The South African Muppet Zikwe is known by that name on every page about the African co-productions, but the trailer to Sesame Square, has me confused.
In the trailer that is viewable on the show’s Muppet Wiki article, Zikwe is called “Zobi.” And in the article itself, Zobi is listed in a way that makes it look like he is a separate character, even though it’s literally Zikwe’s description with a different name.
So did they change his name? Or did they do something that I couldn’t explain?
I really need help with this [Thread:267033]. Are Zikwe and Zobi the same character with a different name, or are they different characters that have the same personality?
I'm sorry, I did see this thread when you posted it, but I don't know the answer. Maybe it's the same puppet design used for two different characters, or perhaps a name translation the way Elmo is Neno elsewhere. Hopefully one of our contributors more familiar with international Sesame Street knows better.
