Apparently in the early seasons of Sesame Street, Mr. Snuffleupagus was only seen by Big Bird. Gordon, Susan, Mr. Hooper, Grover, not even grouchy Oscar caught a glimpse of this giant, cocoa wooly mammoth. The problem was that Mr. S would get in all kinds of trouble like eating someone else's cookie or breaking the letter J. Then he’d sneak off leaving Big Bird to take the blame. This went on ‘til episode 2096 (aired November 18th, 1985). The plot had Big Bird tricking Snuffy into revealing himself to the entire neighborhood. Big Bird was finally vindicated.

Incidentally, that episode was brought to you by the letter L.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. ahahhahaha! I wondered what happened there. We were watching Sesame Street the other day (my toddler and I) and noticed everyone talking to Snuffy. BTW can I KILL Abby Cadabby?

  2. You gotta hand it to the bird, he played a playa.

  3. For a snuffleupagus, he wasn't too bright. But I too loved snuffy. (Big Bird, however, is rather annoying.)

  4. Take it easy on Snuffy... He wasn't that bad.... Did you know that Snuffy used to have highlighter yellow eyes that didn't blink?

    And they filmed an episode where Snuffy's parents were getting a divorce, but the episode never aired....
