Baby Natasha first appeared on Sesame Street in season 17. Her parents are Humphrey and Ingrid. She speaks in baby babbles, and loves to blow raspberries.

Natasha is a very fast crawler. Her parents (and even Oscar, who once babysat her) can't even catch up to her. Natasha has also been babysat by Fran Drescher who was well known at the time for playing TV's The Nanny. Snuffy once watched Natasha in the character's first appearance, and tried to teach her to say a new word. She ended up learning two: "Oh, dear." (First: Episode 2215) Since she is too young to understand other people, Natasha does the opposite of what she's told (such as crawling fast, when her parents tell her to crawl slowly). However, it appears that she can understand Frazzle and vice versa, as shown in Episode 3643. In Episode 3662, she is seen growing her first baby, monster horns, which then fall out soon after (thus, leaving spaces for her grown-up, monster horns to come in eventually).

Baby Natasha has appeared in at least four sketches as a superhero known as Super Baby. In one sketch, her parents, Humphrey and Ingrid, have a large bottle of milk, but no baby, and they don't want it to go to waste, so Super Baby arrives and drinks the milk. In another sketch, Humphrey and Ingrid wonder what Superbaby will do that begins with S, which turns out to be "sleep". (First: Episode 3653) In another sketch, Super Grover talks about Super Baby as she constantly flies back and forth. In another sketch, she looks for the letter U. She also appears in Elmo's World: Sky in this persona.

Another segment featured Baby Natasha as the host of a talk show titled "Baby Talk," where her guests included a square and the letter X.

Her latest appearances to date include the street story of Episode 4232 in 2010 and an animated cameo in the 2017 lyric video for "Monster in the Mirror."(YouTube). A revised puppet would be used as Lena on Sesamstrasse.

In 1994, an issue of Sesame Street Parents revealed the poll results of kids' and adults favorite Muppets when asked in an issue of Sesame Street Magazine. Natasha placed fourth in the overall list, but didn't even make the top 20 for adults. By Season 26, Natasha earned a place in the opening credits in some episodes.
