The Kate Pierson Muppet was the back-up singer in the song "Furry Happy Monsters" on Sesame Street.

The real Kate Pierson is the lead singer of the band The B-52s. She collaborated with R.E.M. on "Shiny Happy People," the song spoofed by "Furry Happy Monsters".

Notes

  • The character was erroneously referred to as "Kate Monster" in a profile on CTW.org.[1] Ironically, D'Abruzzo would go on to play a character named Kate Monster in Avenue Q.

  • Kate Pierson was also spoofed as a lobster in "Rock Lobster".
