Pam Arciero (born on May 8th, 1954) is a very talented puppeteer & voice-over artist who is best known in the world of the Muppets for her incredible work on Sesame Street. For over 25 years, Pam Arciero has been the voice performer of Grundgetta to Caroll Spinney's Oscar the Grouch.

A few years before joining Sesame Street, she had auditioned for the role of Mr. Snuffleupagus after Michael Earl left the show. She didn't get the part, but she eventually became a Muppet performer in 1982.

Arciero earned her Master's in Puppetry from the University of Connecticut & has performed characters for numerous shows outside of the Muppet sphere, including The Great Space Coaster, Allegra's Window, Between the Lions (replacing Kathryn Mullen as Leona), Eureeka's Castle, & Lomax, the Hound of Music (as Louise).
