Sour Bird

DEBUT 1966

Sour Bird appeared in ads for Royal Crown Cola with Nutty Bird in 1966. As his name would indicate, he does not share Nutty Bird's enthusiasm toward the beverage, and he hates folk singers with a message.

He soon after appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in the Muppets' first visit to the show on September 18, 1966. He appears at the end of the "Rock and Roll Monster" sketch, snapping up the instant rock and roll group as it shrinks back to its original size.

A few years later, Sour Bird turned up on Sesame Street in a sketch first shown in Episode 0075. He appears among a group of other Muppets reacting to a letter O, performed here by Frank Oz.
