Manny is a talent agent who appeared in a Sesame Street insert. Like most talent agents in the Muppet world, Manny is a true egalitarian, as his client roster includes a banana (Karen Prell) and a tiger (Michael Earl), both seeking work. Upon finding an ad from the circus, who require something yellow with fur and black stripes, he sensibly dresses the banana to match the description, while the tiger tries to convince Manny he's better suited. When another client requests a banana for a cereal commercial, the agent recommends the tiger, who faints.

    • I might go for the latter. There could be some other Jim Henson character named Manny we've yet to uncover.
    • Not as many agents named Manny as Bernies, but getting there.
