Ernie finds a ball and discusses it with Herry.
This is early on in Herry's evolution, which is why his nose is blue instead of purple. In the early days, they often used Herry this way; his gruff demeanor and fierce-looking appearance caused others to be afraid of him and resulted in comical misunderstandings. As his character continued to develop, the other characters got to know him and came to understand that he was really very gentle and caring. Which, now that I think about it, is a scenario that could very well happen in real life, among human beings.
Gosh, I miss Herry. I'm so glad they've preserved all these wonderful Herry sketches and made them available online. I don't remember this one from when I was a kid, so it's a treat to get to discover "new" Herry sketches as well.
