Harold Hooper was the elderly storekeeper on Sesame Street from 1969 until his death in 1982. One of the original human cast members, he ran Hooper's Store, the corner candy store on Sesame Street. Originally described by CTW advisor Gerald S. Lesser as "slightly mean and abrasive but with a poorly hidden nice streak," he mellowed over the years. He developed a particularly close relationship with Big Bird, who bought his birdseed milkshakes from him. Big Bird had a tendency to mispronounce his name, to his unending chagrin and correction.
