* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Unlike his predecessors, we never find out what happened to him. Or his assistant Carlo, who vanished at the same time that he did.
* CoolOldGuy
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: When the first actor played him.
* NiceGuy: When the second actor took over.
* RetiredBadass: Remember, he used to fight fires for a living.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The first Mr. Handford (a bespectacled, elderly JerkWithAHeartOfGold) was like this, but for Mr. Hooper, not for David.

* BlindWithoutEm: In one episode during the era when everyone thought Snuffy was imaginary, he came face-to-face with Snuffy, but couldn't see him because he had lost his glasses.
* BusCrash: When his death was finally revealed on the show, he had already been absent for a year following the death of Will Lee.
* CoolOldGuy: He was a snarky, funny guy.
* DeathIsASadThing: Played so, ''so'' straight with his death. In doing the episode's defining scene in one take, an unintentional lesson -- that even adults cry and feel deeply saddened when someone they are close to dies, and that oftentimes entire families cry together in times of grief (indeed, several of the adult characters are visibly emotional and on the verge of tears as they explain to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper died and is not coming back...ever) -- made its indelible mark on this episode and earning it critical acclaim.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mr Hooper is somewhat sarcastic but he is a nice person.
* LastNameBasis: As the oldest on the street in his day, he considered this a mark of respect.
* NeverSayDie: A subversion, which is still met with acclaim today; after his actor died, the writer's decided to use the opportunity to directly address death for the show's young audience.
* ShirtlessScene: On the beach, in Hawaii. Obviously not played for {{Fanservice}}.
* SuddenlyEthnicity: Bob wishes him a Happy Hanukkah in ''[[ChristmasSpecial Christmas Eve on Sesame Street]]''.
* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: He was killed off after his actor (Will Lee) died on December 7, 1982.

* UnexpectedSuccessor: David had to pretty much scrap his plans for law school when Mr. Hooper died.
* WhosWatchingTheStore: Subverted. Mr. Hooper would either close the store or ask someone else to run it.

----

%%* GreekChorus: In "The Cowmonster Pair".
* HappilyMarried: Married to Maria.

----
* AbortedArc: She was hooked up with David until the mid-1980s.
** [[WordOfGod According to Louise Gikow, who wrote for various international co-productions]], the reason why the David–Maria romance angle was dropped was due to health problems involving David's actor, Northern Calloway. Calloway had been battling mental illness since the 17th season began in 1985, and by the time the 20th season ended in 1989, he became so ill and ill-looking that he had to leave the show, dying of excited delirium complications only a year later in 1990.

* SpicyLatina: Not normally an example, but she can lose patience a bit more dramatically than most of the other adults: see, for example, her {{The Reason You Suck Speech}} to Oscar in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet'' after he caused Big Bird to go missing.
* TeamMom: When she first joined the show she was more of a CoolBigSis figure while Susan was the TeamMom of the show, but as Maria matured she took on a more motherly role too. In the direct-to-video special where Big Bird gets sick and goes to the hospital, the receptionist asks her "Are you his mother?" and she responds "Not exactly... Sort of... Yeah."
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Oscar. He's normally just as rude to her as to anyone else, and she has no qualms about standing up to him (for example, in the above-mentioned ''Christmas Eve'' scene), but they've shared more friendship moments than he has with any other human. When she gave birth to Gabi, he was the one who drove her to the hospital in his Sloppy Jalopy.
* WackyCravings: She shared and enjoyed a lunch with ''Oscar'' while pregnant.
%%* WriterOnBoard: For a stretch of 20 years.

A little girl who has autism, an alternate neurology which some folk consider a disorder. Introduced in 2017 in the wake of increased diagnoses (1 in 68 children) of autism and autism-spectrum disorder conditions.

* {{Adorkable}}: Even in the Sesame Street universe, Julia's mannerisms, playfulness, limited dialogue, and overall cuteness truly stand out.
* BigBrotherWorship: She always cheers for her big brother at his soccer games and loves to play with him.
* BreakoutCharacter: Introduced as the world's first autistic Muppet, she has become an instant hit with audiences and is in almost as much merchandise as the other characters.
* BrokenRecord: Has a bit of echolalia when talking with other characters, but also repeats some of what she, herself, says.
* CatchPhrase: "Play, play, play!"
* CharacterTic: Flapping her arms in excitement.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Described by Abby as doing things "in a Julia sort of way."
* TheCloudCuckoolanderWasRight: When Julia and some of the other characters go on a shape hunt, Julia repeatedly identifies shapes her team is looking for, apparently incorrectly, only for the rest of her team to discover that the shape is incorporated within the larger shaped object. For example, she says "circle," pointing to a stopsign. Her team points out that it's actually an octagon, only to eventually figure out that Julia is referring to the little circles cut out of the stopsign pole, while everyone else is focusing on the yellow tubes outlining them.
* TheCutie: Try not to go "Awwww" when seeing Julia.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her toy rabbit is her comfort object.
* HollywoodAutism: ''Sesame Street'' stops in its tracks to point out how atypical Julia is, and she's portrayed as having stereotypical mannerisms.
* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: As storylines progress about Julia, her characteristics are played up. In her first appearance, for instance, she is participating in a game when she begins jumping up and down. Instead of rejecting Julia, the other characters and Muppets decide that jumping up and down is a lot more fun.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The show's puppets typically only have one articulated arm, but she has both due to the above-mentioned CharacterTic.
* TheQuietOne: Doesn't talk much, as pointed by Elmo.
--> '''Elmo:''' Yeah, Julia doesn't say a lot.
* SecurityBlanket: Her raggedy toy rabbit, which is torn in several places and perhaps looks like it should have been thrown out years ago. But it is her comfort object.

* VocalDissonance: She's four years old, but she sounds like a grown woman.

