Denmark is a European country and is the smallest of the Nordic countries. Denmark consists of 1419 islands of various sizes (excluding Greenland and the Faroe Islands), of which 443 are named and only 76 are inhabited. The country also includes the peninsula of Jutland which connects Denmark to Germany and the rest of Europe.

Kevin Clash traveled to Denmark in June 2009, to cast a puppeteer for the part of Elmo, on Sesamgade a new co-production that premiered on TV 2 October 18, 2009.

The last few seconds of the opening sequence of the Danish dub of Open Sesame, Sesam, luk dig op, were customized with Danish landmarks.

Jeff Marx and Bobby Lopez wrote songs and a story outline for a Muppet film called Kermit, Prince of Denmark, based on Shakespeare's Hamlet, which takes place at the Danish castle Kronborg.

The Danish author Hans Christian Andersen has also been mentioned on both The Muppet Show and Sesame Street. Among the more notable mentions is the Sesame Street album Big Bird presents Hans Christian Andersen.
