She first was named Mooba, in season 32, but was renamed Googel for season 33. The green character from the segments, originally named Groogel, became Phoebe. Ultimately, the segment was short-lived, as kids were unfamiliar with the Muppets and the "frentic pace" of the segments caused concerns.
Since the segment's cancellation, her appearances have been restricted to background character status. She and Mel appear in the background of Lights, Camera, Imagination! 4D (2003). One of the ten monsters in the Furry Monster Parade in "The Street We Live On" to determine the number of the day is Googel; the special commemorated Sesame Street's 35th season.
