Sesame Place Philadelphia Welcomes its Newest Furry Friend, Elmo’s Adopted Puppy Tango, to the Neighborhood

Sesame Place® Philadelphia, the first theme park in the U.S. based entirely on the award-winning show Sesame Street® and the first theme park in the world to be recognized as a Certified Autism Center, is about to get even furrier—Elmo’s adopted puppy, Tango, will find her fur-ever home at Sesame Place Philadelphia on Tuesday, July 12. After two weeks of teasers on social media, Sesame Place announced that the music-loving, curious puppy will debut at the park as an all-new walkaround character.

A sweet and spirited puppy named after her love of music and dancing, Tango debuted in the 2021 animated special Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy, in which Elmo finds a stray Tango and adopts her. Tango then joined Sesame Street’s 52nd season as both an animated and a live-action character on Sesame Street. Tango’s arrival at Sesame Place will be celebrated at Tango’s Welcome Week, a six-day event running from Tuesday, July 12 through Sunday, July 17.

Tango’s Welcome Week activities include:

  • Tango’s Gotcha Day Ceremony – The park will officially welcome Tango on July 12 at 11:30 am at Oscar’s Wacky Taxi Stage.
  • Elmo & Tango’s Gotcha Day Scavenger Hunt – Guests can search throughout the park for all the items that Elmo needs to take care of Tango. Guests can turn in completed activity sheets at Mr. Hooper’s Gift Shop for their choice of pet-themed prizes: Sesame Place bandanas or tennis balls. Self-guided scavenger hunts run throughout the day, while supplies last.
  • Tango’s Treat Seek – Tango’s golden treat will be secretly hidden in the park every morning during Tango’s Welcome Week. The first person to find Tango’s treat will receive Sesame Street-themed pet prizes from BarkBox and Pet Krewe at the Welcome Center.
  • In-Park Screenings of Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy TV Special – Guests will have the opportunity to see how Elmo and Tango first met in screenings of their original TV special at Sesame Studio Theater throughout the day.
  • Season Pass Members will have the first chance to meet Tango close-up and take photos with her in exclusive Meet & Greets at Abby’s Paradise Theater on Tuesday, July 12, and Wednesday, July 13. Reservations are required and can be made within Season Pass Members’ online portals.

All guests will be able to see Tango in the Sesame Street Party Parade starting July 12 and can meet Tango starting July 14.

Following Tango’s Welcome Week, guests will be able to spot Sesame Place’s newest resident in the daily Sesame Street Party Parade and interact with her in Meet & Greets at Abby’s Paradise Theater.
