"I was watching Get Smart and there was a scene with a control agent hiding in a garbage can & he referred to himself as a "grouch " I wonder which came first this scene or the Sesame Street character. It's not that unusual for artists to derive stuff from other sources, completely unconsciously. Get Smart ran from 1965-70, Sesame Street started in 1969, It may have been a reference to Sesame Street but seems unlikely since Sesame St was just getting started, probably wasn't that big, it's statistically more likely the Get Smart episode came first. (Other possibly helpful distinguishing features of the episode: Max giving a cardigan to a news agent who turned out to be a chaos agent who abducted him, he was then drugged and made to do arithmetic, at the end the chaos agent was shot wearing the cardigan, Max was annoyed about it being damaged)."
