"Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away, on my way to where the air is sweet..."
- Sesame Street theme song

Sesame Street is an educational American children's television show that debuted in 1969. One of its most beloved characters is Elmo, a furry red Muppet monster.

Elmo is said to be three and a half years old, and he always refers to himself in the third person. Although Elmo appears in early episodes, his character first took on his adorable personality in 1984.

Elmo soon became a pop culture phenomenon. He has appeared in real-world talk shows, including The Rosie O'Donnell Show, Martha Stewart Living, the Tony Danza Show, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, Oprah, and others.

Elmo even testified before a United States Senate subcommittee in 2002 to support increased funding for music education. He has also been parodied in several episodes of The Simpsons.

In 1996, interest in the character reached a fever pitch. The "Tickle Me Elmo" toy flew from store shelves, and injuries were reported among raucous customers. Different versions of the toy, including other Sesame Street characters, have been released in the years since.

1. Begin by drawing a circle. This will form Elmo's nose. Then, draw two additional circles above the first, overlapping each other and partially hidden by the nose. These will form Elmo's eyes. Then, draw a smaller circle within each eye to indicate the pupil.
