Final Results of the Recent Sesame Street Muppet Poll

With over 40% of the vote, Grover was chosen as the favorite Sesame Street Muppet in the most recent poll. Take that Elmo!

I was a little disappointed that two of my favorites as a kid (Bert and Ernie) didn't perform better in the poll. Maybe voters were hating on Ernie because he had a hit record once ("Rubber Duckie"). As for his roomie, voters might have been reluctant to cast their lot with him because of the Bert is Evil rumors.

Here are the final results:

Grover- 44%
The Cookie Monster- 33%
Kermit the Frog- 32%
Oscar the Grouch- 25%
Count von Count- 21%
Big Bird- 19%
Elmo and Mr. Snuffleupagus- 16% each
Bert- 12%
Ernie- 8%
Other- 4%

Here is a 1975 clip of the winning Muppet Grover doing his "Near and Far" sketch:
