I love writing for Big Bird, Oscar, Cookie Monster, Grover, the Count, and the Amazing Mumford. They're such distinctive personalities that always beef up each of my outlines, just like they did in the actual episodes. For human characters, I'd have to say that I often use Maria, David, Olivia, and Bob.

Herry Monster passes by on his morning jog and Luis asks for help. Herry says that Luis needs more light and begins yelling at the sun to rise. Luis shushes him so that the neighbors won’t wake up. Then Luis realizes that the lamppost has a light on top, so Herry goes over to the lamppost and starts yanking it out of the ground! Luis quickly stops him and says that he’ll stand by the lamppost and find the right key to unlock the shop. Then Herry sees Mr. Hooper trying to unlock his store. Herry helps by yanking the lamppost out of the ground and bringing it to an astonished Mr. Hooper.
