Italy is a country in southern Europe, famous for having blessed the world with the Latin alphabet, Roman culture (see Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael Sanzio, Giovanni Bellini and Sandro Botticelli), as well as with spaghetti and pizza.
Other notable Italian Muppet connections include:
- Sesamo Apriti began airing in 1971.
- Spaghettini, a worm from Italy, was one of the brave worm astronauts who traveled to the Moon in the wormship Wiggleprise. He also participated in the Worm's Summer Games.
- German Sesamstrasse character Wolf vom Wörtersee originally hails from Italy, as evidenced by his strong Italian accent and love for the country's cuisine.
- In the original Pajanimals musical shorts from 2008, Cow Bella has an Italian accent. In the 2011 series, however, she appears to have lost it.
