Preston Rabbit appeared on Sesame Street from Season 21 to Season 23. Preston was a rabbit with an inscrutable habit of bestowing presents to almost everyone.

Preston's presents are often unhelpful -- unnecessary, ridiculous or inconvenient. However, he always gives out of the goodness of his heart, so it's hard for other people to get angry with him.

Preston's debut, Episode 2616, is an extended spoof of The Music Man. Preston's clothes and his persistence in giving gifts (rather conning people) spoof the musical's title character, Henry Hill. His name is a take on Robert Preston, the actor who starred in the film version.

The puppet would later be re-used on Sesamstrasse in various roles, mainly as a salesman, such as Reiner Sauberhasi, Knut Köffelström, Hasi Himmelglück and Henry.
