Who is this muppet? This is from a set of Sesame Street flash cards. Google has failed me.

An attempt to show what Oscar the Grouch looks like outside his trashcan?

I was going to say Telly, but it looks like your muppet is the wrong color.

Herry Monster.

Here's Herry, who I'd forgotten all about until peacrow wrote that. Pretty sure your muppet is Herry.

bq has it, it's Herry Monster, probably an earlier incarnation than his present look.

And by bq I meant peacrow and still I got beaten to the punch.

Definitely Herry. In two of the pictures on scody's link he's wearing the same stripey pants.

Definitely Herry; a lot of pictures books have drawings that are slightly different than what the puppet actually looks like for some reason (copyright issues, perhaps?).

I will not be stopped from saying that it is Herry.

I really liked Herry Monster as a kid, because he reminded me of my Uncle, who was a shipyard welder.

On the other hand, there was a muppet who looked very similar, but had a beetling unibrow, and there was one skit where he dissolved out of existence while glowing brightly a cyan-yellow while roaring, and that completely messed my 3 y.o. shit up... so I was all anxious when seeing the blue fur, awesome Uncle Herry or Scary Roaring Demon?

I decided to love Grover best, just to be safe.

Slap*Happy: Sweetums?

No, Sweetums and I are pals. He had a thick, blue, furry body like Herry, only with fangs and angry eyes. Let me look it up on google...

Harold. Harold monster. Now I will never sleep.

Herry and company are fuzzy and blue.

And to add to this, I think that's one of the versions of that character as a kid. When they did that series of cartoons with the Muppets as children...I think he's from that.

I know the guy who was Junior Gorg On Fraggle Rock well enough to get pretty much any Muppet question answered, but I think you can put an "resolved" tag to this one.

You, my good sir, are thinking of Muppet Babies, with which any self-respecting latchkey kid from the '80s knows very well (It was a spin-off from "The Muppets Take Manhattan"). Unfortunately for your hypothesis, it only featured muppets starring on "The Muppet Show"... it was a little too crass and commercial for CTW. (Unlike, say, animatronic "Chicken Dance Elmo" dolls. Cough.)

It's just Herry, dressed for the beach.

Obviously this question has been long answered, but I clicked the initial link and happily exclaimed "Herry!"

>it only featured muppets starring on "The Muppet Show"...

apart from a made up Muppet called Skeeter. I never got where he came from.

I never got where he came from.

Skeeter's a She! She was Scooter's twin sister, added presumably to keep Piggy from being the only girl in the show. She was in a Muppets comicbook a few years back.

Also, on topic, I don't know if anyone said that was Herry Monster, but that is Herry Monster.

Skeeter was Scooter's sister, and yes, made up for the Muppet Babies as a second strong female character (which the Muppet Show never really had, though it made good use of strong women guests as foils/complements to Piggy), and a different take on being a girl.

Which leads me to one of my favorite robot chicken sketches.
