She's a 3-year-old fairy in training, who attends the Flying Fairy School.(as of Season 40.)²----²* AllLovingHero: Abby sees the best in Oscar, and genuinely doesn't believe that he's that grouchy. That's gotta count for ''something''. ²* AllMythsAreTrue: Abby's mom, Maggie Cadabby, is Cinderella's fairy godmother.²* TheApprentice: Hence [[{{Spinoff}} "Abby's Flying]] [[WizardingSchool Fairy School."]]²%%* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor²%%* BenevolentGenie²* BreakoutCharacter: While only appearing in three episodes of Season 37, she became more prominent as the show went on and proved to be a great addition to the cast. She later gained her own solo segments, appears alongside Elmo in nearly all his guest appearances, and even got her own television special. ²* CallBack: She lives Around the Corner, which is a section of the set which was expanded and retracted.²* {{Catchphrase}}: "That's so magical!"²* CharacterTics: Flies up into the air when excited.²* CheerfulChild: She always has a smile on her face.²* CoolBigSis: Season 47 introduced Rudy, Abby's stepbrother from her mother's remarriage. The two get along great, and tries to emulate her magic.²* FairyTaleMotifs: She is a textbook example of a fairy. Well... okay, aside from being a little fuzzy. ²* GirlishPigtails: Has two pigtails.²%%* GirlyGirl²* GirlyGirlWithATomboyStreak: In "Dress-Up Club", she wants to dress up like a superhero and a pirate. HilarityEnsues (ItMakesSenseInContext).²* IconicSequelCharacter: She was introduced in season 37 (in which she only appeared in three episodes), but she's went on to become one of the most famous Muppets in the franchise, next to Elmo- another sequel character- Big Bird, and Cookie Monster.²* IneptMage: Possibly due to her young age, she frequently blunders her spells, often turning things into pumpkins. Her stepbrother, Rudy, is even worse, and hilarity ensues whenever he gets a hold of his sister's wand.²* {{Irony}}: Abby's mother is the fairy godmother from the ''Literature/{{Cinderella}}'' fairy tale, one of the most infamous depictions of a wicked stepfamily in literature. Abby herself is part of a blended family - her birth parents are divorced, and her mother remarried Freddy Monster, introducing her younger stepbrother Rudy to the show's recurring cast.²* InnocentBlueEyes: One of the few Muppets to actually have irises. ²* LeastRhymableWord: Pumpkin. She always rhymes it with nonsense words in spells to do with pumpkins.²%%* MagicalGirl²%%* MagicMisfire²* PrecisionFStrike: That one time she performed "[[Theatre/{{Hamilton}} Satisfied]]", which includes the line "What the hell is the catch?".²* PunnyName: It's a play on the stereotypical "magic word" Abracadabra. ²* MundaneObjectAmazement: Often thinks normal objects like crayons and tricycles are magic.²* MundaneUtility: In addition to transforming one thing into something completely different or conjuring things out of thin air, her wand also makes a handy backscratcher. ²* NonStandardCharacterDesign: She, along with other fairy characters in the show, is one of the few Muppet characters designed with irises. To quote the Muppet Wiki: ²--> "Abby's design is an intentional departure from the typical Muppet look because [[FishOutOfWater she's not originally from Sesame Street]]. The implication is that the fairies in her old neighborhood look like her." ²* PinkMeansFeminine: Her fur is bubblegum pink. ²* RhymesOnADime: Abby does rhymes whenever casting spells.²* ShoePhone: The secondary use for her wand is to substitute for a cell phone.²* SignatureLaugh: A cute little giggle.²%%* SupernaturalIsPurple²* ToiletTrainingPlot: One book focuses on her learning to use the toilet.²* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Zoe's Tomboy, even though the jewelry-wearing, ballet-loving Zoe is very much a {{Tomboy with a Girly Streak}}.²* TrueBlueFemininity : Her dress. Also her eyes.²* WelcomeEpisode: Her debut.²* WideEyedIdealist: Many small children see their world as a place of tremendous beauty and endless possibilities. Abby is no different.²%%* AWizardDidIt: Close enough. ²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair : ''And'' freckles. Both are pink.²* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Sorry, Abby. "Princess" is not a career title. [[note]] Sesame Street defines a career as "a job that you train for and plan on doing for a long time." [[/note]] Also, "magical" does not mean "exciting" or "fascinating".²* YouthfulFreckles: Is a toddler with freckles.²²!! Alice Snuffleupagus²Snuffy's two-year-old sister.²----²* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Downplayed. Sometimes gets in Snuffy's way, but isn't a complete brat.²* BabyTalk: Has trouble speaking correctly due to her young age.²* CharacterTics: Stares at the wall when sad.²* HairTriggerTemper: Is easily angered due to going through a phase two-year-old Snuffleupaguses go through called the "Snuffle Two's".²* TheKlutz: Sometimes breaks things and/or knocks them over.²* NonSequitur: Sometimes likes to say, "Banana!" randomly.