Herbert Birdsfoot

Herbert Birdsfoot was introduced on Sesame Street in Season 2 as a lecturer, usually with Grover as his assistant. He was the brief replacement for Kermit the Frog in his lecturing job on the street. With Kermit's return later that season, the character was quietly phased out by 1974. He then made one of his last appearences in "The Muppet Movie" during the finale.

His name is a play on the pasture crop "bird's-foot trefoil," which was familiar to Jim Henson because of his father's work for the U.S. Department of Agriculture.[1]
