In the "Letter of the Day" episodes in seasons 33 and 35, she tries to stop Cookie Monster from eating the letter of the day, but of course, she never succeeds.

Rocco is a rock, but not just any rock - he's Zoe's beloved pet rock. Zoe is convinced that Rocco can talk and even has a life of his own.

"What would it be like to have two heads? One head saying 'We have to go right,' while the other argues, 'No, you idiot, we're going left!' The Two-Headed Monster often appears behind a wall, as the puppeteers performing it are in a tricky situation. This character frequently demonstrates the meaning of words on Sesame Street."

18. Julia:

Sesame Street Characters Julia

Julia is undoubtedly one of Sesame Street's most meaningful characters. She is a close friend of Elmo and Abby and is a girl with autism. She shows us that autism isn't a disease, it's just a little bit different. Julia is seen for the first time in episode 4715, "Meet Julia", and she has a toy bunny that she loves very much. You are amazing Julia and we are always with you!

It wasn't until season 17 that Snuffy met adults for the first time, proving that he wasn't just a figment of Big Bird's imagination. Snuffy's giant body requires two puppeteers to operate. We're glad to have you with us, big friend!

14. Telly Monster:

Sesame Street Characters Telly Monster

Telly takes his name from the word 'television.' He was originally conceived as a monster addicted to TV. However, this was deemed pedagogically wrong and the character was changed. Telly gained popularity when Caroll Spinney, the performer for Big Bird, injured his foot and was unable to appear in the series. Telly is a Muppet who loves triangles and is often portrayed as insecure and anxious. He owns a hamster named Chuckie Sue. Telly's enthusiastic demeanor is really endearing!

Murray was initially referred to as the 'Orange Monster' on the show. He hosted the 'What's the Word on the Street' segment and also appeared in the segment 'Murray Has a Little Lamb' with his lamb named Ovejita.

10. Count von Count:

Sesame Street Characters Count von Count

Normally, we're all afraid of vampires, but this vampire is so cute that he's changed the way we look at them. Count von Count, also known as The Count, was introduced to the series in season 4. Unlike other vampires, he doesn't want blood; he just wants to count things constantly. Counting has become an obsession for him. While Sesame Street never officially confirms that he's a vampire, it's clear that he has some vampiric traits. One key difference is that he loves sunlight - after all, no one would want The Count to evaporate!

9. Abby Cadabby:

Sesame Street Characters Abby Cadabby

Abby Cadabby was added to the series in the 37th season. Her name comes from the word "abracadabra" used to perform magic. She gained popularity with the shows "Abby's Flying Fairy School" and "Abby's Amazing Adventures". Sometimes his spells caused problems and he struggled to restore everything.

Another classic character of the street and has been on the scene since 1970. Grover has a versatile personality: Waiter Grover, Super Grover, Global Grover, Marshal Grover... Grover was very close friends with Kermit when he was cast. The main reasons kids love him are because of his amazing imagination and always helping someone.

7. Bert:

Sesame Street Characters Bert

One of the most serious characters in the series. Ernie is his best friend. Bert has a very serious personality. Ernie, on the other hand, is the opposite of him, he is playful and always wants to have fun. The character clash between these two characters enables the development of funny events. His favorite motto is: Life is hard with Ernie, but life is harder without him.

6. Ernie:

Sesame Street Characters Ernie

One of the most entertaining and humorous characters of the series. Ernie is Bert's best friend and also his roommate. When Bert is busy with something, Ernie always tries to seduce him. When Bert wants to sleep, he doesn't let him sleep, but then Ernie sleeps. You know, sometimes we like to gently tease a dear friend. That's the instinct in Ernie's behavior. Ernie also likes Rubber Duckie and sings songs for him.

5. Oscar the Grouch:

Sesame Street Characters Oscar the Grouch

The right word to describe him would be extraordinary. Oscar the Grouch lives in a trash can and never complains about it: because he loves trash. As you can see from his name, he has a grumpy personality. He and the grouch named Grundgetta became engaged but stopped planning to get married because they were afraid of being happy. Oscar also states that he doesn't like Telly and Elmo. He's like a grumpy old man and it's impossible to please him!

4. Big Bird:

Sesame Street Characters Big Bird

Big Bird is a big yellow bird. He has been in the series since the first episode. He is usually a muppet prone to misunderstandings. However, he does not complain about this situation. Because he accepts himself as he is and is at peace with himself. Definitely a good role model for kids! Its creator, Jim Henson, died in 1990.

3. Cookie Monster:

Sesame Street Characters Cookie Monster

Cookie Monster is the always-hungry character of the street. He loves cookies, but not just any cookies. He has been known to eat letters, numbers, and even once tried to eat a rock.

However, it would be better if he had a slightly healthier diet.

