Telly is one of Elmo’s best friends on Sesame Street. Other than being with friends, Telly loves triangles. Telly’s love of triangles is almost equivalent to Cookie Monster’s obsession with cookies. Bert’s infatuation with pigeons may more comparable to Telly’s love of triangles. The point is that Telly is crazy about triangles and enjoys counting the corners and faces of triangles-even though he knows that there are three of each.
