Herry1970s

In Season 3, Herry's nose color changes from blue to purple. The puppet has a fuller, bushier eyebrow, with a mechanism allowing it to move up and down.
Herry80s
Sesame Street
Season 10
(1978-1986)
The design is similar to the previous puppet with some minor changes; the most evident being a slightly thinner eyebrow and nose, both of which will continue to morph and decrease in size over the next couple of decades.
Herry01
Sesame Street
Season 18
(1986-1992)
Herry's nose now connects to the tip of his brow (which is evident when it’s fully raised), filling the gap in-between. Because of this, his nose is now somewhat tear-drop shaped.
Herry90s
Sesame Street
Season 20
(1988-1997)
Herry is resculpted with a more cheerful expression and a different head shape, resulting in a smaller mouth and a shorter eyebrow. His nose has also gotten shorter, while his fur is longer, shaggier, and a more vibrant blue.


This version of Herry was previously used as his father in "Herry's Family Song" and was also seen in Elmo's World: Happy Holidays!, several Macy's Parades and in Episode 4206.

Sesame Street
Season 28
(1996)
This Herry puppet (seen in "Up and Down") has a less-rounded head than the previous, with wilder fur on his face, eyebrow that extends beyond his eyes, a larger nose, and a mouth that does not open and close as widely as the previous.
Herry00s
Sesame Street
Season 29
(1997-2016)
Herry is modified with a head shape resembling the 70’s puppet and a less-obstructed mouth. His eyebrow is at its thinnest.

(2016-present)
A new Herry Monster puppet is constructed, with a much thicker nose, slimmer head, and a lower jaw sculpted to fit against his over hanging nose. The puppet has a raised forehead to allow for the eyebrow mechanism to return. The eyebrow itself is returned to a thickness that hasn't been seen since the '80s.
