PERFORMER Chris Knowings
DEBUT 2007

Chris Robinson is the nephew of Gordon and Susan on Sesame Street, who first appeared in Season 38. Chris moves to Sesame Street in a 2007 episode and seeks a job to buy textbooks for school, but has little luck with his first three attempts.

  1. Count von Count wants to hire someone to exercise so he can count the exercises without paying the person.
  2. Cookie Monster wants a salesman to sell cookies, but can't bear to allow anyone to buy them.
  3. Horatio the Elephant wants a dance partner to work for peanuts instead of money.

Just as Chris is about to give up for the day, he sees Alan put a "Help Wanted" sign outside the window of Hooper's Store, and is hired as Alan's newest assistant. It is revealed in a 2010 episode that Chris has a fraternal twin sister named Christy. Chris shares the same birthday as his actor, February 25, according to the "Ask Elmo" interview on Sesame Street's YouTube channel.
