Possibly the greatest revelation in “Being Elmo” is how Clash's experience is reflected by new generations. Late in the film, he is visited by a young puppeteer who can identify all the master puppeteers in a Muppets cast portrait and is now creating his own characters. He could be to Clash what Clash was to Henson: An heir apparent. “Being Elmo” illustrates that, no matter how technology alters artists' approach to creating fantasies, something magical happens when a character made of fleece, foam and plastic is given life by a talented artist.
