Dani- chills in his hotel room
PERFORMER Gabriel Velez
DEBUT 1998

Dani is an asthmatic Anything Muppet boy befriended by Elmo and Rosita in A Is for Asthma. He's also bilingual. Dani features heavily in the accompanying booklet and visual materials. Dani is made from the orange live-hand Anything Muppet pattern.

Dani has a positive outlook on life and does all the fun and good things kids like to do. He does not let asthma get him down.

Dani returned in 2016, once again by Gabriel Velez (assisted by Peter Linz), in an internet video with Rosita for the Sesame Street in Communities website.

There were two versions of Dani; one a live-hand Muppet used for the outreach videos, and a rod puppet used on a nationwide tour.
