Sesamstrasse020-(Samson-and Horst-Janson-in-the-kitchen)
PERFORMER Horst Janson
DEBUT 1979

Horst was one of the main characters on Sesamstrasse, the German version of Sesame Street, for some of the first half-decade of the show (1979-1983). He was played by Horst Janson, and even though the character's last name was never revealed, the show made it appear as if the actor was basically playing himself.

He was friends with Muppet characters Samson, Tiffy, Uli von Bödefeld and Finchen, and was often paired with human characters Ilse and Ute.

Because the street scenes were repeated in new episodes for several years after, and intermixed with newly produced material, it appeared as though he "lived" on the street well into the early 1990s.
