Sesame Street

I love to watch "Sesame Street" and want to know about my favorite character.

The Jim Henson Company created the original characters from "Sesame Street," including Big Bird, Elmo, Ernie & Bert, Oscar the Grouch, Grover, Cookie Monster, Harry Monster, the Yip Yips, the Count, Rosita, Zoe, Snuffulupagus, Barkley and many more. In 2001, the rights to these characters were sold to Sesame Workshop.

Today, The Jim Henson Company provides the characters used on "Sesame Street," but those characters and the show itself are actually owned and run by Sesame Workshop. To contact them, please see the Sesame Workshop website or write to:
