In her earlier appearances, Goldilocks often irritated Baby Bear by doing everything he did. By the mid-90s, she instead became Baby Bear's friend. Unfortunately for him, she was very eager to help him in any way, even when he didn't need it.
In a 2004 episode, she came back to Sesame Street after visiting her Grandmother Graylocks in Florida. She was slightly redesigned for her later appearances; instead of a straw hat she sported a blue bow in her hair, and her bright yellow curls became gold-colored.
