Telly

Ladies and gentlemen, it's Telly Monster. Telly is basically Sesame Street's version of a film extra. He is not one of the main stars like Big Bird, Elmo or even Grover. He's just fits into the background. Poor Telly.
This page says "X-ray" at the top. The illustration seems to say a lot more.
The obvious possibility is that this shows an x-ray of Telly's chest revealing that he has a heart, but no ribcage to protect it.
Still, the look on his face tells a different story.
Perhaps it isn't an x-ray at all; rather it's a giant "X" painted across Telly's heart to show either:

A: Telly has no heart
B: Nobody loves Telly, or
C: Telly is not the answer provided by the hundred people surveyed for the "Family Feud"

A, B, and C are ALL better than the possibility that it is a REAL chest x-ray, because without a ribcage you could toss a beach ball at Telly and his chest would explode.

  1. To me, Telly always looked like one of Sesame Street's honkers who lost his horns in a fight.

    I never watched Sesame Street. I would never let my kids a show with so many eskimos on it.

    X marks the spot... that makes Telly cry.

    This is the word of Todd.

    Publicly I hate Tellie in Outer Space, but secretly I love it.

    Is Telly new on Sesame Street? I don't recall seeing him as a youngster.

    Thanks for the tip, Sweetie. I will be watching Sesame Street looking for the beach ball. I will have my soap and wash cloth ready.
