Rua Sésamo is the Portuguese co-production of Sesame Street.

It aired for only a short period of time, from 1989 until 1994. It was broadcast by RTP. Series 2 debuted on December, 1990 with 125 episodes.

Poupas was a full-body character who was nearly identical to Big Bird, except for his orange feathers, his blue and purple feathers on his tail and head and black-and-pink eyelids. Ferrão was a brown Grouch who lived in crates on Rua Sésamo. Tita was a female cat performed by Filipa Melo. She joined the series the very last year.

Tita also appeared on the US Sesame Street special Sesame Street Stays Up Late!.