--> Caroll Spinney (1969-present)
-->Eric Jacobson (understudy, 2014-present)
An irritable, antisocial Grouch who lives in a BiggerOnTheInside trash can with his worm, Slimey, and his elephant Fluffy.
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Oscar takes up this role in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland when he volunteers to go with Telly, Gordon, Big Bird, Maria, and Cookie Monster to venture to Grouchland and get Elmo's stolen blanket back from Huxley.
* AntiRoleModel: One purpose of the character is to poke fun at irritable people. [[StrawmanHasAPoint Which isn't to say that his irritation isn't justified sometimes.]]
* BigEater
* BigOlUnibrow: Huge eyebrows are a species trait.
* BizarreTasteInFood: He hates foods most would consider nice or healthy, but loves noxious combinations of food that are ''technically'' still edible... just really gross. Like sardine ice-cream. Again, it's a species trait.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often shows shades of this trope.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He was orange for a year. (Apparently he still would be, if he ever bathed.)
* EveryoneHasStandards: Oscar may be a hoarder of most stuff, but Huxley being selfish and keeping everything thing he sees (including Elmo's blanket) and never giving them back is where Oscar draws the line.
* GrumpyBear: He's a Grouch. It's a species trait.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Every now and then, some of the mean-spirited pranks and schemes he pulls tend to backfire, where he may end up being the victim himself. Often happens when he's frustrated when targeting a rather slow-witted character with his pranks.
* {{Jerkass}}: Cranky, rude, and mean. Although as much is allowable on a preschool show. The [[TheWikiRule Muppet Wiki]] puts it best:
--> Oscar's mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. When a visitor knocks on his trash can -- invariably interrupting him from a nap or an important task -- Oscar greets them with a snarl. He complains that he wants to be left alone, although when he's left entirely to himself, he's dissatisfied -- there isn't anybody around to irritate or complain to.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The true depths of his jerk nature are often called into question and he can get comically defensive when [[SlaveToPR his reputation as a "true Grouch"]] is threatened.
* KickTheDog: Sometimes takes his rudeness a little too far, as when he upset Big Bird by teasing him with {{How Can Santa Deliver All Those Toys}} questions in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet''.
* LargeHam: He's as snarky as he is a large ham.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
%%* MoralityPet: Slimey
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: There does appear to be an occasional running gag where his intended mean-spirited ways backfire, unwittingly causing pleasant and helpful results for other characters. Much to his dismay, of course.
* TheNicknamer: As far as Oscar is concerned, Bob and Maria are Bright Eyes and Skinny, respectively, and Big Bird is Turkey.
* ThePigpen: Always seen in a trash can, so yeah.
* ThePrankster: Sometimes he plays jokes on other characters.
* SickEpisode:
** At the end of one episode, he contracts Grouch Flu from Grundgetta.
** In one episode, he gets "Kind-itis", which makes him kind and rhymey.
%%* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with [[DistaffCounterpart Grungetta]].
* SlaveToPR: One has to wonder if he'd be so concerned about being a "real Grouch" - or if he'd be so self-conscious anytime he says, does, or thinks something even remotely pleasant - if it weren't for Grouch society constantly stressing how Grouches are ''supposed'' to act.
* SomethingItis: In one episode, he gets a disease called "kind-itis".
* TooImportantToWalk: He's rarely seen walking. When he needs to be transported somewhere, a garbageman named Bruno carries his can. (He does in Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet a few times.)
%%* TrashOfTheTitans
%%* {{Troll}}: He can definitely come off as this at times.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Easily with ''any'' of the nice Sesame Street residents that like being sweet and chummy with him, especially Elmo, Telly, and Maria.
* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this reaction from Leela and Elmo for seeing the Mine-itis outbreak as a cause for celebration.
** The adults give him another one in [[ChristmasSpecial "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street"]] for putting a [[HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys bunch of doubts]] in Big Bird's head about the existence of SantaClaus, which leads to Big Bird disappearing to find out for sure.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Used to be this sort of "friend" to poor Telly.
** Although, they seem to have fallen into a more traditional Type 1 VitriolicBestBuds as of late.
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Often inverted. As you may expect, he does not appreciate being praised by the other characters for doing something less-than-grouchy.

Michael Earl Davis (1978 - 1980)\\

-->Peter Friedman (1976-1978)
-->Brian Muehl (1979)
-->Frank Kane (1979)
-->Bryant Young (1979-present)

A slow-talking, elephantlike creature and Big Bird's best friend. He originally wasn't thought to be real, but was revealed in a Season 17 episode.
----
* AbandonedCatchphrase: Mr. Snuffleupagus used to always say "Oh, dear" in a worried voice. Big Bird even lampshaded it once; when Snuffy went missing in one episode and BB called the police (an Anything Muppet) to take a report, part of his description was that he said "Oh dear" a lot.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He started out with a rather odd and perpetually sad personality as well as speaking with a rather creepy, echoing, sad voice. It wasn't until when Marty Robinson took over the character that, though still sad occasionally, his personality became more cheerful and his voice had a wider range of emotions.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Snuffle used to have wide yellow eyes with green sclera and was understandably changed to a different lazy eyed design as the debut appearance was... [[NightmareFuel unsettling, to say the least]].
* TheEeyore: Used to be one of his defining character traits, but he steadily grew out of it [[CharacterizationMarchesOn as time went on]].
* InSeriesNickname: "Snuffy." He calls Big Bird "Bird."
* {{Leitmotif}}: Has a theme tune sometimes.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: When he helps rebuild Big Bird's by blow-drying the mud that holds it together with his snuffle, he claims that his middle name is "Help" and his full name is "Aloysius Help Snuffleupagus".
* MissedHimByThatMuch: In his early appearances, he'd wander off before anyone other than Big Bird could spot him, leading to speculation that he was BB's ImaginaryFriend.
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: For Big Bird. Everyone assumes that Snuffy is imaginary and even Big Bird thinks this at one point, but they are convinced otherwise later on.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus. Even though almost everyone on the series refers to him by his nickname, his mother usually refers to him by his real name.
* PrecociousCrush: Pre-dating the Elmo and Gina plot (see above), he had a crush on Maria for a while.
* RealAfterAll: He is revealed to the adult cast ''13 years'' after his debut, in order to encourage kids to be more honest with their parents. It was an emotional experience for the characters and actors.
* SatelliteCharacter: Expectedly only talked to Big Bird due to being his NotSoImaginaryFriend at first. After being proven RealAfterAll, he began interacting heavily with other characters and having family members introduced.

!!Placido Flamingo
--> '''Performer:''' Richard Hunt
He is an opera singing Flamingo. He is introduced by Phil Harmonic. Proud of his talents and not averse to the sound of his own voice, he helped in the introduction of classical music to the series.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He is based on Music/PlacidoDomingo.

