What Sesame Street Character is Named "Gigolo?"

Kind of a nerdy title, I know, but that’s exactly what we’ve been trying to do this week. This morning was no exception. It was quite hilarious actually.

Last night, Cora was playing with a stuffed pink poodle. She has given names to a few of her toys: her pug dog purse is named “Pepper”(pretty sure was named after Aunt Lil’s dog) and her baby doll is “Red”(used to be her favorite color to say)---- so Geron asked her what this one’s name was. She piped up something that sounded KIND OF like “doggie”, but wasn’t sure that’s what she’d said. So, he asked her again. “Dophie” was her answer. “Dorothy?” Geron asked. “Dophie!” said Cora. I tried for the life of me to figure out where she’d learned the name “Dorothy”. I could only think of a lady in our church who Cora doesn’t know very well, yet. I was pretty sure it wasn’t from her. Eventually, I remembered Elmo’s goldfish on Sesame Street is named “Dorothy”. AHA! Geron was way ahead of me on it.

So this morning, Cora was in the living room getting into all the baby stuff we were working on. We wanted to find something to entertain her, so we so her to go get her puppy. We asked her what her puppy’s name was and she said “Jig-lo”. Geron and I looked at each other for a second and then, Geron said it… “gigolo?” We were very quick to remind her the puppy’s name was “Dorothy” . Now, we’re trying to find out which Wonder Pet, monster on Sesame Street, or dinosaur on Barney has been talking about gigolos.

Any guesses what she was trying to say?

Jello makes sense since Cora has eaten jello. I'll go with that for now over Gigolo.

Could be she just made up a name--it is sort of fun to say. I remember a little girl that had a doll named Ishy and Tinny, as well as one named Donut. And her favorite baby doll for a long time was one named Christopher.

Ask Ann why Cora named the pink dog Gigolo--she had a pretty good idea while ago. Love you.