²²!!Baby Bear²[[quoteright:350:]] ²--> David Rudman (1990-present) ²²The smallest of the Three Bears. (Later, the second-smallest of the Four Bears.) He is best friends with Telly Monster.²----²* AlliterativeName: ''B''aby ''B''ear.²* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Although he has a great relationship with Curly, and is usually patient with her, she annoys him every now and then.²* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: "He's a hero, he's a guy... Hero Guy!"²* DemotedToExtra: Once a part of almost every episode from 1993 to 2015, he has been making less and less appearances since.²* ElmuhFuddSyndwome: Pronounces his "r"s as "w"s.²* EmbarrassmentPlot: One episode focused on him being embarrassed because he owns a baby doll and thinks that dolls are for girls.²* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin:²** His imaginary superhero, Hero Guy.²** Baby Bear himself was an example at first, then became a subversion when his younger sister was born.²* FracturedFairyTale: Invoked, in order to get Goldlocks her own bowl of porridge.²* InformedJudaism: The Elmo's World holiday special showed him celebrating Hanukkah and teaching Telly how to play dreidel.²%%* MrImagination:²%%* StalkerWithACrush: Initially, Goldilocks.²* SureLetsGoWithThat: He unwittingly names his sister when he meets her.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Porridge.²* ATrueStoryInMyUniverse: He's the bear from the Goldilocks story.²* TheUnfavorite: DiscussedTrope. Baby Bear feels this way, at first.²²!!Barkley²[[quoteright:350:]] ²--> Toby Towson (1977-1978)\²Brian Muehl (1978-1984)\²Fred Garver (1984-1993)\²Bruce Connelly (1993-present)²²This large, playful Muppet dog is Linda's pet, who understands American Sign Language. When he debuted in Season 9, he was known as Woof Woof. In Season 10, he became Barkley after one episode dealt with changing his name by popular vote. By the start of the new millennium, Barkley hasn't appeared as often, but has been seen a couple times in recent years.²----²* BigFriendlyDog: A big, playful dog.²* BlindingBangs²* DogWalksYou: When he runs while somebody is walking him, that somebody often gets pulled along.²* HiddenEyes: His eyes are covered by his hair.²* SickEpisode: Catches a cold in one episode. It goes away, but then [[ItMakesSenseInContext he turns invisible]].²²!! Benny²--> Performer: Kevin Clash (1992-1998)²A grumpy rabbit.²----²* BerserkButton: Doesn't like being called "bunny" or being touched. ²* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears a coat but no pants.²* HatesBeingTouched: He doesn't like people touching him. He even wrote a song called "Don't Touch Me".²* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: In the series' 25th anniversary special, "Sesame Street All-Star 25th Birthday: Stars and Street Forever!", Benny was the only citizen of Sesame Street who supported Ronald Grump's plan to turn the neighborhood into the Grump Tower, as he wanted to work as the tower's doorman. However, when Grump revealed that he was planning to build a robotic doorman for the project, Benny quickly joined the rest of Sesame Street to stop Grump's plan.²²!!Bert²[[quoteright:350:]] ²--> Frank Oz (1969-2006)\²Eric Jacobson (1997-present) ²²Long-suffering roommate and [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni to Ernie's Red Oni]]. Bert would generally prefer to be left alone with a book than put up with his friend's shenanigans. He also really likes pigeons and oatmeal.²----²* AsideGlance: Similar to [[Creator/LaurelAndHardy Oliver Hardy]], he'll often do one of these in exasperation.²* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' lose his bottle caps or paper clips. ²* {{Bookworm}}: Likes to read, and likes to have quiet when he reads.²* TheBore: According to Oz, he originally considered Bert a very boring character... then made his dullness his definitive character trait.²* ButtMonkey: Put on the receiving end of Ernie's mischief a lot.²* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He openly insulted Ernie in a few early episodes, such as calling him a "ding-a-ling" or a "meatball".²* CharacterTics: When frustrated, he either facepalms, keels over or bangs his head against a desk.²* CollectorOfTheStrange: His paperclip collection. His bottlecap collection also qualifies.²* ComicallySerious: Is rather serious and sometimes has a hard time understanding jokes, which leads to some comedic moments.²* DoesNotLikeSpam: Once shouted out that he hates ice-cream sodas.²* IncrediblyLameFun: Bert loves all sorts of "boring" pastimes such as watching pigeons and collecting paperclips and bottlecaps. He even likes to read books like ''Boring Stories''.²* LampshadeHanging: Count on Bert to point out just how crazy Ernie is being. ²--> [[OhCrap "Oh. Music cue."]]²* LargeHam: He may think he's the OnlySaneMan but can be quite dramatic sometimes. It helps that Creator/FrankOz performs him.²* MundaneMadeAwesome: "LA LA LA, LINOLEUM!" and other mundane lyrics were sung by him during a song about the letter L.²* NakedPeopleAreFunny: At the beginning of ''The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland'', he is seen wearing nothing but a shower cap and a towel, preparing to take a shower. Ernie asks if he thinks he should put clothes on, and he runs off screaming.