Steve,

Someone on another list said it was three puppeteers... I have read elsewhere that it was seven!

Back in high school Steve Whitmire made an Elvis puppet that was about two and a a half feet tall that used black art and 3 puppeteers.  One puppeteer worked the head and left arm, second puppeteer worked the right arm and hips, and the third worked both feet.  It was a tight fit on the stage, but the performance looked spectacular!
