Knickerbocker made a line of Sesame Street talking plush and talking rag dolls from 1976 to 1978. The dolls had pull-strings on the back that would play sound clips.
The talking rag dolls -- Ernie, Bert and the Count -- had four sayings each, and the talking plush -- Cookie Monster, Grover and Oscar the Grouch -- each had six sayings.
