Do you think Rudy could become the new Elmo?

    I am surprised Rosita has stood the test the time.

    She's a great character. One of my favs since day one.

    She's a bit like Elmo, in the sense that she gradually gained more prominence and popularity over the course of more than a decade. She's developed a lot over the years too, and I think she's one of the more well rounded of the show's main characters.
    Carmen Osbahr doesn't get enough credit for how charming she makes Rosita. You can tell from her earliest appearances, she really stood out from the many short lived characters of the 90s.

    Yeah Rosita is a great character. I think Sesame definitely tried to make Murray Monster a bigger character before the HBO deal. He was always very prominent with Elmo and Abby.

    As far as Murray goes, a lot of people foresaw him as becoming the new Elmo, so-to-speak, what with him becoming the sort of unofficial host of the show, getting his own segment, getting wrap-arounds and framing devices. Heh, I still remember when my friend Kevin Magpoc did this strip in his webcomic years ago:

    Character prominence, I feel, also depends on performer availabilities. You'd see a lot of Murray alongside Elmo and Abby because Joey was free do to do things vs, say, Ernie.
