In contrast to all those other cute and friendly Muppet rabbits, Benny from Sesame Street is irritable, lazy, and a tad selfish and tries to avoid doing work or something nice for someone else whenever he can. He prefers being left alone and for all those people with the obnoxious habit of petting rabbits to keep their hands to themselves, and Benny ESPECIALLY HATES being called "Bunny", snapping "the name's BENNY!" each time. Like Oscar, Benny adds a lot of cynical humor to the otherwise friendly main characters of Sesame Street.
