Onky is a blue humanoid Muppet character who first appeared in a series of ads for On-Cor Frozen Foods.
A series of three ads were produced featuring Onky with a human grocer played by Bill Gibson.
“ The puppet style was a departure from the hand and rod puppets Henson had been using – Onky had “live-hands” meaning the puppeteer put his hand in the puppet’s glove-like hand, enabling the character to easily pick up things (like the product being advertised) and give a more realistic performance. While Onky’s arms were short and almost flipper-like, making for an awkward kind of movement, later in the year, Jim and his new collaborator Don Sahlin created a live-hand puppet that was extremely expressive: Rowlf the Dog. ”
