Although he's not shown in full view, Abby's daddy has only been seen in live action when tucking his daughter in to bed when she stays at his place in "The Bird Family" song.

Abby Cadabby's father is divorced from her mother. Their separation and living situation was the subject of the 2012 resource video Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce.

In the video it is revealed that Abby spends part of her time living with her daddy at his house and part of her time living with her mommy at her house. Although Abby's parents are no longer married and live in different houses, Abby learns that they both still love her.

Abby shows Elmo, Rosita, and Gordon a drawing of her daddy and their house; and while Abby's father is not directly shown in the video, his green hands are shown in a point-of-view shot tucking Abby into bed while Abby sings a song about her family situation.

In a 2019 online video produced for Sesame Street in Communities, when Abby's family (now including step-relatives Rudy and Freddy) are about to head to a baseball game, Abby laments her father's absence, mentioning that he loves baseball. Abby's mom consoles her and assures her that her dad will continue to be a big part of her life. (YouTube)



Abby Cadabby's Rhyme Time

The 2007 storybook Abby Cadabby's Rhyme Time ends with "the family Cadabby" tucking Abby in bed for the night. Although he isn't identified as Abby's father, a male figure with lavender skin joins Abby's mommy in the room. He's also pictured on a wall-mounted portrait of the family with Abby as a baby.

The same individual appears in the 2020 book What is Family on Sesame Street? in Abby's two separate drawings of her two homes: one with her mom, stepdad, and stepbrother, and the other with the purple man standing alone.
