Sesame Street has been a prominent feature in USJ since the addition of Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic in late April 2003, and is one of the park's more popular character-based franchises along with Hello Kitty and Peanuts. Walk-arounds of Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, The Count, Abby Cadabby, and an original character Moppy appear throughout the park regularly for photo ops and in stage shows, while Grover and Big Bird appear occasionally.
