Elmo | Sesame Street

Elmo is a three and a half year old red, popular Sesame Street muppet. He also appeared in the series with distinctive segments such as Elmo's World, Elmo the Musical, Elmo & Tango's Mysterious Mysteries. He is also the host of "The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo" show, which started in 2020. In this article, we will both introduce Elmo and share Elmo's popular videos on a single web page.

The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland

"Is Elmo a Muppet? : Muppet is a trademark created by Jim Henson. That's why Elmo is a muppet. But every muppet is also a puppet. Although the word muppet is usually used for Elmo, it would not be wrong to use the word puppet."

Elmo's Physical Characteristics

Elmo is a furry red muppet. He has two large eyes and unlike most muppets, his eyes are located on the top of his head. Cookie Monster also has this feature. Maybe this is a physical feature that adds to Elmo and Cookie Monster's appeal without us knowing it. His nose resembles an orange egg.

It has an extremely high-pitched sound, called the Falsetto sound in music. Here the puppeteer changes his voice and puts it into a high-pitched form. So Elmo's voice is not made with a computer effect.

Elmo was measured by Drew Brees in episode 4274 and is 24 inches, or 61 centimeters, tall.

Elmo's Potty Time

"Does Elmo have ear? : Of course he has ears. However, muppets are not designed to accurately reflect the real world. For Elmo's big ears, you can watch Elmo's World Ears segment."

"Is Elmo a Boy or Girl?Elmo is a boy. But on Sesamstrasse, the German version of Sesame Street, for a while her name was Elma and she was a girl."

A Brief History of the Elmo Character and Casting

The character Elmo was designed by puppeteer and muppet designer Carol Wilcox in the late 1970s. This initial design had a wider head.

Elmo first appeared on Sesame Street in episode 1405 in the song We Are All Monsters. Elmo was first voiced by Brian Muehl. (1980–1984) In episode 1439, Elmo was polishing an H with a rag in his hand. Maria approaches him, but Elmo just mutters. Early in his career, Elmo was an unpopular character who couldn't speak but tried to communicate by muttering.

After Brian Muehl, Elmo was performed by Richard Hunt (1984–1985). But Richard Hunt was not good at performing Elmo. After Hunt, Kevin Clash played Elmo. Kevin Clash first voiced Elmo in 1985 in episode 2026. Kevin Clash made Elmo a popular character with his unique performance. (1985–2012)

Ryan Dillon voiced Elmo after Kevin Clash left the show in 2013. (2013 – present)

Elmo Saves Christmas

"Did Elmo go to jail? What Happened to the Guy Who Plays Elmo? : Several lawsuits have been filed against Kevin Clash, the previous puppeteer who voiced Elmo. Although the lawsuits were dismissed, Kevin Clash had to end his career on Sesame Street by resigning."

"What does Elmo Mean?Elmo has no meaning in English. The word Elmo means helmet, protection in Italian."

Elmo's Family

Elmo has a large family due to his popularity. Elmo has a mother named Mae, a father named Louie, and a sister named Daisy. Elmo's cousins are Jesse, Pepe, Elmonosuke, Mimsy, Elmer, Chester and Phoebe Furchester-Fuzz. Elmo's uncles are Furgus Fuzz, Uncle Jack and aunts are Funella Furchester, Aunt Jill.

Elmo The Musical

"Does Elmo have brothers? : Elmo does not currently have a brother. He has a sister named Daisy. But Daisy did not appear in episodic appearances. At least until now. (2022)"

"Where does Elmo Live? : Elmo lives with his family on the 1st floor of a Sesame Street building. Ernie and Bert, who live in the basement of the building, are Elmo's neighbors."

"Where is Elmo's Mom?Elmo's mother Mae is still on Sesame Street. But she doesn't appear much in the videos. Her most important role so far has been to provide informations about Covid 19 in Mae's Minute videos."

Elmo's World

Elmo's World is a segment that aired on Sesame Street between 1998 and 2012. The first episode of Elmo's World to air is Elmo's World Balls in episode 3786. Each episode has a different theme: shoes, dancing, friends, mouths, food, music... etc. 

There are other characters besides Elmo in the episodes that last 15-20 minutes on average. Dorothy, Elmo's pet goldfish, has a question in every episode. Mr Noodle (Bill Irwin) tries to answer these questions and usually succeeds after many failed attempts. In Mr Noodle's absence, Mr. Noodle's brother (Michael Jeter) and Mr. Noodle's sister (Kristin Chenoweth) fulfills this task.

A new five-minute version of Elmo's World aired between seasons 47 and 52. In this new version, the animated smartphone Smartie was also one of the characters.

However, although not officially confirmed, Abby Cadabby is Elmo's childhood sweetheart. It is possible to see the harmony between these two in the video Elmo's Travel Songs and Games."

Illeism - Third Person Speech

Elmo usually speaks in the third person. This is also called illeism. Elmo doesn't say "I've come", he says "Elmo has come".

"Why does Elmo talk in third person? : It's about character creation. Each character in Sesame Street has their own unique characteristics. This makes one muppet different from the others."

Elmo's Pets and Toys

Elmo had goldfishes called Barkley in the late 1980s and Bubbles in the 1990s. Bubbles' death made Elmo very sad. So Miles and Telly gifted him a goldfish called Miles-Telly. In 1998, Elmo got the goldfish Dorothy. He also has a puppy named Tango since 2021. Since 1986, Elmo's favorite toy has been Baby David.

"Who is Elmo's Best Friend? : Sesame Workshop answered this question: Elmo's best friends are Zoe and Abby, and also his pet goldfish Dorothy."
