PATTERN Fat Blue Live Hands

Richard is an enthusiastic, young Anything Muppet boy who appears in some season 13 episodes of Sesame Street.

He first appears in Episode 1606, where he uses a hand-made letter L for a special guessing game with Maria and the kids.

Later in Episode 1612, he happens upon Harriet's vegetable stand by Oscar's trash can and points out the letter V in her "Vegetables" sign, but is unable to read the rest. Oscar gets very annoyed when Richard asks about it, having been disturbed all day regarding the stand.

Richard later sits in with the kids as Harriet talks about different vegetables. Richard is surprised to learn that eggs come from chickens, as he made an earlier attempt to grow his own by planting them in the ground.
