Athena's modified appearance

Athena is Hoots the Owl's granddaughter. She wants to be a singer when she grows up, and looks to Hoots for advice on how to be a great scat singer. She sometimes emcees at Birdland. According to her first appearance in Episode 2304, she bears a strong resemblance to her grandmother (Hoots' wife).

The puppet used for Athena originally appeared in 1981 as Howlie. In season 20, her black beak was replaced with a softer yellow beak and she was given orange pupils, more closely resembling Hoots. Athena was dropped following season 22 and became a utility puppet. She made an appearance in the crowd of the "Sing" finale of Sesame Street: 20 and Still Counting.

In Greek mythology, Athena was the goddess of wisdom, and she was often accompanied by an owl in artistic depictions.
