Pogolyi
PERFORMER Tyler Bunch
DEBUT 2014
PATTERN Fat Blue

Bela Pogolyi is the world's greatest (and only) pogostick coach, as seen in Episode 4421 of Sesame Street.

Pogolyi arrives on the street just in time for the Pogo Games and offers to coach Telly Monster. He assures him that if he follows his directions, he can get the Pogo Gold. However, Pogolyi's methods of boinging inhibit Telly from boinging properly, which Pogolyi blames squarely on Telly. When the games begin, Telly tries Pogolyi's methods but scores no points. Telly finally tries it his way and scores higher than everyone else, earning him the Gold. Pogolyi is so impressed he wants Telly to coach him, as he's never actually used a pogostick before.

He is a parody of Olympic gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi.
