Telly Monster is an intense and earnest monster who worries over everything. He often needs help from his friends to cope with strong emotions like anxiety and frustration.
When he practices strategies to calm down, he can focus, show greater self-confidence, and persist at any task. Telly’s favorite shape is the triangle. He loves to play with his best friend, Baby Bear; through this relationship, young viewers see that friendships have ups and downs and can sometimes require work.
