Benny, hopping mad as a bellhop at The Furry Arms.

Benny Rabbit is a cranky rabbit who serves as a bellhop for the Furry Arms hotel on Sesame Street. In one skit, Benny had a job working in a car rental place.

Benny is easily irritated and frequently yells at others. His outbursts are preceded by a variation of the comedic "slow-burn," as he grits his two front teeth until a small squeak is emitted. His personality is very similar to Oscar the Grouch, who has very similar character traits.

Benny seldom does anything nice for another person and whenever someone asks him for a favor, he says he has to go downtown. He hates being touched and hugged, but his biggest pet peeve is when people address him as "Bunny" rather than Benny.

Benny first appeared in Sesame Street Season 23 (1991) as a generic rabbit character, and was then hired to work for the Furry Arms in 1993. Although briefly retired in 1998, he resurfaced in Season 32. He occasionally performed such songs as "Do the Benny Hop," "14 Carrot Love," and "Don't Touch Me!" He also made a brief cameos in Elmo's World: Hats, a Global Grover segment about Australia, and a Trash Gordon skit where Space Bunnies attack the valiant hero.
