HR Puff and Stuff? Grover?
Definitely not a CTW product, ESPECIALLY not from the '70s (they were if anything a LOT nastier about controlling what was produced at the time as they were a lot more dependent on getting government funding--now, "Congress wants to kill Big Bird!" is a completely empty threat as their merchandising is worth millions.) Knockoff? Most probably.
I don't think it's Grover or Cookie Monster - scroll down on this page for more angles:
And here's someone else selling one:
Couldn't find any other Sesame Street characters by this company, so my guess is it's just a random monster. I vaguely recall that monsters were "in" back then thanks to Sesame Street and some other kids shows - I remember my mom actually sewed little fuzzy monsters for me and my sister. Would make sense that toy manufacturers would get on the trend and do their own version.
I vaguely remember that character from some Sat. morning kids show that wasn't very good. No way I can name him though.
Delete. Wrong Thread.
It doesn't look like anything from Sesame Street. It's eyes look like two sliced boiled eggs...

Once again, you all have proven to my husband that FSU is a font of knowledge. I think I'll just list it as a "monster" vintage piggy bank. It always amazes me what people will buy!