²* NeatFreak: He likes the apartment tidy and often complains about Ernie making messes.²* NotSoAboveItAll: Sometimes joins in Ernie's songs/games, and some of his insults are a bit wacky (such as "meatball").²* OhNoNotAgain: Often has this reaction when Ernie starts doing something silly.²* PastimesProvePersonality: He enjoys oatmeal, pigeons, and bottlecap & paperclip collecting.²%%* SanitySlippage: In [[ this skit]].²* SayMyName: "ERNIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"²* SickEpisode: One skit has him with a cold, but Ernie does not know who has the cold.²* SignatureLaugh: A staccato, nasal "eheheheheheh!"²* SignatureSong: ''Doing (Coo-Coo) the Pigeon....''²%%* StraightMan: To Ernie.²* TemptingFate: On several occasions, Bert ends up on the receiving end of Ernie's craziness simply by pointing it out.²* ThrowTheDogABone: On odd occasions Bert will actually get through a skit without being the butt of a joke or will even manage to outdo Ernie in one of his annoying hobbies.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Very much likes oatmeal.²* UptightLovesWild: He clearly loves Ernie because of his free-spirited nature, not despite it and because Bert's life would be boring without him. ²* VagueAge: Acts like an adult, but takes naps.²²!!Big Bird²[[quoteright:325:]] ²--> Caroll Spinney (1969-2018)\²Daniel Seagren (understudy in a handful of episodes dating to 1970)\²Matt Vogel (1997-present) ²²An inexplicably large, yellow bird, perpetually stuck at age 6. Mr. Snuffleupagus is his best friend. He lives in a nest near the apartments. ²²International adaptations of the show feature alternate equivalents of the character, who are [[WordOfGod apparently Big Bird's cousins]], including Pino from ''Series/{{Sesamstraat}}'' and Abelardo from ''Plaza Sésamo''.²----²* AmnesiaEpisode: In one episode, he got "memory flu", which was essentially amnesia.²* BinomiumRidiculus: According to one book and an online video, Big Bird's species' scientific name is "Bigus canarius".²* BreakOutCharacter: Is the star of the first official Sesame Street movie ''Follow That Bird'', starred in specials where he travels to China and Japan and is the star of other merchandise items such as storybooks, cassette tapes or records. Possibly the first breakout character before Elmo.²* CassandraTruth: The adults constantly disbelieved Snuffleupagus was real at first. See TheReveal under ''Mr. Snuffleupagus"²* 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.²* CryingCritters: Despite being a bird, he has cried on several occasions.²* TheCutie: Even in the context of ''Sesame Street'' his innocence and sweetness stand out.²* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: In ''Don't Eat the Pictures'', he and Snuffleupagus confront ''Osiris'' who refuses to let a young boy pharaoh go to the afterlife and said outright that the freaking God of the Afterlife was wrong. Repeat: a ''six-year-old'' big bird told off Osiris and '''won'''.²* ADogNamedDog: A big bird named Big Bird.²* 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.²* GentleGiant: He's a ''Big'' Bird with a good heart.²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Or in this case, "Feathers of Gold, Heart of Gold". He is a kind yellow bird.²* 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. ²** Caroll Spinney is a cartoonist and painter in his down time, overlapping with TheCastShowoff.²* InjuredLimbEpisode: In one episode, he sprains his wing and needs to have it in a sling.²* MeaningfulEcho: From the episode involving Mr. Hooper's death²--> '''Gordon:''' Why are you walking that way?[[note]]Big Bird is walking with his head between his legs[[/note]] \²'''Big Bird:''' "Just because." \²... \²(When Big Bird learns of Mr. Hooper's death) \²'''Big Bird:''' "Why does it have to be ''this'' way?" \²({{Beat}}) \²'''Gordon:''' "Big Bird, it has to be this way...because." \²'''Big Bird:''' "Just because?" \²'''Gordon:''' "Just because."²* MeaningfulName: Well duh!²* NamedByTheAdaptation: In some versions of Sesame Street made in other countries than the U.S. that do not have their own version of Big Bird, (as described above) he ''does'' have a name. E.g., in the Brazillian version he's called Garibaldo.²* NiceGuy: He stands out at being very sweet and caring, always trying to help others.²* PlayingSick: In the book "Nobody Cares About Me", he fakes illness to get attention.²* PolkaDotDisease: In one episode, he breaks out in green dots, a disease called "birdy pox" which is normal for giant birds his age.²* SickEpisode:²** In one episode, he and Zoe both had colds.²** [[spoiler: In the book "Nobody Cares About Me", he actually gets sick after pretending to be sick.]]²** In one episode, he gets Birdy Pox.²** In one episode, he gets a pneumonia-like disease and has to go to hospital.²** In another episode, he gets "memory flu", which is basically just amnesia without brain damage.²* StartMyOwn: Because Oscar wouldn't let him join the Grouchketeers.