Can You Tell Me How To Get To Sesame Street?
Caroll Spinney, the actor who played Big Bird since the beginning, described the character as not looking "too keen." Spinney said the bird was "one of the ugliest things" he had ever seen.
Cookie Monster used to have big pointy teeth, although this was when the puppet was used in commercials before the beginning of "Sesame Street."
Ernie had a purple and orange shirt, and has a purple nose. Bert had an immobile unibrow and his hair appeared to be unkempt.
Grover sounded like Cookie Monster and had greenish-brown fur and a red nose.
Oscar the Grouch was orange.
Mr. Snuffleupagus used to be unintentionally super scary looking. Snuffy had yellow slits for eyes that made him look like a monster and had a much more ghastly body with less padding.
Telly Monster initially had antennae coming out of his head and his eyes would spin whenever he watched television.
