Shout Outs: Thanks to Bob McGrath for the interview and Joanna and Chris for the feedback!
Aww, I was raised on Sesame Street! I’d say that one of my favorite characters was Snufalufagus – he always seemed like he’d give a great hug, and was a great friend to Big Bird :-)
Snuffy was a great and underrated side character. Another one of mine was Guy Smiley!