!!SAM the Robot

One of the early characters on the show, SAM frequently claimed he was perfect, despite all evidence contrasting it .

* DoAnythingRobot: Efficiently, on the other hand.....
* FunWithAcronyms: His name stands for '''S'''uper '''A'''utomatic '''M'''achine.
* PercussiveMaintenance: In his debut appearance, he arrives on Sesame Street (he meant to go to Mulberry Street), asserting repeatedly that "machines never make mistakes; machines are perfect — are perfect — are perfect." The humans have to thump him hard to make him stop repeating the phrase, for which he thanks them.
* PutOnABus: Mysteriously stopped appearing after the seventh season, although he [[TheBusCameBack returned for the tenth]]
* TinCanRobot: S.A.M. looks like giant tin can. This being ''Sesame Street'', of course, he still has googly eyes and a bowtie.

A father figure to the {{Muppet}}s and kids on the street, and the ''de facto'' leader when things go wrong.
----
* BadassBaritone: Has a deep, rich voice and serves as a strong, wise and kind [[TeamDad anchor]] for the childlike Muppet characters.
* BadassMustache: Matt Robinson and Roscoe Orman both had one. Garret Saunders and Hal Miller were clean-shaven, but their tenures in the role were shorter and had less of an impact.

* CoolTeacher: He's a High School Science teacher.
* GameShowHost: He hosted ''What Happens Next?''
* HappilyMarried: To Susan. They only argued once or twice.

A retired firefighter and the owner of Hooper's Store between David and Alan.
----
* AccidentalMisnaming: Snuffy would sometimes call him "Mr. Handfoot".
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Unlike his predecessors, we never find out what happened to him. Or his assistant Carlo, who vanished at the same time that he did.
* CoolOldGuy
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: When the first actor played him.
* NiceGuy: When the second actor took over.
* RetiredBadass: Remember, he used to fight fires for a living.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: The first Mr. Handford (a bespectacled, elderly JerkWithAHeartOfGold) was like this, but for Mr. Hooper, not for David.

* BusCrash: When his death was finally revealed on the show, he had already been absent for a year following the death of Will Lee.
* CoolOldGuy: He was a snarky, funny guy.
* DeathIsASadThing: Played so, ''so'' straight with his death. In doing the episode's defining scene in one take, an unintentional lesson -- that even adults cry and feel deeply saddened when someone they are close to dies, and that oftentimes entire families cry together in times of grief (indeed, several of the adult characters are visibly emotional and on the verge of tears as they explain to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper died and is not coming back...ever) -- made its indelible mark on this episode and earning it critical acclaim.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mr Hooper is somewhat sarcastic but he is a nice person.
* LastNameBasis: As the oldest on the street in his day, he considered this a mark of respect.
* NeverSayDie: A subversion, which is still met with acclaim today; after his actor died, the writer's decided to use the opportunity to directly address death for the show's young audience.
* ShirtlessScene: On the beach, in Hawaii. Obviously not played for {{Fanservice}}.
* SuddenlyEthnicity: Bob wishes him a Happy Hanukkah in ''[[ChristmasSpecial Christmas Eve on Sesame Street]]''.
* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: He was killed off after his actor (Will Lee) died on December 7, 1982.

* UnexpectedSuccessor: David had to pretty much scrap his plans for law school when Mr. Hooper died.
* WhosWatchingTheStore: Subverted. Mr. Hooper would either close the store or ask someone else to run it.

* DisabledLoveInterest: To Bob, for a while.

----
* GratuitousSpanish: Not so much these days, now that Rosita's around.
%%* GreekChorus: In "The Cowmonster Pair".
* HappilyMarried: Married to Maria.

* MrFixit: He specializes in toaster repair.
* SecretIdentity: In a few episodes, he has one called "Señor Zero", basically an AffectionateParody of Franchise/{{Zorro}}, which he would assume any time someone said the word "none".

----
* AbortedArc: She was hooked up with David until the mid-1980s.
** [[WordOfGod According to Louise Gikow, who wrote for various international co-productions]], the reason why the David–Maria romance angle was dropped was due to health problems involving David's actor, Northern Calloway. Calloway had been battling mental illness since the 17th season began in 1985, and by the time the 20th season ended in 1989, he became so ill and ill-looking that he had to leave the show, dying of excited delirium complications only a year later in 1990.

* ShipSinking: Again, David and Maria, c. 1987. After she married Luis, David became her [[AmicableExes Amicable Ex]] until he left the show.
* SpicyLatina: Not normally an example, but she can lose patience a bit more dramatically than most of the other adults: see, for example, her {{The Reason You Suck Speech}} to Oscar in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet'' after he caused Big Bird to go missing.
* TeamMom: When she first joined the show she was more of a CoolBigSis figure while Susan was the TeamMom of the show, but as Maria matured she took on a more motherly role too. In the direct-to-video special where Big Bird gets sick and goes to the hospital, the receptionist asks her "Are you his mother?" and she responds "Not exactly... Sort of... Yeah."
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Oscar. He's normally just as rude to her as to anyone else, and she has no qualms about standing up to him (for example, in the above-mentioned ''Christmas Eve'' scene), but they've shared more friendship moments than he has with any other human. When she gave birth to Gabi, he was the one who drove her to the hospital in his Sloppy Jalopy.
* WackyCravings: She shared and enjoyed a lunch with ''Oscar'' while pregnant.
%%* WriterOnBoard: For a stretch of 20 years.

