Zeliboba (Зелибоба) is a full-bodied character on Ulitsa Sezam, the Russian co-production of Sesame Street. The character was originally created by Ed Christie with a coat of soft brown fur and leaves. When presented to the Russian producers, though, they requested that he be made blue, the color traditionally associated with spirits in Russian culture.
Ed Christie considers Zeliboba his favorite character creation; he remarked that it resembles a large moving mulch pile.
