DEBUT 1969

Tony's illustrated appearance in The Sesame Street 1, 2, 3 Storybook.

Tony was named in the 1973 Muppet Character Book of Jim Henson's Muppets from Sesame Street. He often appears in the company of large, furry monsters, whether he wants to be or not.

He appeared in "Lulu's Back in Town" with Beautiful Day Monster as Lulu. A slightly modified version of the puppet appeared to sing "Windy," also with Beautiful Day Monster. Another sketch opens with him talking on the telephone to Lulu, asking her to a dance. When she can't make it, he goes on to sing the Beatles' song "Help!" and Herry shows up in a wig to be his date.

He was also seen in a sketch as the clerk in a clothing store assisting a woman looking for a blue, furry coat (who ends up buying Cookie Monster when Tony doesn't have anything in stock to match her tastes).
