PERFORMER Stephanie D'Abruzzo
DEBUT 2010

Bunny is a Grouch, who has sworn to never show her face on Sesame Street. But, as Oscar's sister, she appears in Episode 4237 as a surprise guest for her mother on Grouchy Mother's Day. Mrs. Grouch gave her the name Bunny just to annoy her.

In April 2011, Oscar answered a couple questions about his sister in the following interview:

โ€œWas your mother also a Grouch?

Oh yes, I come from a long line of Grouches. I have a sister, her name is Bunny. Mom named her that just to tick her off. Sheโ€™d rather have had a name like Geezelah or Grumpy, because she is, trust me, a grump.

Do you see her often?

Hopefully not, although it is kind of fun when she comes because we argue the whole time. Grouches like a good argument. Iโ€™m only worried about this because I havenโ€™t been disagreeable enough. I guess I got out of the right side of the bed. Youโ€™re too pleasant. ... And I love being miserable. That makes me happy. But I donโ€™t like being happy, so that makes me miserable. Iโ€™m a mess. Iโ€™m a complex Grouch.[1]โ€
