Cyranose de Bergerac, a poet with a foot-long nose, tries to help the Queen of France finish her poem in a "Monsterpiece Theater" segment on Sesame Street. Unfortunately, the word used to finish it is the word that makes him very angry which is "nose." Hearing that word makes him go into a frenzy, swishing his nose back and forth like a sword. The segment was written by Tony Geiss.

After this segment aired, Cyranose appeared in a few episodes from Season 24 through season 27, beginning with Episode 3010. He also made a brief cameo in an Elmo's World episode about noses.

The character was inspired by Edmond Rostand's 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac.
