Pancho Contreras is the Grouch on Plaza Sésamo, the Mexican co-production of Sesame Street. He was also the replacement for the original Grouch on the show, Bodoque, who lived in a big pile of crates. He appears in the Street segments of the show, assorted inserts, & also has his own segment, "Pancho Visión". Pancho has a strong obsession with his favorite food, onions (much to the disgust to the other Plaza citizens). & much like Telly Monster, his favorite shape is the triangle. He is also a skilled cello player.
Sesame Workshop description
Pancho Contreras (Pancho) is a furry blue character with yellow eyes & big brown eyebrows who enjoys being different. Pancho likes traveling, playing the cello, & participating in anything extreme: sports, music, games, singing, & eating. He frequently says: "I’m very busy because I’m very busy. I don’t have time." He is fond of his collection of triangles & other unusual objects, but truly adores his pet Elefancio (an elephant’s trunk). Pancho is a little egocentric, & he doesn’t like to lose. Pancho has a strong sense of pride & self-esteem. He knows how to read and write & also knows that Abelardo admires him greatly. He loves the attention because at heart he is insecure & very sensitive. Birthday: June 6
