Prairie Dawn is a fictional character, a rather mature seven-year-old Muppet girl on the children's television program Sesame Street. She is similar in appearance to a character from the Anything Muppets. She is famous for writing school pageants (e.g., Sesame Street Little Theater) for her friends, mostly Bert and Ernie, Herry, Grover, and Cookie Monster. She also plays the piano during these pageants. She has appeared on Sesame Street since early in the show's history. Prairie was originally puppeteered and voiced by Fran Brill who also performed the more recently introduced character Zoe.
On seasons 35 through 38 of Sesame Street, she helps Cookie Monster during his Letter of the Day segments, describing the letter of the day and trying to prevent Cookie Monster from eating it, but Cookie Monster finds a way to eat it anyway.
Starting in Season 46, Stephanie D'Abruzzo will take over the role of Prairie Dawn, after Fran Brill retired in 2014.
