Teena- Japan Sesame Street Japan
Teena is a young girl Muppet who represents kawaii or the ideal of cuteness in Japanese culture. Teena dresses in all pink, wears flowers in her pigtails and loves flowers. For Sesame Street Japan, Sesame Workshop also created other distinctly Japanese muppets, such as Arthur and Pierre, a comedic duo who employ manzai, a quick-talking Japanese stand-up style. These characters interact with their American counterparts Elmo, Bird Bird and Cookie Monster on the bilingual show —the introduction is in English, for example.
