DEBUT 1972
PATTERN Orange Gold

Prince Charming is the hero and love interest in many fairy tale stories. In the first decade of Sesame Street, he made recurring appearances in sketches and street scenes, portrayed as a waspy, upper crust elite.

This persona first appeared in a Sesame Street News Flash sketch involving Rapunzel. He appeared in a few more News Flash sketches, attempting to woo such damsels as Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. According to Episode 1312, his monarchy hails from the Land of Nod. His horses are named Lance and Duke.

He made his last appearance to date in this form in a "Fairytale Update" sketch in season 24 (revisiting his first flame, Rapunzel).

Originally, the Prince Charming puppet was a redressed version of Guy Smiley, another Orange Gold Anything Muppet, except with different clothes. The puppet would later have slightly modified facial features to better distinguish the two.
