Abby Cadabby, mostly referred to as just Abby, is a 4-year-old Muppet character in the PBS children's television show Sesame Street. In 2006, Abby made her debut in the first episode of Sesame Street’s 37th season, when she moved into the neighborhood and met some of the Street's residents. On the day of her debut, her wand broke; Big Bird told her to take her wand to the Fix-It Shop where Maria would fix it. Season 40 features her CGI animated recurring segments titled Abby's Flying Fairy School which were adapted into their own spin-off.

As a Muppet

Abby first appeared in 2006 on the 123 Sesame Street float, and is normally seen in Big Bird's Nest alongside Big Bird himself and Elmo.

As a Balloon

For the 81st Parade, a balloon of the character debuted (Alongside Hello Kitty and Shrek) and was the lead balloon that year, which features her flying down the Parade route with her magical wand. This balloon replaced the Big Bird balloon which meant it appeared after or before the Sesame Street float. It appeared for 3 parades and was retired after the 2009 parade. The Sesame Street float is now preceded by a non-Muppet balloon.