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Birdseed, which he eats (or in the case of birdseed milkshakes, drinks) in seemingly infinite variations.²* 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.²²!!Blue Bird²-->Rick Lyon²²He is a comic book superhero character created by Big Bird.²----²* OneShotCharacter: He only appeared in 2 sketches.²²!!Brad²--> Richard Hunt²²He is Bert's Nephew. He appeared in the sketch where Bert is giving his nephew a bath. But Ernie told Bert that he cannot go into the bathtub with bath toys. He fills up the toys into the tub until gets furious and scolded to Ernie that he cannot give Brad a bath with too much toys.²----²* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry: Well, Bert got angry with Ernie about putting too many toys in the tub.²²!!Bruno²--> Carroll Spinney²²A Garbage man who carries Oscar the Grouch's trashcan.²----²* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: He was retired when the foam interior of the puppet ended up disintegrating after years of storage, and it would have been too expensive to rebuild.²* SuddenlyVoiced: All though Bruno is usually a silent character, He did speak a few times (like in the end of ''Follow that Bird'', He replied to Oscar "Sure, Boss!"). He even sang with The Trashmen with the song, "Put it in the trashcan".²²!!Colambo²--> Joseph Mazarrio²²He is a black a sheep detective who solves the crime of the Fairy Tale / Mother Goose stories.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He is based on ''[[Series/{{Columbo}} Inspector Columbo]]''.²²!! Curly Bear²Baby Bear's toddler sister.²----²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Wears a diaper and a pink bow.²* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Downplayed. While she sometimes annoys Baby Bear, she doesn't do it all the time and they generally get along fine.²* BabySeeBabyDo: When Baby Bear mentions that his parents are going out to dinner, she shouts, "Dinner!".²* BabyTalk: Can't speak 100% properly yet.²* CryingCritters: She cries a lot, even though she's a bear.²* DoesNotLikeSpam: She's the only one in her family not to like porridge.²* FunnyAnimal: Is an anthropomorphic bear.²* MeaningfulName: Was named due to the fact that the fur on her head is curly.²* SiblingRivalry: Downplayed. Her and Baby Bear sometimes argue, but generally get on fine.²* ThirdPersonPerson: Sometimes uses her name instead of "I", although she sometimes does say "I".²* ToiletTrainingPlot: Starts to become potty-trained in "Elmo's Potty Time".²* YouNoTakeCandle: Sometimes she speaks in poor grammar due to her young age.²²!!Davey and Joey Monkey²--> David Rudman (Davey Monkey)\²Joseph Mazarrio (Joey Monkey)²Two famous monkey duos that appeared on Sesame Street in the 80's and 90's.²----²* CatchPhrase: Well, They love "BANANAS!"²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: "BANANAS!"²²!!Ernie²[[quoteright:320:]] ² [[caption-width-right:320:"Kshshshshshshshsh!"]]²--> Jim Henson (1969-1990)\²Steve Whitmire (1993-2014)\²Billy Barkhurst (2014-2017)\²Peter Linz (2017-present)²²An enthusiastic, extroverted prankster who's Bert's roommate and [[RedOniBlueOni Red to Bert's Blue.]] He enjoys taking baths with his rubber duckie.²----²* BathsAreFun: He loves taking baths, which was established in the very first ''Sesame Street'' episode (when he did the "I call my bathtub Rosie" joke), and reiterated with numerous bathtub sketches and songs (including the BreakawayPopHit "Rubber Duckie").²* CloudCuckooLander: Frequently does weird things like talking to a rubber duck or waking up the whole neighborhood with loud off-key opera just so he can know what time it is at night.²* ConsultingMisterPuppet: Ernie often talks to his trademark rubber duckie about his problems.²* 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.²-->'''Bert:''' "He's improving. Last time he used spaghetti sauce."²* CrazyPrepared: In [[ this skit]].²* TheDitz: He's much less intelligent than Bert.²* 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.²* HiddenDepths: He lays down an ''amazing'' saxophone solo during "Put Down the Duckie."²** He's also a really good painter... even if he ''does'' re-imagine Bert as a beatnik.²* ICantHearYou: "I can't hear you, Bert. I have a banana in my ear."²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed.]] Well, yeah -- you wouldn't think so, but Ernie is a far bigger jerk than Bert. Watching the ''Bert & Ernie'' skits as you get older, it's sometimes surprising to see just how poorly 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 tempts Bert with snacks before eating them himself, and in general causing him no end of frustration, humiliation and heartache. [[ He also once woke up the whole neighborhood by singing off-key opera just so he could know what time it was at night]] (and according to one of the shouting neighbors, this isn't the first time he did something like that). 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. The "jerk" part mainly comes from his relationship with Bert, while "the heart of gold" comes from his relationship with most other residents of Sesame Street. He's never malicious, [[InnocentlyInsensitive just a little insensitive]].