On Sesame Street , Mr. Snuffleupagus has been Big Bird’s best friend for 45 times. Generations of children have adored Snuffy for his gentleness, but little do they know that everybody’s favorite Muppet pachyderm harbors a dark — carnivorous — side.
Many years ago, the cast and crew of Sesame Street were celebrating a season wrapping party with their families. During the opening slapstick routine, Snuffy was allocated the role of emcee, but the anxious Muppet just wasn’t up to snuff and continued screwing up his lines. Several snafu later, Mr. Snuffleupagus developed so flustered that he straight up feed one of the children in the audience.
Of course, this was staged( as it’s a universal truth that no Muppet can be truly evil ). Snuffy’s victim was a Sesame Street cameraman’s nephew who agreed to be sacrificed for the sake of slapstick. According to staff writer Annie Evans, the joke came to fruition a year later 😛 TAGEND
“At the next season wrapping party, Snuffy came on to start the indicate again, but he wasn’t feeling well. He had a tummy ache for some strange reason. Suddenly, he started to heave, and he ‘threw up’ the same boy from last season , now wearing a tattered shirt and contained within goo.”
And if that story failed to give you shiverings, behold Mr. Snuffleupagus’ earliest appearances, which fell somewhere between “demonically possessed stack of ground beef” and “sentient shag carpet.”
Don’t worry children, Snuffy is still quite fluffy . i > b>
