Zoe is a 3-year-old, yellow-orange female monster on Sesame Street, performed by Fran Brill. She was designed in her color to complement Elmo, who was gaining popularity at her introduction in 1993.

Between 1993 and 2001, Zoe did not wear clothes other than her barrettes, bracelets, and necklace.

She is now permanently dressed in a tutu since 2000, as like many girls of her age, Zoe is obsessed with ballet. Her love of dance in general resulted in the video Zoe's Dance Moves.

She often rides a soapbox-style car around Sesame Street, called the Zoemobile. She has a pet rock, Rocco, much to Elmo's constant dismay.

Though it is likely she has many relatives, only the voice of her Aunt Chloe has been heard on the show. Recently, her aunt Gizelle, who lives in Swan Lake, sent her the tutu she now prominently wears. This is a reference to the character of Giselle in the ballet Giselle.

Her film debut was The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland. Her first video appearance was The Best of Elmo; she then appeared in the videos Do The Alphabet and Big Bird Sings!.

Starting in Season 46, Jennifer Barnhart will take over the role of Zoe, after Fran Brill retired in 2014.
