On Sesame Street, Mr. Handford bought Hoopers Store from David (Northern Calloway) and ran it from 1990 to 1998 when he sold it to Alan. There was a running joke where Snuffy and Alice often got his name wrong and called him Mr. Handfoot, shades of Bid Bird and "Mr. Looper".

Mr. Handford is a retired firefighter, first played by some actor whose name I don't know for one season and then by David Langston Smyrl until leaving in 1998. The second one was by far the better.
