Crustworthy2

Live-hand variant from Episode 4141.

Mrs. Crustworthy is an elderly woman who has made recurring appearances on Sesame Street since season 37.

She made her debut in Episode 4116 as a Hooper's Store customer. She has recurred semi-frequently since, earning the name Mrs. Crustworthy in Episode 4141 and being referred to as Maybelle in Episode 4403.

In Episode 4141, she takes her toaster to the Fix-It Shop for repair, for the Toast Lovers' Society's luncheon. She desperately needs it fixed, "or I'm toast!" When it takes a while to be repaired, she partakes in "The Toast Lovers' Participatory Popping Game," which involves pretending to be a piece of toast in a toaster. The waiting pays off, and the toaster is ready.

The character is mentioned on Fran Brill's Puppeteering Resume.[1] In fact, the character is based on an old woman Brill knew as a child.[2]

Appearances[]

She was also referenced in Episode 5203 (Season 52).