²* ThePrankster: Usually pranks Bert.²* PungeonMaster: This was an especially pronounced trait of his in the first season. ²** 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."²* SecurityBlanket: His rubber ducky.²* SickEpisode: He got sick in the book "Nobody Cares About Me".²* SignatureLaugh: "Kshshshshshshshsh!"²* SignatureSong: ''Rubber Ducky, You're the one! You make bathtime lots of fun...''²* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: The game "Journey to Ernie" runs on this trope.²* 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.²* 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.²²!!Flo Bear²-->Richard Hunt (1986-1992)\²David Rudman (1992-1993)²She is a ursine writer bear.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: She is based on the French writer Gustave Flaubert.²²!! Goldilocks²The girl from "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". She and Baby Bear are friends, but Baby Bear finds her annoying.²----²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She eats Baby Bear's porridge and breaks his things, but she's not really bad.²* MeaningfulName: She was named after her blonde hair.²* MovingExperience: When she moved across the street in one episode, Baby Bear thought she'd be moving far away.²* VitriolicBestBuds: With Baby Bear. They're friends, sort of, but he is annoyed when she eats his porridge and breaks his stuff.²²!!Grandmama Bear²Baby Bear and Curly Bear's grandma.²----²* CoolOldLady: Apart from that time she treated Baby Bear like a real baby, she's very popular with her grandchildren.²* FunnyAnimal: Is an anthropomorphic bear.²* SickEpisode: Catches a cold in one episode.²²!!Granny Bird²-->Carroll Spinney (1969-2003), Jennifer Barnhart (2018-present)²She is Big Bird's grandmother.²----²* CoolOldLady: A kindly old bird.²²!!Grouches²A group of crusty, monster-like creatures indigenous to Grouchland.²----²* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: This is their culture.²* BigOlUnibrow: As mentioned under Oscar's entry, it's a species trait.²* 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.²* 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. Try not to think about it too hard.²* FilthyFun: Their version of bathing is getting more dirty.²* GrumpyBear: A species of them.²* HatesBaths: Most grouches hate getting clean.²%%* HatesBeingTouched²* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: You occasionally find one that is neat or positive, though never both.²* ThePigPen: The majority of them are slobby.²* PlanetOfHats: Nearly all of them are negative and messy. There may be a few who are positive or neat, but never one who's both.²%%* StopHavingFunGuy²²!! Grungetta²[[quoteright:350:]] ²²Oscar's girlfriend.²----²* HairTriggerTemper: She gets angry easily due to being a Grouch.²²!!Harvey P. Dull²A Muppet who frequently visits the Furchester Hotel, but does not like it.²----²* ButtMonkey: He thinks the hotel has bad service, but actually, he's just the unluckiest guest.²* UnfortunateNames: His surname is Dull.²²!!Honkers & Dingers²--> Various²Two species of Muppet, one with a bicycle horn for a nose and the other with a table bell on top of its head, which they use instead of speaking.²----²* GagNose: Honkers squeeze theirs in order to honk.²* TheUnintelligible: They only speak in honking and dinging.²* ShoutOut: The Honkers are essentially an entire species of [[Creator/MarxBrothers Harpo Marxes.]]²* SignatureSong: Well, Their official song is ''Honk Around the Clock''.²* TheSpeechless: Although they do not speak, Their performers will vary depending on what puppeteer is available.²²!!Hoots the Owl²[[quoteright:350:]] ²--> Kevin Clash (1985-2009), Chris Thomas Hayes (2019)²²An old bluesman and sax player.²----²* ComicallyMissingThePoint: He tells Cookie Monster that cookies are a sometimes food... but doesn't care about Cookie Monster eating stuff that's ''not food''.²* DestinedBystander: He (or, at least, the puppet that would later come to be him) first appeared in a single scene in ''Film/SesameStreetPresentsFollowThatBird''.²* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears a shirt and no pants.²* ALizardNamedLiz: Is named "Hoots" and he's an owl.²* TheOwlKnowingOne: Not ''all''-knowing, but he's wise enough to know you can't play the sax with a rubber duck in your hand, and that carrots are healthier than cookies.²²!!Humpty Dumpty²--> Frank Oz (1976)\²Jerry Nelson (1992)²²An egg from the famous nursery rhyme. He was interviewed Kermit on Sesame Street news. He later appeared on episode 3076 and had so many falls.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Well, he is based on the famous nursery rhyme: Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall....²²!! Irvine²[[quoteright:350:]] ²²Oscar's niece.²----²* BabyTalk: Can't speak in full sentences yet.²* BrattyHalfPint: Is just as cranky as her uncle.²* SickEpisode: Gets the "grouch flu" in one episode.²* VagueAge: Described as a baby but can say quite a few words and walk quite well, however, she's clearly very young.²²!!Isabelle²A small creature from the Furchester Hotel.²----²* PunnyName: She got the name because she "is a bell".