An early iteration of Goldilocks in Episode 2391.


Goldilocks was Baby Bear's nemesis on Sesame Street. The character is a takeoff on the classic fairy tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears".

In her earlier appearances, Goldilocks often irritated Baby Bear by doing everything he did. By the mid-90s, she instead became Baby Bear's friend. Unfortunately for him, she was very eager to help him in any way, even when he didn't need it.

Goldilocks first appeared as Baby Bear's adversary in episode 2866, and was featured regularly on the show from Season 23 to Season 29. She only made occasional appearances afterwards, including episode 3914, where she becomes incensed upon realizing that the Big Bad Wolf had filled in for her while she was on vacation.

In episode 4066, she returns to Sesame Street, after visiting her Grandmother Graylocks in Florida, and is introduced to Curly Bear. In episode 4098, Goldilocks starts taking over other nursery rhymes, sitting on Little Miss Muffet's tuffet, and eating Little Jack Horner's pie. She was slightly redesigned for her later appearances; her bright yellow curls became gold-colored, and she occasionally sports a blue bow in her hair instead of a straw hat. Her appearance in Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration, however, hearkens back to her earlier design.

Many years prior, another Anything Muppet version of Goldilocks appeared alongside the Three Bears in a pair of sketches for season three. Here, she was made from a Hot Pink AM, lip-syncing to a recorded track of a female actor. Several years later, another Muppet version of Goldilocks appeared in Episode 2391, performed by Camille Bonora.
