Samuel Snively is a super shapes salesman for the Snidley Super Shapes Company of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The salesman solicits the sale of specialized shapes to citizens of Sesame Street, namely Bob, in a Sesame Street one-shot sketch. (First: Episode 0166)

Mr. Snively specializes in selling circles from his suitcase, stopping to show samples of his circle, including striped circles, sequined circles, and small circles. He tries, without success, to sell Bob a three-sided circle (triangle) and a four-cornered circle (square).

Bob encounters Samuel again in Episode 0460.
