Tony's illustrated appearance in The Sesame Street 1, 2, 3 Storybook.

Tony is a green Anything Muppet who often appears in the company of large, furry monsters (whether he wants to be or not). He participated in several Sesame Street sketches, and featured by name in the 1973 character style guide.

He debuted in "Lulu's Back in Town" (first seen in Episode 0030; Gordon refers to him by name in his introduction in Episode 0080) with Lulu (played by Beautiful Day Monster). A slightly modified version of the puppet appeared to sing "Windy", also with Beautiful Day Monster.

Another sketch opens with him talking on the telephone to Lulu, asking her to a dance. When she can't make it, he goes on to sing the Beatles' song "Help!", and Herry shows up in a wig to be his date. He was also seen in a sketch as the clerk in a clothing store assisting a woman looking for a blue, furry coat (who ends up buying Cookie Monster when Tony doesn't have anything in stock to match her tastes).
