Renowned for his feats of strength, Herry Monster joined Sesame Street in 1970. He is a strong and clumsy monster with a great sense of humor. He may knock things over, but he is always ready to help fix them.
Herry is a talented athlete and especially enjoys playing baseball and lifting weights. In fact, he's so strong he does not always realize his own strength. He has a tendency to break things just by handling them. But everyone on Sesame Street knows he is a gentle and sensitive monster they can talkto.
Over the years, Herry has sung several songs and was one of the most frequent performers in Prairie Dawn's plays. He also starred in a number of Monsterpiece Theater shows and hosted "Monster Hits," an awards show for Sesame Street's best monster songs. In the 1990s, Herry participated in "Monster Day Care." He would visit a child at a day care center and then tell the mosnters at his own day care about everything he learned there.
Herry's closest friends are Grover, Cookie Monster, Kermit, Bert, and Ernie. He also loves his doll Hercules, who he sang about in the song "Moonshine" with Zoe.
Under his gruff exterior, Herry has a big heart that he gladly shares with all his Sesame Street pals.
