Rumpel, like all other Grouches, hates rain when others love it, but he loves rain when others hate it. He can be mischievous, but simply can't help but show his good heart from time to time.
Rumpel was added to Sesamstrasse in 1989 alongside Buh & Simson. The German Grouch was to replace deemed negative characters such as Uli von Bödefeld & Oscar the Grouch: quite a few critics weren't fond of the American Sesame Street set. German kids didn't grow up in a suburb full of trash cans. After a few years of absence, the insert scenes of Oscar returned.
- Rumpel started out with a dark green nose, which became a dark, rusty orange in later seasons.
- Rumpel, along with other international Sesame Street characters, appeared on the cover of Sesame Street Magazine in October 2004. Rumpel's uncle Professor Rumprad Guse invented the very 1st ever Grouch computer.
- Rumpel, at 1 point, had a superhero alter-ego, similar to Super Grover. (YouTube)
