The Bellhop (voiced by Gregg Berger) appeared in a series of animated segments on Sesame Street beginning in the late 1980s. A tireless hotel worker, the bellhop was continually asked by his manager to perform various tasks, always illustrating numbers.
The segments were directed by Steven Dovas at Michael Sporn's studio. The backgrounds have a distinctive Art Deco style similar to posters from the 1920s-30s.
