  • According to Kevin Clash, Whoopi Goldberg was once a babysitter for a few of the kids: "Before she was well-known, she was a baby-sitter for some of the kids we had on the show. Then she became famous and whenever we ask her to do something for us, she's always there. She's a part of Sesame Street." [2]
