America's Sesame Street's Most Wanted: Gordon

| Filed under: TV News

Have you seen Gordon? Seriously?

The clip (above) is from the pilot episode of Sesame Street's, which features the first actor to play Gordon.

Apparently the people at Sesame Street don't now his name! (And no, it's not Tracy Morgan.)

The citizens of Sesame Street wrote a Tumblr asking America to help them identify him! They wrote:

"We lost Gordon. Can you help us find him? (Seriously.)

Sesame Street debuted 42 years ago today. But like most other TV shows, we had a test pilot. We created it in the summer of 1969, just a few months before the first episode aired. The actor who played Gordon on the show was replaced by an actor named Matt Robinson.

Two years ago, we put together a huge anthology of our then-40 year history… and realized that we do not know who played Gordon in the test pilot. We've asked everyone we could think of - actors, actresses, and puppeteers who have been on the show since its inception; Sesame Workshop's founder, Joan Ganz Cooney; and of course, dug through seemingly endless boxes of documents and photos.

Any clue would be great, even if it's seemingly esoteric or mundane. You can email it to us at wheresgordon@sesameworkshop.org with any clues."

If you know anything, please help reunite his man with the puppets that miss him!
