That's before my time too, he must not have lasted long as I'd have remembered seeing something like that in the 80s.

Gone but not forgotten.
He looks like one of two things - a Doctor Who villain or that Mars probe the 6 Million Dollar Man fought.

I don't remember SAM at all but after watching that I DO remember seeing SAM's body in something else, though I can't recall what. I'm sure they removed his eyes and mouth and recycled him at some point.

I'm starting to recall that SAM's body may have been used in The Muppet Show at some point, where they put things into that round portal under that front hatch, he makes some noise, then the hatch swings down again and the thing they wanted made comes out. I'm not entirely sure about this but that's what I'm remembering.

One of those things I had completely forgotten about until this jogged my memory. I now remember SAM quite well.

I remember this; never cared for the character. Not only wasn't he funny, but I couldn't get over that he has big Muppet googly eyes. Is he a robot or a living Muppet creature? Too goofy (even for wee little Treadwell).

Into a TARDIS console perhaps? :love

I was also going to guess the resemblence to the Venus Space Probe from Six Million Dollar Man as well (that thing IS burned in my brain). As much as I watched Sesame Street when I was a kid, I still can't quite remember SAM in the same vein as the other characters. But maybe I didn't really watch it that much until about 1975-76, which would have been the tail end of SAM's appearances.
