Zoe is a 3-year-old orange female monster on Sesame Street, originally performed by Fran Brill. She was designed in her color to complement Elmo, who was gaining popularity at her introduction in 1993. Before Season 33, Zoe wore only her barrettes, bracelets, and necklace.
She has regularly been dressed in a tutu since season 33, 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. In Season 49, she returns to her sans-tutu wardrobe.
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 wears. This is a reference to the character of Giselle in the ballet Giselle.
Starting with Season 46, Jennifer Barnhart took over the role of Zoe, following Fran Brill's retirement in 2014.
