In illustrations, Dorothy often has feminine-looking eyelashes.

Dorothy is Elmo's pet goldfish who first appeared on the "Elmo's World" segment of Sesame Street. At six years old (in goldfish years)[1], she is a good friend to Elmo, who can understand what she's saying through her goldfish bowl. Dorothy is inquisitive and possesses an active imagination. Whatever topic is explored, Dorothy mentally pictures a version of Elmo in an appropriate role or form.

Dorothy is not a Muppet, but is portrayed by a real, live goldfish. (Or, given that ten years is an atypical lifespan for even the most gifted goldfish, one might say that Dorothy has been portrayed by a series of goldfish.)

When represented in books or toys, Dorothy often has a feminine appearance, including big eyelashes. This is also not typical for your average goldfish.

First introduced on "Elmo's World" in 1998, Dorothy has also made appearances in the main Sesame Street storyline, beginning in 2000, thus demonstrating her independent existence outside of Elmo's imagination. Episodes in which Dorothy has played a key role in the main street action include:

Dorothy is the city engineer of NCR in 2241. She oversees the town's power plant and while skilled, she is by no means a genius at repairing broken electronic or mechanical equipment. When first encountered, she is calling for help, since Jack barricaded himself inside the power plant and is threatening to blow himself up along with the generator.

If the quest is solved peacefully, Dorothy rewards the player with a collection of technical manuals she owns.


Her name, and the fact that her robot is called Toto, is a reference to The Wizard of Oz.
