elmo is voiced by someone who wanted to be a puppeteer his whole life.

I'm so excited.  The library near me is really small but it has a pretty big shelf of biographies.  Before I racked up a $40 fee in late fines, I was reading a lot of books out of that section. A few years ago i read elmos biography, written by the man who voices him. I was pretty surprised to find out that elmo is voiced by a 40 something year-old black man who dreamed of being a puppeteer his whole life.  He sees elmos as a platform to teach kids life lessons, and through sesame street, has done that all over the world.  well, someone just made a movie out of it!  watch the preview---it's so heartwarming.