* BigEater
* BigOlUnibrow: Huge eyebrows are a species trait.
* BizarreTasteInFood:
He hates foods most would consider nice or healthy, but loves noxious combinations of food that are ''technically'' still edible... just really gross. Like sardine ice-cream. Again, it's a species trait.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often shows shades of this trope.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He was orange for a year. (Apparently he still would be, if he ever bathed.)

line.
* GrumpyBear: He's a Grouch. It's a species trait.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Every now and then, some of the mean-spirited pranks and schemes he pulls tend to backfire, where he may end up being the victim himself. Often happens when he's frustrated when targeting a rather slow-witted character with his pranks.
* {{Jerkass}}: Cranky, rude, and mean. Although as much is allowable on a preschool show.
The Large Lavender Live Hand Anything [[TheWikiRule Muppet host Wiki]] puts it best:
--> Oscar's mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. When a visitor knocks on his trash can -- invariably interrupting him from a nap or an important task -- Oscar greets them with a snarl. He complains that he wants to be left alone, although when he's left entirely to himself, he's dissatisfied -- there isn't anybody around to irritate or complain to.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The true depths
of ''Alphabet Chat''.his jerk nature are often called into question and he can get comically defensive when [[SlaveToPR his reputation as a "true Grouch"]] is threatened.
* KickTheDog: Sometimes takes his rudeness a little too far, as when he upset Big Bird by teasing him with {{How Can Santa Deliver All Those Toys}} questions in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet''.
* LargeHam: He's as snarky as he is a large ham.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
%%* MoralityPet: Slimey
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: There does appear to be an occasional running gag where his intended mean-spirited ways backfire, unwittingly causing pleasant and helpful results for other characters. Much to his dismay, of course.
* TheNicknamer: As far as Oscar is concerned, Bob and Maria are Bright Eyes and Skinny, respectively, and Big Bird is Turkey.
* ThePigpen: Always seen in a trash can, so yeah.
* ThePrankster: Sometimes he plays jokes on other characters.
* SickEpisode:
** At the end of one episode, he contracts Grouch Flu from Grundgetta.
** In one episode, he gets "Kind-itis", which makes him kind and rhymey.
%%* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with [[DistaffCounterpart Grungetta]].
* SlaveToPR: One has to wonder if he'd be so concerned about being a "real Grouch" - or if he'd be so self-conscious anytime he says, does, or thinks something even remotely pleasant - if it weren't for Grouch society constantly stressing how Grouches are ''supposed'' to act.
* SomethingItis: In one episode, he gets a disease called "kind-itis".
* TooImportantToWalk: He's rarely seen walking. When he needs to be transported somewhere, a garbageman named Bruno carries his can. (He does in Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet a few times.)
%%* TrashOfTheTitans
%%* {{Troll}}: He can definitely come off as this at times.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Easily with ''any'' of the nice Sesame Street residents that like being sweet and chummy with him, especially Elmo, Telly, and Maria.
* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this reaction from Leela and Elmo for seeing the Mine-itis outbreak as a cause for celebration.
** The adults give him another one in [[ChristmasSpecial "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street"]] for putting a [[HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys bunch of doubts]] in Big Bird's head about the existence of SantaClaus, which leads to Big Bird disappearing to find out for sure.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Used to be this sort of "friend" to poor Telly.
** Although, they seem to have fallen into a more traditional Type 1 VitriolicBestBuds as of late.
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Often inverted. As you may expect, he does not appreciate being praised by the other characters for doing something less-than-grouchy.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He started out with a rather odd and perpetually sad personality as well as speaking with a rather creepy, echoing, sad voice. It wasn't until when Marty Robinson took over the character that, though still sad occasionally, his personality became more cheerful and his voice had a wider range of emotions.

* NotSoImaginaryFriend: For Big Bird. Everyone assumes that Snuffy is imaginary and even Big Bird thinks this at one point, but they are convinced otherwise later on.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus. Even though almost everyone on the series refers to him by his nickname, his mother usually refers to him by his real name.
* PrecociousCrush: Pre-dating the Elmo and Gina plot (see above), he had a crush on Maria for a while.
* RealAfterAll: He is revealed to the adult cast ''13 years'' after his debut, in order to encourage kids to be more honest with their parents. It was an emotional experience for the characters and actors.

* BizarroUniverse: Grouch society mirrors human society (right down to similar celebrities -- Dan Rather-Not and Donald Grump, for example), but they prefer unhappiness and filth to happiness and cleanliness.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: As explained above, they dislike (often downright ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor condemn]]'') nice and pleasant things, and like things that most other people would find unpleasant. Although a bit odd, it sounds simple enough, right? Well, this also means that they like feeling miserable, and yet the nice things they hate ''make'' them miserable, which they ''like'' and... yeah.

[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/julia_ss.png]]
--> Stacey Gordon (2017-present)

A little girl who has autism, an alternate neurology which some folk consider a disorder. Introduced in 2017 in the wake of increased diagnoses (1 in 68 children) of autism and autism-spectrum disorder conditions.

* {{Adorkable}}: Even in the Sesame Street universe, Julia's mannerisms, playfulness, limited dialogue, and overall cuteness truly stand out.
* BigBrotherWorship: She always cheers for her big brother at his soccer games and loves to play with him.
* BreakoutCharacter: Introduced as the world's first autistic Muppet, she has become an instant hit with audiences and is in almost as much merchandise as the other characters.
* BrokenRecord: Has a bit of echolalia when talking with other characters, but also repeats some of what she, herself, says.
* CatchPhrase: "Play, play, play!"
* CharacterTic: Flapping her arms in excitement.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Described by Abby as doing things "in a Julia sort of way."
* TheCloudCuckoolanderWasRight: When Julia and some of the other characters go on a shape hunt, Julia repeatedly identifies shapes her team is looking for, apparently incorrectly, only for the rest of her team to discover that the shape is incorporated within the larger shaped object. For example, she says "circle," pointing to a stopsign. Her team points out that it's actually an octagon, only to eventually figure out that Julia is referring to the little circles cut out of the stopsign pole, while everyone else is focusing on the yellow tubes outlining them.
* TheCutie: Try not to go "Awwww" when seeing Julia.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her toy rabbit is her comfort object.
* HollywoodAutism: ''Sesame Street'' stops in its tracks to point out how atypical Julia is, and she's portrayed as having stereotypical mannerisms.
* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: As storylines progress about Julia, her characteristics are played up. In her first appearance, for instance, she is participating in a game when she begins jumping up and down. Instead of rejecting Julia, the other characters and Muppets decide that jumping up and down is a lot more fun.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The show's puppets typically only have one articulated arm, but she has both due to the above-mentioned CharacterTic.
* TheQuietOne: Doesn't talk much, as pointed by Elmo.
--> '''Elmo:''' Yeah, Julia doesn't say a lot.
* SecurityBlanket: Her raggedy toy rabbit, which is torn in several places and perhaps looks like it should have been thrown out years ago. But it is her comfort object.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: She has red hair and green eyes. She's also one the few Muppet characters on the show to have a distinct iris color.
* VocalDissonance: She's four years old, but she sounds like a grown woman.

