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.
Actual bumper sticker series: Jesus is my co-pilot. Satan is my financial advisor. Budha is my therapist. L. Ron Hubbard owes me $50.
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!
