He might just be your toddlers favorite forty year old! He is Elmo from Sesame Street and for the past four decades he has delighted little hearts with his lovable personality and laughter. Born in 1972 and originally named "baby monster" Elmo has turned into a multimillion dollar property for the people he works for. He has appeared on Oprah, Martha Stewart and countless other talk shows but still there is something about him you may not know. Who is the person that makes Elmo come alive for all of us to love?

I want you to picture in your mind what you think that individual looks like. Is it a man? Or a woman? Is it a large person or a person that is somewhat petite in stature? Stop guessing and get ready to meet Kevin Clash, know the world over as Elmo.
