In 2014, Funko announced a partnership with Sesame Workshop to create Sesame Street vinyl figures, beginning with a Super Grover figure that was first released as an exclusive at New York Comic Con and later sold at retail. More figures were released in 2015, including Bert, Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, and Mr. Snuffleupagus. A second series of figures, including Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and Count von Count, was released in Spring 2016. A Season 1 orange Oscar variant was released the same year as an Entertainment Earth exclusive, and later also sold as an Underground Toys exclusive.
Flocked variants of the figures were also available in limited numbers: Cookie Monster from New York Comic Con, Bert, Ernie, Elmo, and Big Bird from Barnes & Noble and from Underground Toys, and alternatively with "2015 Pop Asia stickers," and Snuffy from San Diego Comic-Con and alternatively with "2015 Summer Convention Exclusive" stickers.
Funko also produced versions of Bert and Ernie as their mascot, "Freddy Funko", numbered 1/400.
