David can often be seen laying around in the background on the floor in Elmo's World and several Elmo's World books. Elmo refers to his toy as "Baby David" at the beginning of the song "Planets, Moon and Stars"; it's also called Baby David in the books Potty Time with Elmo and What Makes Elmo Happy?. In Family Forever: A Julia Storybook, Elmo mentions having once lost Baby David, sympathizing with Julia when she loses her own favorite toy, Fluffster the bunny.
