DEBUT 1984
PATTERN Fat Blue Live Hands

Mario is an Anything Muppet boy, who appeared in several episodes and inserts on Sesame Street during Season 16.

In one segment, Mario writes a letter to his Aunt Polly when the point of his pencil breaks. Mario finds the pencil useless without it's point and leaves it idle while looking for his pencil sharpener. Then, the Two-Headed Monster happens by and explores different uses for the pencil (as a magic wand, a conductor's baton, etc.). (First: Episode 2096)

He also appears in Episode 2062, where Gordon helps him read the words "mop" and "tub" by singing "Sound It Out." In a segment for Episode 2034, he and another Anything Muppet named Crystal (Pam Arciero)[1] perform breathing exercises in the arbor.
