Dave Goelz is the creative mind, voice and hand behind The Great Gonzo, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Zoot the Sax Player and Boober Fraggle. He has been performing with the Muppets since 1973 after meeting Frank Oz at the New York puppetry festival. And since “The Muppet Movie” recently celebrated its 35th birthday, we spoke to Goelz, (pronounced “goals”), a former industrial designer, about his friendship with Jim Henson, the pain of puppeteering, and what exactly The Great Gonzo is.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
