Peter Linz has been playing with puppets since the age of three and has wanted to work in children’s television since age 10.
After a short detour, during which he obtained a degree in psychology from the University of Georgia, his dream was realized when he was hired to be a puppeteer with the Jim Henson Company. His puppet characters can be seen on Sesame Street, Between the Lions (Theo, Heath, Gawain), Blue’s Room (Polka Dots, Doodle Board), The Book of Pooh (Pooh) and Bear in the Big Blue House (Tutter, Pip) His film credits include the upcoming remake of “The Producers” as well as “Muppets From Space” and “Men in Black”. He has created & led workshops in television puppetry under the auspices of the Jim Henson Company in Germany, China, Mexico and the United States. Recently Peter was an original cast member on Broadway in the Tony Award winning musical “Avenue Q”. He is currently preparing for his biggest role yet – literally – as Snook the Sloth in PBS’s It’s a Big Big World.
