Im pretty sure that 3 plus the voice is correct.
I have also seen 7 mentioned in print, but the media DOES like to 
exaggerate,
Maybe 7 included the the puppet builder and the press agent  (half kidding/ 
half not kiddiing speculation here)

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!
