Prairie Dawn, Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?

The Sesame Street Little Theater takes pride in presenting . . .
–Pageant director, Prairie Dawn

Prairie Dawn loves to write, direct and accompany pageants for her friends to act in. She wants to work in broadcasting or journalism. In addition to her pageants, she has hosted several segments, worked as a correspondent for the Monster News Network, participated in a number of Guy Smiley's game shows and tried her hand at directing. Unfortunately she had a bumpy start when, while directing Elmopalooza, she and the rest of the crew were trapped in a dressing room for most of the show.

Prairie Dawn has been a member of the Sesame Street cast since 1971. She is based on the Hot Pink Little Anything Muppet, which is collective term for an “empty” Muppet head, to which facial features and costumes may be added. The Little Anything Muppets {which are smaller than the green or purple Anything Muppets} are used for small animals and children. Like most of the other Sesame Street characters, she has gone through several changes through the years. She is voiced by Fran Brill, who says she enjoys playing a character that is a little bit older than the typical Sesame Street resident.

Gah, 143 pieces!?! Wow. These blocks are an exercise in patience and precision and persistence, aren't they? You do such wonderful work on each one, and though they may seem like simple characters, they are anything but. Amazing job.

I always liked Prairie Dawn. Her best friends are Grover and Herry Monster, huh? I didn't know that, but Grover is another favorite. And who is that little blue guy with the curvy nose? It's been a while since I've gone down Sesame Street, as you can tell. When the Muppet Show was big (and I was young), Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker and the Swedish Chef always cracked me up. Okay, I'll stop now.
