Jim Martin is an American puppeteer, best known for his roles on Sesame Street. As part of the cast, he has won an Emmy Award. He has been nominated multiple times, and won for "Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design/Styling" at the Emmys, also for Sesame Street.
In the 1970s, Martin puppeteered a character in another local show, Adventure Time.
Martin performed as one of the main puppet characters on the live-action/animated kids TV series "The Great Space Coaster" (1981–1986) as Gary Gnu - "This is Gary Gnu, your no-gnews gnews reporter" and as the villain M.T. Promises.
Martin was a producer and director on the show Johnny and the Sprites, and is the creator and owner of the Anybody Pupplets.
Also, whenever Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird (both characters performed by Caroll Spinney) have to be in the same scene together, Martin operates Oscar to a vocal track by Spinney so the latter can operate Big Bird.
