DEBUT 2018

Gabrielle and Prairie Dawn

Gabrielle is a six-year-old[1] girl who first appeared in Sesame Street Episode 4812. She was later given a featured role in the 2020 special The Power of We.

In her first appearance, Gabrielle (voiced here by an unidentified child actress) and her friend Prairie Dawn make up a dance together. When Prairie suggests they move their hair around as part of it, they discover Gabrielle's hair can't whip around the way Prairie's can. They think they'll have to call off their dance, but learn they can incorporate both moves into the dance. They soon get Elmo and Big Bird to join, moving their fur and feathers too.

Now performed by Megan Piphus,[2] Gabrielle shared three brief comments in Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. The special The Power of We introduces her older cousin Tamir. The two live in the same apartment building with their family and are part of the Power of We Club, which holds virtual meetings, as shown in the special and subsequent online videos.

Gabrielle's press bio more specifically places her age as six and 3/4 years old. She also has a gray pet bunny named Harriet.[3]
