DEBUT 1986

Opa Brass ("Opa" meaning Grandpa in German) is an old salt, a veteran sailor who appeared on Sesamstrasse, the German co-production of Sesame Street, initially as a visitor in a few 1986 episodes. He returned as a full resident from 1991 until 2000, having now retired from the sea. He served as a grandfather figure and often peppered his speech with nautical terms.

Opa Brass's wife, Lady Brass, appeared on occasion (played by various actresses).
