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:
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.
