Birgit Strøm R.I.P

Norwegian puppeteer Birgit Strøm died two days ago.
Strøm was famous for her kids tv characters Titten Tei and Teodor, where she did the puppeteering as well as the voice characterizations.

I met her as a little boy vacationing in Bulgaria in 1984. I remember a very friendly person and I could not believe that she was not only so approachable, but sincerely interested in talking to little guys like 10-year-old me. When we got back home, we got a signed card from Titten Tei in the mail. I still got the card.

So long, Birgit, you will be missed.