!!Kermit the Frog
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/news_kermit.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:Kermit the Frog]]
--> Jim Henson (1955-1990 [the character predates ''Sesame Street''])\\
Steve Whitmire (1990-2009)[[note]]While 2009 was Kermit's last appearance on the show, Whitmire continued to perform him in other projects until his departure in 2017. The character is now performed by Matt Vogel.[[/note]]

''Series/TheMuppetShow'''s easily flustered host; here Kermit usually plays a roving news reporter in a trench coat. He also often attempts to give lectures to the audience that are inevitably ruined by another character. Creator/{{Jim Henson}}'s definitive role; Kermit and Ernie aren't that different, acoustically speaking. This is especially apparent in Bert and Ernie's ''[[Series/TheMuppetShow Muppet Show]]'' guest appearance, where Ernie appears and speaks immediately after Kermit introduces the pair. See also his entry on Characters.TheMuppetShow.
----
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Kermit is usually friendly and even-tempered, but when he's pushed too far he can get very angry indeed.
* ButtMonkey: Frequently the victim of Grover's bumbling and Cookie Monster's hedonism, among other misfortunes, almost to the point of being TheChewToy.

* ContinuityNod: While preparing to interview Old [=MacDonald=], Kermit tells one of the farmer's pigs, "You know, you remind me of somebody..." (a reference to ''The Muppet Show'''s Miss Piggy).
* CrossOver: Kermit once made routine guest appearances, frequently playing off Grover and Cookie Monster. Alas, the frog seldom appears these days, due mainly to Creator/{{Disney}} owning the rights to the character.
* IAmSong: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51BQfPeSK8k Bein' Green]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAv75mTimRc This Frog]]".
* IfYouCanReadThis: An actual cameraman is named on the slate in the ''Oklahoma!'' sketch.
* IntrepidReporter: During the "Sesame Street News Flash" segments.
* IsThisThingStillOn: A running gag in the news segments.

* StraightMan: To the crazier Muppets.

----

* SpecialPersonNormalName: One of the Oinker Sisters is named "Suie Oinker".

!!Oscar the Grouch
[[quoteright:350:https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/greens_roommates_wall_decals_rmk1479gm_64_1000.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:"I Love Trash!"]]
--> Caroll Spinney (1969-present)
-->Eric Jacobson (understudy, 2014-present)
An irritable, antisocial Grouch who lives in a BiggerOnTheInside trash can with his worm, Slimey, and his elephant Fluffy.
----
* AdaptationalHeroism: Oscar takes up this role in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland when he volunteers to go with Telly, Gordon, Big Bird, Maria, and Cookie Monster to venture to Grouchland and get Elmo's stolen blanket back from Huxley.
* AntiRoleModel: One purpose of the character is to poke fun at irritable people. [[StrawmanHasAPoint Which isn't to say that his irritation isn't justified sometimes.]]
* BigEater
* BigOlUnibrow: Huge eyebrows are a species trait.
* BizarreTasteInFood: He hates foods most would consider nice or healthy, but loves noxious combinations of food that are ''technically'' still edible... just really gross. Like sardine ice-cream. Again, it's a species trait.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often shows shades of this trope.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He was orange for a year. (Apparently he still would be, if he ever bathed.)
* EveryoneHasStandards: Oscar may be a hoarder of most stuff, but Huxley being selfish and keeping everything thing he sees (including Elmo's blanket) and never giving them back is where Oscar draws the line.
* GrumpyBear: He's a Grouch. It's a species trait.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Every now and then, some of the mean-spirited pranks and schemes he pulls tend to backfire, where he may end up being the victim himself. Often happens when he's frustrated when targeting a rather slow-witted character with his pranks.
* {{Jerkass}}: Cranky, rude, and mean. Although as much is allowable on a preschool show. The [[TheWikiRule Muppet Wiki]] puts it best:
--> Oscar's mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. When a visitor knocks on his trash can -- invariably interrupting him from a nap or an important task -- Oscar greets them with a snarl. He complains that he wants to be left alone, although when he's left entirely to himself, he's dissatisfied -- there isn't anybody around to irritate or complain to.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The true depths of his jerk nature are often called into question and he can get comically defensive when [[SlaveToPR his reputation as a "true Grouch"]] is threatened.
* KickTheDog: Sometimes takes his rudeness a little too far, as when he upset Big Bird by teasing him with {{How Can Santa Deliver All Those Toys}} questions in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet''.
* LargeHam: He's as snarky as he is a large ham.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
%%* MoralityPet: Slimey
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: There does appear to be an occasional running gag where his intended mean-spirited ways backfire, unwittingly causing pleasant and helpful results for other characters. Much to his dismay, of course.
* TheNicknamer: As far as Oscar is concerned, Bob and Maria are Bright Eyes and Skinny, respectively, and Big Bird is Turkey.
* ThePigpen: Always seen in a trash can, so yeah.
* ThePrankster: Sometimes he plays jokes on other characters.
* SickEpisode:
** At the end of one episode, he contracts Grouch Flu from Grundgetta.
** In one episode, he gets "Kind-itis", which makes him kind and rhymey.
%%* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with [[DistaffCounterpart Grungetta]].
* SlaveToPR: One has to wonder if he'd be so concerned about being a "real Grouch" - or if he'd be so self-conscious anytime he says, does, or thinks something even remotely pleasant - if it weren't for Grouch society constantly stressing how Grouches are ''supposed'' to act.
* SomethingItis: In one episode, he gets a disease called "kind-itis".
* TooImportantToWalk: He's rarely seen walking. When he needs to be transported somewhere, a garbageman named Bruno carries his can. (He does in Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet a few times.)
%%* TrashOfTheTitans
%%* {{Troll}}: He can definitely come off as this at times.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Easily with ''any'' of the nice Sesame Street residents that like being sweet and chummy with him, especially Elmo, Telly, and Maria.
* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this reaction from Leela and Elmo for seeing the Mine-itis outbreak as a cause for celebration.
** The adults give him another one in [[ChristmasSpecial "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street"]] for putting a [[HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys bunch of doubts]] in Big Bird's head about the existence of SantaClaus, which leads to Big Bird disappearing to find out for sure.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Used to be this sort of "friend" to poor Telly.
** Although, they seem to have fallen into a more traditional Type 1 VitriolicBestBuds as of late.
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Often inverted. As you may expect, he does not appreciate being praised by the other characters for doing something less-than-grouchy.

