Zeliboba, Muppet designer Ed Christie’s favorite puppet (he also created Abby Cadabby for the American version), is a furry blue spirit, whose color and personality is derived from Russian folklore. Ulitsa Sezam has a strong arts and culture focus that manifests itself in Muppet Businka’s art segments, which feature viewers’ art and Zeliboba’s collection of colorful neckties, which hang in a tie museum.
