Elmo is an elaborate hoax perpetrated by Will Ryan in the early 90s at a defunct animation studio. Essentially he made up the charcter of Elmo as one of the great cartoon characters of the thirties. But he never actually appeared in a cartoon until the late ninties or early 2000 during the Flash animation craze ala Ice Box. He has some stuff up at Renegadestudios.com.

Thing is that everyone in the animation community fell for Ryan's hoax because he did it with such conviction.