A slow-talking, elephantlike creature and Big Bird's best friend. He originally wasn't thought to be real, but was revealed in a Season 17 episode.
----
* AbandonedCatchphrase: Mr. Snuffleupagus used to always say "Oh, dear" in a worried voice. Big Bird even lampshaded it once; when Snuffy went missing in one episode and BB called the police (an Anything Muppet) to take a report, part of his description was that he said "Oh dear" a lot.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He started out with a rather odd and perpetually sad personality as well as speaking with a rather creepy, echoing, sad voice. It wasn't until when Marty Robinson took over the character that, though still sad occasionally, his personality became more cheerful and his voice had a wider range of emotions.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Snuffle used to have wide yellow eyes with green sclera and was understandably changed to a different lazy eyed design as the debut appearance was... [[NightmareFuel unsettling, to say the least]].
* TheEeyore: Used to be one of his defining character traits, but he steadily grew out of it [[CharacterizationMarchesOn as time went on]].
* InSeriesNickname: "Snuffy." He calls Big Bird "Bird."
* {{Leitmotif}}: Has a theme tune sometimes.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: When he helps rebuild Big Bird's by blow-drying the mud that holds it together with his snuffle, he claims that his middle name is "Help" and his full name is "Aloysius Help Snuffleupagus".
* MissedHimByThatMuch: In his early appearances, he'd wander off before anyone other than Big Bird could spot him, leading to speculation that he was BB's ImaginaryFriend.
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: For Big Bird. Everyone assumes that Snuffy is imaginary and even Big Bird thinks this at one point, but they are convinced otherwise later on.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: His real name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus. Even though almost everyone on the series refers to him by his nickname, his mother usually refers to him by his real name.
* PrecociousCrush: Pre-dating the Elmo and Gina plot (see above), he had a crush on Maria for a while.
* RealAfterAll: He is revealed to the adult cast ''13 years'' after his debut, in order to encourage kids to be more honest with their parents. It was an emotional experience for the characters and actors.
* SatelliteCharacter: Expectedly only talked to Big Bird due to being his NotSoImaginaryFriend at first. After being proven RealAfterAll, he began interacting heavily with other characters and having family members introduced.

!!Placido Flamingo
--> '''Performer:''' Richard Hunt
He is an opera singing Flamingo. He is introduced by Phil Harmonic. Proud of his talents and not averse to the sound of his own voice, he helped in the introduction of classical music to the series. He is cited, along with the 1957 WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon ''WesternAnimation/WhatsOperaDoc'', as an effective and influential early introduction to the world of opera.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He is based on Music/PlacidoDomingo.
* PutOnABus: He was dropped after Richard Hunt's death in 1992, but continued to appear in recycled segments until 1998. He made a cameo in a 2009 episode, on the front cover of a book bearing Hunt's name.

!!Preston Rabbit
--> Steve Whitmire
He is a postman rabbit who works at the Sesame Street Post Office.
----
* ItWasAGift: Well, he likes to deliver things to other characters. He once tried to give Elmo a sign that reads ''ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ''. Elmo ended up singing the famous song originally sung by Big Bird. At that point, Big Bird and the kids told them that it's not a word, It's the alphabet.

!!SAM the Robot
--> Jerry Nelson (occasionally Caroll Spinney)
One of the early characters on the show, SAM frequently claimed he was perfect, despite all evidence contrasting it .
----
* BrokenRecord: S.A.M. will tell anyone who is around him that Machines Are Perfect... except he'd always get stuck so he'd say "Machines are perfec-are perfec-are perfec-are perfec..." until someone hits him.
* DoAnythingRobot: Efficiently, on the other hand.....
* FunWithAcronyms: His name stands for '''S'''uper '''A'''utomatic '''M'''achine.
* PercussiveMaintenance: In his debut appearance, he arrives on Sesame Street (he meant to go to Mulberry Street), asserting repeatedly that "machines never make mistakes; machines are perfect — are perfect — are perfect." The humans have to thump him hard to make him stop repeating the phrase, for which he thanks them.
* PutOnABus: Mysteriously stopped appearing after the seventh season, although he [[TheBusCameBack returned for the tenth]]
* TinCanRobot: S.A.M. looks like giant tin can. This being ''Sesame Street'', of course, he still has googly eyes and a bowtie.

----

* CoolOldGuy
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: When the first actor played him.

* CoolOldGuy: He was a snarky, funny guy.
* DeathIsASadThing: Played so, ''so'' straight with his death. In doing the episode's defining scene in one take, an unintentional lesson -- that even adults cry and feel deeply saddened when someone they are close to dies, and that oftentimes entire families cry together in times of grief (indeed, several of the adult characters are visibly emotional and on the verge of tears as they explain to Big Bird that Mr. Hooper died and is not coming back...ever) -- made its indelible mark on this episode and earning it critical acclaim.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mr Hooper is somewhat sarcastic but he is a nice person.
* LastNameBasis: As the oldest on the street in his day, he considered this a mark of respect.
* NeverSayDie: A subversion, which is still met with acclaim today; after his actor died, the writer's decided to use the opportunity to directly address death for the show's young audience.
* ShirtlessScene: On the beach, in Hawaii. Obviously not played for {{Fanservice}}.
* SuddenlyEthnicity: Bob wishes him a Happy Hanukkah in ''[[ChristmasSpecial Christmas Eve on Sesame Street]]''.
* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: He was killed off after his actor (Will Lee) died on December 7, 1982.

----
* AbortedArc: She was hooked up with David until the mid-1980s.
** [[WordOfGod According to Louise Gikow, who wrote for various international co-productions]], the reason why the David–Maria romance angle was dropped was due to health problems involving David's actor, Northern Calloway. Calloway had been battling mental illness since the 17th season began in 1985, and by the time the 20th season ended in 1989, he became so ill and ill-looking that he had to leave the show, dying of excited delirium complications only a year later in 1990.

