He often appeared in Sesame Street News Flash segments, showing off his latest inventions to Kermit the Frog. These were always remotes from Dr. Price's "far-off island laboratory," which may explain why he kept inventing items that already existed, or discovering known creatures such as rabbits. His ineptitude was further emphasized by his constant tripping, due to a very long labcoat (as in a 1983 episode where he "discovers" Snuffleupaguses).
Eventually, Dr. Price became a regular in street scenes, where he usually created complicated machines or conducted ridiculous experiments. The only known time that Dr. Price invented something original that actually works came in a 1986 episode, where he combined various items to create an invention that can dry towels, scratch a dog's ears, holds flowers, plays music, and gives one a place to sit down.
His name is a pun on the Nobel Prize.