²²!!Jackman Wolf²--> Jerry Nelson²²The VJ wolf who hosts ''The Sesame Street Rock and Roll Request Show''.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He is based the late radio announcer Wolfman Jack.²²!!Julia²[[quoteright:350:]] ²--> Stacey Gordon (2017-present)²²A 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.²----²* {{Adorkable}}: Even in the Sesame Street universe, Julia's mannerisms, playfulness, limited dialogue, and overall cuteness truly stand out. ²* BigBrotherWorship: She always cheers for her big brother at his soccer games and loves to play with him. ²* 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. ²* BrokenRecord: Has a bit of echolalia when talking with other characters, but also repeats some of what she, herself, says.²* CatchPhrase: "Play, play, play!"²* CharacterTic: Flapping her arms in excitement.²* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Described by Abby as doing things "in a Julia sort of way."²* 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.²* TheCutie: Try not to go "Awwww" when seeing Julia. ²* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Her toy rabbit is her comfort object.²* GracefulLadiesLikePurple: She is a cute, quirky girly-girl, who's signature outfit includes a violet jumper dress.²* HollywoodAutism: ''Sesame Street'' stops in its tracks to point out how atypical Julia is, and she's portrayed as having stereotypical mannerisms.²* 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.²* NiceGirl: She's a very nice and friendly person.²* NonStandardCharacterDesign: The show's puppets typically only have one articulated arm, but she has both due to the above-mentioned CharacterTic.²* TheQuietOne: Doesn't talk much, as pointed by Elmo.²--> '''Elmo:''' Yeah, Julia doesn't say a lot.²* 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.²* 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.²* VocalDissonance: She's four years old, but she sounds like a grown woman. ²²!!Kermit the Frog²[[quoteright:350:]] ² [[caption-width-right:350:Kermit the Frog]]²--> Jim Henson (1955-1990) [[note]] The character predates ''Sesame Street''. [[/note]] \²Steve Whitmire (1990-2009)[[note]]While 2009 was Kermit's last appearance on the show under Steve Whitmire, he continued to perform him in other projects until his departure in 2017. The character is now performed by Matt Vogel.[[/note]] \²Matt Vogel (2017-Present) [[note]] Matt Vogel began portraying Kermit in 2017 for Disney’s ''Muppet-''related media but didn’t portray him on ''Seasame Street'' until 2019.²[[/note]]²²''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.²----²* BewareTheNiceOnes: Kermit is usually friendly and even-tempered, but when he's pushed too far he can get very angry indeed.²* ButtMonkey: Frequently the victim of Grover's bumbling and Cookie Monster's hedonism, among other misfortunes, almost to the point of being TheChewToy.²* CatchPhrase: "Heigh-ho, Kermit theee Frog here at Sesame Street News..."²** PhraseCatcher: Grover's "HEYYYYY, FROGGY BAYBEEEEE!" [[SmackOnTheBack backslap-greeting]].²* CallBack: He makes a surprise appearance in "Elmo's World: Frogs", where he is shown [[CivilizedAnimal lounging in his apartment]]. He also returned for 2019’s 50th Anniversary Special.²* CommutingOnABus: He was a regular in season 1, but concern over his appearances in commercially-oriented non-''Sesame'' media[[note]]Specifically when Creator/{{ABC}} picked up the pre-''Sesame'' ''Film/HeyCinderella'' and aired it in April 1970, with some TV critics incorrectly assuming it was a Children's Television Workshop production, accusing CTW of betraying the educational mission of ''Sesame Street''[[/note]] led him to get dropped in season 2. But beginning in season 3, Kermit came back in more of a FakeGuestStar role, showing up sometimes for song sequences and sketches (often with Grover and Cookie Monster). Alas, the frog seldom appears these days, due mainly to Creator/{{Disney}} owning the rights to the character. ²* 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).²* IAmSong: "[[ Bein' Green]]" and "[[ This Frog]]".²* IfYouCanReadThis: An actual cameraman is named on the slate in the ''Oklahoma!'' sketch.²* IntrepidReporter: During the "Sesame Street News Flash" segments.²* IsThisThingStillOn: A running gag in the news segments.²* LoudGulp: The idea of a frog eating a fly makes him nauseous.²* SomewhereAHerpetologistIsCrying: This is Zigzagged in one scene, in which Bob lists frog facts, and Kermit insists that frogs act more like people, with human diets and apartment buildings.²* StraightMan: To the crazier Muppets.²²!!Leo Birdelli²!!!'''Peformer:''' Jerry Nelson²²He is a bird salesman who was attempting to trade the drawing of Mr. Hooper by Big Bird for more Birdseeds. But Big Bird refuses to to do so. Because the drawing was a tribute to his death.²----²* TravelingSalesman: Well, he is.²²!!Little Bird²-->Fran Brill²²She lives on a tree in front of 123 Sesame Street, and was a little friend of Big Bird.²----²* ADogNamedDog: A bird with "bird" in its last name.²²!!Mama and Papa Bear²The parents of Baby Bear and Curly Bear.