2. Kermit the Frog:

Sesame Street Characters Kermit the Frog

Kermit the Frog is one of the old muppet characters of the series. He was the host of Sesame Street News Flash. And he sang the classic song "Being Green". Sesame Street didn't own all the rights to it. Therefore, he did not become a permanent muppet on the street. Still, it was necessary to add the old friend to this list.

1. elmo:

Sesame Street Characters elmo

He is number one on the list. Speaking in third person, Elmo is the most popular muppet character in the series. Kevin Clash contributed a lot in making him loved so much. After Clash, Ryan Dillon picked up where he left off. Elmo even has a show called "The Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo" that he currently hosts himself. "Elmo's World" series is still an important segment for children with its old and new versions. He also starred in "Elmo the Musical". It's hard to fit its popularity into the list here. After all, you all know him well.

Autistic Sesame Street Character Julia. 1

Here, Julia is a character created on Sesame Street to raise awareness of this problem. The character is performed by Stacey Gordon, whose son has autism.

Autistic Sesame Street Character Julia. 2

Sesame Street has always given importance to community education. In the past, the deaf human character Linda was created with a similar purpose to Julia. Another purpose of the character's creators is that she is not called "autistic Julia" but just Julia. Thus, it is intended to convey the message that an autistic person is not much different from others.

Autistic Sesame Street Character Julia. 3

Julia was first introduced in 2015 but made her first appearance in Sesame Street season 47, episode 4715. This episode was called Meet Julia.

Buddy and Jim appeared together in their segment. They only appeared in the show's cast in the first season. Buddy and Jim were a comedy duo using simple elements. For example, when trying to nail a wall to hang a picture, after unsuccessful attempts, they did not like the picture they wanted to hang on the wall. Or they worked to get an ironing board through the door to move it to the other room. Buddy and Jim are therefore similar to Mr. Noodle in the Elmo's World segment. Buddy was played by Brandon Maggart and Jim by James Catusi.

1. Zoe:

Orange Sesame Street Characters Zoe

The last character in orange color that I will present to you is Zoe. It is said that Zoe was designed in orange to complement Elmo. This is partially true, but not entirely true. In fact, the color orange was chosen because it reflects the movement-loving and dynamic features of the character. We see the dynamism-enhancing effects of the orange color in Zoe. Zoe loves to dance and act. That's why she appeared in the "dancing" and "jumping" episodes of the "Elmo's World" series.

Blue Sesame Street Characters

The Sesame Street blue characters are actually outnumbered. Here we will only consider popular blue characters. By the way, it is necessary to mention the psychological effects of the color blue. Blue is a color that reduces stress and gives confidence and peace. But the blue characters in Sesame Street are often marginal. Many muppets of varying colors have appeared and disappeared from the show over time. Blue muppets, on the other hand, continued their popularity with their unusual features and some obsessions. Then now is the time to get to know them.

4. Herry Monster

Blue Sesame Street Characters Herry Monster

4th on the list is Herry Monster, who has been in the series since 1970. Even Herry Monster's nose was blue before. He later got a purple nose resembling an eggplant. The Big Bad Wolf muppet was also made using Herry's template. Although Herry Monster always looks sullen, he is actually a very sweet muppet.

3. Mr. Johnson

Blue Sesame Street Characters Mr. Johnson

Next on the blue muppets list is Mr. Johnson. Although Mr. Johnson is not a very popular muppet, he has appeared in the series periodically since 1971. He was most loved for his role in sketches with Garson Grover. Mr. Johnson was also a glutton like the Cookie Monster, which is why he was sometimes called the fat blue. Mr. Johnson is actually a quiet guy, but Grover always manages to piss him off with his clumsiness.

2. Grover 

Grover is a popular blue character appearing in the series since 1970. The original Grover wasn't blue unfortunately, it had a terrible color as if it had come out of the garbage. Grover is one of the most active characters in the show in my opinion. Because we see that it does not always come to the forefront in a single aspect.

Blue Sesame Street Characters Grover

During the years that Kermit the Frog appeared on Sesame Street, his best friend was Grover. In skits with Mr. Johnson, Grover is seen as a waiter. His name was "Global Grover" when he introduced us to different countries and cultures in the world in the early 2000s. He also took on the Superman-like "Super Grover" character (with the natural advantage of being blue in colour). It should be added that he played the role of Marshal Grover and is an active character in the Monsterpiece Theater segment. 

Blue Sesame Street Characters Grover. 1

Here are the reasons why he is, in my opinion, Sesame Street's most active muppet. However, we can also state that he ruined every job he handled with his clumsiness. Maybe that's why he's such a popular muppet?

1. Cookie Monster

The #1 most popular blue Sesame Street character is definitely Cookie Monster. Cookie Monster is known for eating cookies with a loud noise and splashing pieces of it. He presented the "Letter of the Day" segment with Prairie Dawn. Prairie wanted to keep him from eating the letter of the day. Prairie wasn't very successful, however, because Cookie Monster had a strong urge when it came to cookies.
