Shagri-las
DEBUT 1990
Shangrila-ear

A Shagri-La member shows off an ear.

The Shagri-Las are a trio of furry blue monster girls who have sung a few times on Sesame Street.

Their first appearance was a scene at Birdland in season 21, where they sang a song about fur. In a subsequent season, they performed "Brush Boogie." In Episode 2749, one of them appears to sing "Sound It Out" to a clarinet player named Dan, who is learning to read.

Their name is a reference to the 1960s pop girl group The Shangri-Las.

Notes

  • All three singers' voices are dubbed. Ivy Austin performed one of them.
  • The Shagri-Las are among the very few monsters with visible ears.
  • All three puppets later appeared with different features as members of Rosita's family. One was used frequently as an AM monster.
  • Their design is very similar to Mel, though Mel possesses horns, a chubbier body and a thinner face.
