvaldo? -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 04:43, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't have access to them, but the CTW archive press materials about the Puerto Rico episodes, for one, and performer Gabriel Velez' webpage, for another. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:58, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Here's another source for Osvaldo from a press kit for Season 11. —Scott (talk) 05:18, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Right, that's what I meant by press materials. I'm glad you found it. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 05:22, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
All right, done! Thank you, boys. :) -- Danny@Wikia (talk) 17:26, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
