Polly Darton's estate, seen in episode 2823.

Polly Darton is a country-western singer from Sesame Street who first appeared in season 12. During the early 1990s, Polly began making recurring appearances on the street, where she gained a pair of back-up, dog singers, the Git Along Little Doggies.

Darton is a parody of real-life country singer Dolly Parton. The character was the idea of Emily Perl Kingsley.[1]

Polly made a cameo in Sesame Street: 25 Wonderful Years and appeared in newly recorded songs for Kids' Favorite Songs and Elmo's Lowdown Hoedown.

Although usually performed by Fran Brill, Camille Bonora performed the character for two season 22 appearances - Episode 2794 and the song "14 Carrot Love."