²----²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Papa Bear wears a hat and tie.²* FunnyAnimal: They're both anthro bears.²* GoodParents: They try to do what's best for both their cubs.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: They like porridge as much as their son does.²²!!Martians/Yip-Yips²--> Various²Jellyfish-like, hovering aliens with antennae, severe underbite, and a distinctive "yip yip yip yip uh-huh uh-huh" sound.²----²* AmusingAlien: Often seen doing funny things trying to figure out how Earth things work.²* FishOutOfWater: In their first few years they were very unfamiliar with Earth, to the point where they spent most of their time attempting to communicate with inanimate objects.²* IncrediblyLameFun: They dance to radio static.²* InnocentAliens: They're just confused tourists.²* IntangibleMan: They often enter scenes by phasing through walls.²* SpecialPersonNormalName: The primary two are named "Joe" and "Bob." Although in the game show sketch ''Bring that Thing'', Guy Smiley addressed them as "Stevie" and "Jonathan" Martians.²* StarfishAliens: Flying aliens with tentacles and huge mouths.²²!!Meryl Sheep²-->Camille Bonora (1987-1990)²²A sheep who also happens to be an accomplished actress, she heads the Meryl Sheep School of Acting, and counts Creator/SusanSarandon among her students.²----²* DistaffCounterpart: Created as a female equivalent to Placido Flamingo, likewise being an animal parodying a famous performer.²* FurryFemaleMane: She has a rather human-like head of hair (variously blonde and brown) along with her wool coat.²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Obviously based on Creator/MerylStreep.²* NonSpecificallyForeign: She has a vaguely Eastern European accent, inspired by Creator/MerylStreep's role in ''Film/SophiesChoice''.²* VerbalTic: "''Ja'', ''ja''..."²²!! Mrs Grouch²Oscar's mother, and also the mother of his sister Bunny and brother Ernest.²----²* DotingParent: Loves her children in a weird grouchy way.²²!! The Oinker Sisters²-->Various²The three singing pig trios who sang ''The New Way To Walk''.²----²* ALizardNamedLiz: Their last name is "Oinker", which is because they are pigs and pigs say "oink".²* SpecialPersonNormalName: One of the Oinker Sisters is named "Suie Oinker".²²!!Oscar the Grouch²[[quoteright:350:]] ² [[caption-width-right:350:"I Love Trash!"]]²--> Caroll Spinney (1969-2018)²-->Eric Jacobson (2015-present)²An irritable, antisocial Grouch who lives in a BiggerOnTheInside trash can with his worm, Slimey, and his elephant Fluffy.²----²* 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. ²* 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.]]²* BigEater²* BigOlUnibrow: Huge eyebrows are a species trait.²* 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. ²* DeadpanSnarker: Often shows shades of this trope. ²* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: He was orange for a year. (Apparently he still would be, if he ever bathed.)²* EveryoneHasStandards: Oscar may be a hoarder of most stuff and hates everything cheery, but Huxley being selfish, ruining his beautiful Grouchland, as well as keeping everything thing he sees (including Elmo's blanket) and never giving them back is where Oscar draws the line. ²* GrumpyBear: He's a Grouch. It's a species trait.²* 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.²* {{Jerkass}}: Cranky, rude, and mean. Although as much is allowable on a preschool show. The [[TheWikiRule Muppet Wiki]] puts it best:²--> 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. ²* 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. ²* 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''.²* LargeHam: He's as snarky as he is a large ham. ²%%* ManipulativeBastard²%%* MoralityPet: Slimey²* 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.²* TheNicknamer: As far as Oscar is concerned, Bob and Maria are Bright Eyes and Skinny, respectively, and Big Bird is Turkey.²* ThePigpen: Always seen in a trash can, so yeah.²* ThePrankster: Sometimes he plays jokes on other characters.²* SickEpisode:²** At the end of one episode, he contracts Grouch Flu from Grundgetta.²** In one episode, he gets "Kind-itis", which makes him kind and rhymey.²%%* SlapSlapKiss: His relationship with [[DistaffCounterpart Grungetta]].²* 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. ²* SomethingItis: In one episode, he gets a disease called "kind-itis".²* 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.)²%%* TrashOfTheTitans²* {{Troll}}: He can definitely come off as this at times, especially when Telly is involved. ²* VitriolicBestBuds: Easily with ''any'' of the nice Sesame Street residents that like being sweet and chummy with him, especially Elmo, Telly, and Maria.²* WhatTheHellHero: He gets this reaction from Leela and Elmo for seeing the Mine-itis outbreak as a cause for celebration.²** 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.²* WithFriendsLikeThese: Used to be this sort of "friend" to poor Telly. ²** Although, they seem to have fallen into a more traditional Type 1 VitriolicBestBuds as of late. ²* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Often inverted. As you may expect, he does not appreciate being praised by the other characters for doing something less-than-grouchy.