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 Kittyand Peanuts. Walk-arounds of Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster, Bert,Ernie, Grover, Big Bird, The Count and Abby Cadabby appear regularly at the park in shows and in meet-and-greet photo op sessions, as well as in park parades and seasonal shows.
