Godwin served as a Muppet performer on Elmo's Christmas Countdown and A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa. Among his other credits are It's a Big Big World, ,The Book of Pooh, Between the Lions, and Oobi.

In addition, he founded the puppet troupe the Elementals, and co-wrote and starred in the adult puppet variety stage show Uncle Jimmy's Dirty Basement.
