6) When he first appeared on Sesame Street, Snuffy was a little .... weird. During the first few seasons, Snuffleupagus had an Eeyore like pessimistic outlook and often answered questions nonsensically. Example conversation with pal Bird,

Big Bird "Where did you go?"

Snuffy "I Suppose so"

....ok

5) He also was originally terrifying.

3) His shoe size is 65 triple G

2) Snuffy is also a great tap dancer who once danced with pros Maurice and Gregory Hines.

1) The adults of Sesame Street didn't believe in Snuffleupagus!  At first they thought he was just an imaginary friend of Big Bird's. Finally in 1985, Elmo caught Snuffy in Big Bird's nest and Gordon and the gang had to apologize and say that from then on they would alway believe what Big Bird said.
