DEBUT 1987

Professor Dexter Rabbit (or, as he's known to his friends, Professor D. Rabbit) was introduced on Sesame Street in Episode 2303 and appeared until season 20.

He's 98 years old, and knows a little magic from having previously worked with a magician. He's best friends with Garbo, and met Uncle Wally at a juggling school in the Orient.

In Episode 2407 he appears in a segment with The Amazing Mumford in the courtyard. He agrees to be the rabbit that Mumford finally pulls out of a hat on one condition: he wants to pull Mumford out of the hat afterward.

Years later, the puppet was used as an unnamed rabbit (performed by Martin P. Robinson) in Episode 4159, anxious to have his electric teapot fixed at the Fix-It Shop before his tea party. The puppet later made various background appearances on Plaza Sésamo during season 11.
