Kevin Clash may have resigned from "Sesame Street", but his voice will possibly be heard on the children's show until the next two years. New York Post learns from show executives that the Elmo puppeteer has filmed episodes through 2014.

Clash quit the long-running series after being hit with underage-sex claims by two guys. The first accuser, Sheldon Stephen, recanted his claim in mid-November reportedly after Clash paid him $125,000, but the aspiring model later considered to undo the settlement.

The second accuser, Cecil Singleton, slapped Clash with a $5 million lawsuit for "adverse psychological and emotional effects from Kevin Clash's sexual acts and conduct until 2012." Singleton's lawsuit was quickly followed with Clash's resignation.

Though Clash has quit as the voice of Elmo, the red furry monster still joins the 2012 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 22 with another puppeteer bringing him to life. A Sesame Workshop executive previously insisted that Clash's departure wouldn't affect the show's production because other actors had been filling in for Clash when he was off work.