* SpicyLatina: Not normally an example, but she can lose patience a bit more dramatically than most of the other adults: see, for example, her {{The Reason You Suck Speech}} to Oscar in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet'' after he caused Big Bird to go missing.
* TeamMom: When she first joined the show she was more of a CoolBigSis figure while Susan was the TeamMom of the show, but as Maria matured she took on a more motherly role too. In the direct-to-video special where Big Bird gets sick and goes to the hospital, the receptionist asks her "Are you his mother?" and she responds "Not exactly... Sort of... Yeah."
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Oscar. He's normally just as rude to her as to anyone else, and she has no qualms about standing up to him (for example, in the above-mentioned ''Christmas Eve'' scene), but they've shared more friendship moments than he has with any other human. When she gave birth to Gabi, he was the one who drove her to the hospital in his Sloppy Jalopy.
* WackyCravings: She shared and enjoyed a lunch with ''Oscar'' while pregnant.
%%* WriterOnBoard: For a stretch of 20 years.

* CatchPhrase: He says, "Elmo loves you" a lot.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his earlier incarnations in the early Eighties, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sgwDJfBhK8 he was basically a presumably-adult monster with a deeper, nasally, squawky]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0VJtXB4i5A voice who showed up every so often.]] Then, during Richard Hunt's stint, he was like a rowdy caveman (sounded a lot like Two-Headed Monster).

the publishing company for the Beatles' music, attempted to launch a $5.5 million lawsuit against the Children's Television Workshop over the similarities between the series' "Letter B" and the actual group's "Let It Be." Shortly before the case went to trial, Music/MichaelJackson acquired the rights for the group's songs, and dropped the lawsuit. CTW was fined only $50, paid out of the back pocket of series composer Christopher Cerf. Music/PaulMcCartney, who admitted to Cerf that he liked the song, was not involved in the lawsuit.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The group, and its songs, are based on those from the British 1960s rock group Music/TheBeatles. "Letter B" is based on ''Let it Be''; "Thinking of U" is based on "P.S. I Love You" and "Here, There, and Everywhere", and "Hey Food" is based on "Hey Jude".

* CassandraTruth: The adults constantly disbelieved Snuffleupagus was real at first. See TheReveal under ''Mr. Snuffleupagus"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was initially a fully grown idiot with a hick-like SimpletonVoice to match, rather than the innocent 6-year-old child he eventually became.
* CryingCritters: Despite being a bird, he has cried on several occasions.
* TheCutie: Even in the context of ''Sesame Street'' his innocence and sweetness stand out.
* ADogNamedDog: Pretty much.
* ExtremeDoormat: Well, maybe not "extreme", but he has a hard time standing up for himself - he once let Humphrey and Ingrid talk him into giving Radar to Natasha, and he would have lost his nest to Minnie Myna if Chris hadn't helped him.
* GentleGiant: He's a ''Big'' Bird with a good heart.
* HiddenDepths: During the [[VerySpecialEpisode famous episode]] centered on [[DeathIsASadThing the death of Mr. Hooper]], Big Bird draws various caricatures of the adults - of a quality that you may not normally see from a typical 6-year-old.
** Caroll Spinney is a cartoonist and painter in his down time, overlapping with TheCastShowoff.

* PlayingSick: In the book "Nobody Cares About Me", he fakes illness to get attention.
* PolkaDotDisease: In one episode, he breaks out in green dots, a disease called "birdy pox" which is normal for giant birds his age.
* SickEpisode:
** In one episode, he and Zoe both had colds.
** [[spoiler: In the book "Nobody Cares About Me", he actually gets sick after pretending to be sick.]]
** In one episode, he gets Birdy Pox.
** In one episode, he gets a pneumonia-like disease and has to go to hospital.
** In another episode, he gets "memory flu", which is basically just amnesia without brain damage.
* StartMyOwn: Because Oscar wouldn't let him join the Grouchketeers.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Birdseed, which he eats (or in the case of birdseed milkshakes, drinks) in seemingly infinite variations.
* VocalEvolution: Big Bird started off as a fully-grown Village Idiot with a deep, hick-like voice. Over time, however, he became a young child of 5 (or 6, depending on when you were watching the show) with a higher-pitched voice. Because the show reuses its old recordings of songs in later episodes, it can be very jarring to hear Big Bird sing the "Alphabet Song" in his "hick" voice in an episode from c.1975 or later.

He plays tricks on him, makes a fool out of him, steals his snacks or cruelly tempts Bert with snacks before eating them himself, and in general causing him no end of frustration, humiliation and heartache.

!! Benny

to:

