The most populous city in Canada, Toronto has played host to the filming of many Muppet and Henson productions.

The Toronto Santa Claus Parade is an annual tradition, and has featured appearances from Sesame Street cast members. Kidomo has the Canadian rights to live meet-and-greet appearances of Sesame Street characters; Ontario Place theme park has hosted special appearances since 2008 of Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Abby Cadabby.[1]
