The Rhymies

The Rhymies were three Anything Muppets with shaggy hair who appeared in a couple of Sesame Street sketches in the late 1970s. Their name derives from the fact that they speak entirely in rhyme.

Their names were Larry (made from a Lavender Anything Muppet), Mary (made from a Green Anything Muppet), and Barry (made from a Fat Blue Anything Muppet). While Mary and Larry had positive attitudes, Barry often complained alot (which sometimes got the other two annoyed).

The Rhymies had various performers, including: Jerry Nelson and Bob Payne as Mary, Richard Hunt and Frank Oz as Larry, and Jim Henson and Jerry Nelson as Barry.