²²!! Ovejita²Murray's lamb sidekick, who speaks only in Spanish.²---²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Wears a bow in her wool.²* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Is a purple sheep.²* TalkingAnimal: Is pretty much a normal lamb, but she speaks Spanish.²²!! Ralphie²Baby Bear's talented parrot.²----²* TheAce: Can play fetch, identify shapes, speak English, Spanish and Hamster, and even make fruit salad.²* PollyWantsAMicrophone: He once said a whole sentence in Spanish, complementing Maria's blouse.²* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Apparently, he speaks fluent Hamster.²²!!Mr. Snuffleupagus²[[quoteright:350:]] ²->Front end:²--> Jerry Nelson (1971 - 1978)\²Michael Earl Davis (1978 - 1980)\²Martin P. Robinson (1980 - present)²->Back end:²-->Richard Hunt (1971-1975)²-->Peter Friedman (1976-1978)²-->Brian Muehl (1979)²-->Frank Kane (1979)²-->Bryant Young (1979-present)²²A 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.²----²* 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. ²* 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.²* 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]].²* TheEeyore: Used to be one of his defining character traits, but he steadily grew out of it [[CharacterizationMarchesOn as time went on]]. ²* GentleGiant:²* InSeriesNickname: "Snuffy." He calls Big Bird "Bird."²* {{Leitmotif}}: Has a theme tune sometimes.²* 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".²* 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. ²* 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.²* 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.²* PrecociousCrush: Pre-dating the Elmo and Gina plot (see above), he had a crush on Maria for a while. ²* 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.²* 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.²* ShrinkingViolet: The reason that none of the adults ever saw him was because of his shyness. He seems to outgrown this after being revealed.²²!!Placido Flamingo²--> '''Performer:''' Richard Hunt²He 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.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He is based on Music/PlacidoDomingo.²* 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.²²!!Preston Rabbit²--> Jim Martin²He is a postman rabbit who works at the Sesame Street Post Office.²----²* 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.²²!!SAM the Robot²--> Jerry Nelson (occasionally Caroll Spinney)²One of the early characters on the show, SAM frequently claimed he was perfect, despite all evidence contrasting it .²----²* 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.²* DoAnythingRobot: Efficiently, on the other hand.....²* FunWithAcronyms: His name stands for '''S'''uper '''A'''utomatic '''M'''achine.²* 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.²* PutOnABus: Mysteriously stopped appearing after the seventh season, although he [[TheBusCameBack returned for the tenth]]²* TinCanRobot: S.A.M. looks like giant tin can. This being ''Sesame Street'', of course, he still has googly eyes and a bowtie.²* VanityLicensePlate: He has one on his back that says "ABC-123".²²!!Sammy the Snake²--> Jim Henson²He appears in the song ''Hello Sammy'' with singer Creator/CarolChanning and a group Letter Ss as chorus girls in a spoof of Theatre/HelloDolly.²----²* OneShotCharacter: He never appeared outside the song.²²!!Shelly the Turtle²--> Martin P. Robinson²²He is a friendly but a slow moving turtle.²----²* PunnyName²* SignatureSong: He sings ''I Get There''.²²!! Slimey²[[quoteright:350:]] ²Oscar's pet worm.²----²* FilthyFun: Likes to play in mud due to being a worm.²* HiddenDepths: Is a cute little talking worm, who's also been to space.²* SpaceEpisode: His trip to the moon took up several episodes.²²!! Sloppy²Slimey's baby sister.²----²* MeaningfulName: Was named because she was born in the Sloppy Jalopy.²²!!The Squirelles²--> Various²They are a trio of singing squirrels who sing various doo-wop songs.²----²* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: They are based on Music/TheShirelles.²* TalkingAnimal: Are mostly normal squirrels but they can talk.²²!!Watson the Dog²--> Steve Whitmire²He is Sherlock Hemlock's sidekick dog who appears in every ''Mysterious Theatre'' skit.²----²* AnimalTalk: He can only bark.²%%* DogWalksYou²²!!Wolfgang the Seal²--> Kevin Clash (1988-2013)²He is Uncle Wally's pet seal. He debuted on season 20 (1988-1989) and has continued to appear after his owner after Uncle Wally left the show in Season 23 (1991-1992).²----²* AnimalTalk: He can only bark.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Loves to eat fish.²²!!Miscellaneous Muppets²''Sesame Street'' features a vast array of other Muppets ranging from animals, letters, and numbers to bathtubs and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Singing Food.]]²----²%%* AnimateInanimateObject²%%* EverythingTalks²* LetsMeetTheMeat: Singing Food will cheerfully discuss how nutritious it is.²----
