A TV star who sometimes appears in "Elmo's World".

    • She has the same job and surname as Bubbles Martin, meaning she could be related to her in some way.

  • A Day in the Limelight: One season 32 episode was basically dedicated the duo. Several of their sketches were shown, they introduced segments hosted by other characters, and they even presented both the Letter and Number of the Day. The plot of the episode itself had Zoe become obsessed with Suzie and wanting to be just like her, even wearing her own version of Suzie's beret and essentially forcing other characters to play the role of Feff.

A talking typewriter with eyes, arms and wheels. He appears in 26 sketches, one for each letter of the alphabet.

Willie Wimple

A character who features in three songs with environmental messages. He chops down trees and litters, and the songs tell kids not to do what he does, because the world would be terrible if every kid did what Willie does.