* BigFriendlyDog: A big, playful dog.
AdaptationalHeroism: Oscar takes up this role in The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland when he volunteers to go with Telly, Gordon, Big Bird, Maria, and Cookie Monster to venture to Grouchland and get Elmo's stolen blanket back from Huxley.
* BlindingBangs
AntiRoleModel: One purpose of the character is to poke fun at irritable people. [[StrawmanHasAPoint Which isn't to say that his irritation isn't justified sometimes.]]
* DogWalksYou: BigEater
* BigOlUnibrow: Huge eyebrows are a species trait.
* BizarreTasteInFood: He hates foods most would consider nice or healthy, but loves noxious combinations of food that are ''technically'' still edible... just really gross. Like sardine ice-cream. Again, it's a species trait.
* DeadpanSnarker: Often shows shades of this trope.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He was orange for a year. (Apparently he still would be, if he ever bathed.)
* EveryoneHasStandards: Oscar may be a hoarder of most stuff, but Huxley being selfish and keeping everything thing he sees (including Elmo's blanket) and never giving them back is where Oscar draws the line.
* GrumpyBear: He's a Grouch. It's a species trait.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Every now and then, some of the mean-spirited pranks and schemes he pulls tend to backfire, where he may end up being the victim himself. Often happens when he's frustrated when targeting a rather slow-witted character with his pranks.
* {{Jerkass}}: Cranky, rude, and mean. Although as much is allowable on a preschool show. The [[TheWikiRule Muppet Wiki]] puts it best:
--> Oscar's mission in life is to be as miserable and grouchy as possible, and pass that feeling on to everyone else. When a visitor knocks on his trash can -- invariably interrupting him from a nap or an important task -- Oscar greets them with a snarl. He complains that he wants to be left alone, although when he's left entirely to himself, he's dissatisfied -- there isn't anybody around to irritate or complain to.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The true depths of his jerk nature are often called into question and he can get comically defensive when [[SlaveToPR his reputation as a "true Grouch"]] is threatened.
* KickTheDog: Sometimes takes his rudeness a little too far, as when he upset Big Bird by teasing him with {{How Can Santa Deliver All Those Toys}} questions in ''Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet''.
* LargeHam: He's as snarky as he is a large ham.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
%%* MoralityPet: Slimey
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: There does appear to be an occasional running gag where his intended mean-spirited ways backfire, unwittingly causing pleasant and helpful results for other characters. Much to his dismay, of course.
* TheNicknamer: As far as Oscar is concerned, Bob and Maria are Bright Eyes and Skinny, respectively, and Big Bird is Turkey.
* ThePigpen: Always seen in a trash can, so yeah.
* ThePrankster: Sometimes he plays jokes on other characters.
* SickEpisode:
** At the end of one episode, he contracts Grouch Flu from Grundgetta.
** In one episode, he gets "Kind-itis", which makes him kind and rhymey.
%%* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with [[DistaffCounterpart Grungetta]].
* SlaveToPR: One has to wonder if he'd be so concerned about being a "real Grouch" - or if he'd be so self-conscious anytime he says, does, or thinks something even remotely pleasant - if it weren't for Grouch society constantly stressing how Grouches are ''supposed'' to act.
* SomethingItis: In one episode, he gets a disease called "kind-itis".
* TooImportantToWalk: He's rarely seen walking.
When he runs while somebody is walking needs to be transported somewhere, a garbageman named Bruno carries his can. (He does in Series/ChristmasEveOnSesameStreet a few times.)
%%* TrashOfTheTitans
%%* {{Troll}}: He can definitely come off as this at times.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Easily with ''any'' of the nice Sesame Street residents that like being sweet and chummy with
him, that somebody often especially Elmo, Telly, and Maria.
* WhatTheHellHero: He
gets pulled along.
* HiddenEyes: His eyes are covered by his hair.
* SickEpisode: Catches
this reaction from Leela and Elmo for seeing the Mine-itis outbreak as a cold in cause for celebration.
** The adults give him another
one episode. It goes away, but then [[ItMakesSenseInContext in [[ChristmasSpecial "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street"]] for putting a [[HowCanSantaDeliverAllThoseToys bunch of doubts]] in Big Bird's head about the existence of SantaClaus, which leads to Big Bird disappearing to find out for sure.

* CassandraTruth: The adults constantly disbelieved Snuffleupagus was real at first. See TheReveal under ''Mr. Snuffleupagus"
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He was initially a fully grown idiot with a hick-like SimpletonVoice to match, rather than the innocent 6-year-old child he eventually became.
* CryingCritters: Despite being a bird, he has cried on several occasions.
* TheCutie: Even in the context of ''Sesame Street'' his innocence and sweetness stand out.
* ADogNamedDog: Pretty much.
* ExtremeDoormat: Well, maybe not "extreme", but he has a hard time standing up for himself - he once let Humphrey and Ingrid talk him into giving Radar to Natasha, and he would have lost his nest to Minnie Myna if Chris hadn't helped him.
* GentleGiant: He's a ''Big'' Bird with a good heart.
* HiddenDepths: During the [[VerySpecialEpisode famous episode]] centered on [[DeathIsASadThing the death of Mr. Hooper]], Big Bird draws various caricatures of the adults - of a quality that you may not normally see from a typical 6-year-old.

* StartMyOwn: Because Oscar wouldn't let him join the Grouchketeers.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Birdseed, which he eats (or in the case of birdseed milkshakes, drinks) in seemingly infinite variations.
* VocalEvolution: Big Bird started off as a fully-grown Village Idiot with a deep, hick-like voice. Over time, however, he became a young child of 5 (or 6, depending on when you were watching the show) with a higher-pitched voice. Because the show reuses its old recordings of songs in later episodes, it can be very jarring to hear Big Bird sing the "Alphabet Song" in his "hick" voice in an episode from c.1975 or later.

* CloudCuckooLander: Frequently does weird things like talking to a rubber duck.
* ConsultingMisterPuppet: Ernie often talks to his trademark rubber duckie about his problems.
* CouldntFindAPen: Bert asks him to make a shopping list, and the only thing Ernie can find to write with is chocolate pudding. Ernie then makes a list of all the writing implements that he couldn't find. Ernie tacks chocolate pudding onto the end of the list, since he needed to use all the pudding in the apartment to write it out.
-->'''Bert:''' "He's improving. Last time he used spaghetti sauce."
* CrazyPrepared: In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6MpP3PnRdk this skit]].
* TheGadfly: He loves to prank, trick and tease Bert. Much of his random weird behavior is just done to mess with his friend, because it's funny when Bert gets frustrated.
* HiddenDepths: He lays down an ''amazing'' saxophone solo during "Put Down the Duckie."
** He's also a really good painter... even if he ''does'' re-imagine Bert as a beatnik.
* ICantHearYou: "I can't hear you, Bert. I have a banana in my ear."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Well, yeah -- you wouldn't think so, but Ernie is a far bigger jerk than Bert. Watching the ''Bert & Ernie'' skits, it's sometimes surprising to see just how badly Ernie treats his best friend, often for no good reason at all. He plays tricks on him, makes a fool out of him, steals his snacks or cruelly tempts Bert with snacks before eating them himself, and in general causing him no end of frustration, humiliation and heartache. When Ernie still comes across as the most likeable and friendly of the two, it's because, well, he is a genuinely sunny and affable person who just wants to have fun and share a laugh with people. He's never malicious, just a little insensitive.
* ThePrankster: Usually pranks Bert.
* PungeonMaster: This was an especially pronounced trait of his in the first season.
** A good example would be his very first appearance, when he tells Bert he [[ICallItVera calls the bathtub "Rosie"]], and when Bert asks why he replies, "Because every time I take a bath, I leave a ring around Rosie."
* SecurityBlanket: His rubber ducky.
* SickEpisode: He got sick in the book "Nobody Cares About Me".
* SignatureLaugh: "Kshshshshshshshsh!"
* SignatureSong: ''Rubber Ducky, You're the one! You make bathtime lots of fun...''
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: The game "Journey to Ernie" runs on this trope.
* StraightMan: Even though he's normally just the opposite, he's sometimes used as this when paired with characters other than Bert, such as Cookie Monster or the Count.
* VagueAge: While he and Bert live alone, he seems naive like a child. His attitude towards naps changes too, sometimes taking them and sometimes not.
