Marty in episode 1003.

Marty appeared on Sesame Street in the early 1970s in a variety of sketches and street scenes. He first appeared in Episode 0171 where he tried to convince Bob he was from the planet Mars.

Perhaps most notably, due to its frequent reuse, Marty performed "Has Anybody Seen My Dog?" with Grover, in which he laments over the loss of his beloved pet. Grover tries to help Marty look for his dog, but instead finds other animals. Marty reprised the song on various albums (with Grover finding different animals), and again on the Sesame Street Fever album (where he and Grover search for his dog at the disco).

Segments with Marty include singing a cover of "The Word" by The Beatles with Little Jerry and the Monotones (First: Episode 0197), a solo insert where he makes some shapes using a stray piece of chain he finds (First: Episode 0232), and a sketch where Grover carries some "HELP" words (First: Episode 0287).
