Señor Esnofelopago is Snuffy's Puerto Rican cousin who visited in Sesame Street Episode 1934. For his appearance, a fifty-pound sombrero was built and placed on the head of the regular Snuffy puppet. However, the weight of the sombrero caused the frame of the puppet to collapse, pinning down Martin P. Robinson and Bryant Young under a wall of fur. The incident was mentioned in the 2009 book Sesame Street: A Celebration - 40 Years of Life on the Street.
Marty Robinson shed some more light on the incident in a post on Sesame Family Robinson:
