Stinky as a real boy (episode 4049)

Stinky the Stinkweed is a living stinkweed from Sesame Street. At times he's a bit self-conscious about his smelly lot in life, but he's generally a very friendly plant. He doesn't hesitate to ask for a favor, "If it's not too much of a bother."

At times, Stinky has bloomed single flowers, sprouting right out of his head. Surprisingly, these flowers varied in color: he has been spotted with a pink, blue, yellow and a plain green flower.

When Joey Mazzarino won the Daytime Emmy in 2010 for his performances on Sesame Street, Stinky was one of the official credits listed. A large version of Stinky was incorporated into the Vegetable Garden float in the Sesame Place Neighborhood Street Party parade.
