Welcome Grandma
PERFORMER Clarice Taylor
DEBUT 1977

Harriet is David's grandmother on Sesame Street. She lives on a farm, and visits Sesame Street periodically.

She first visited in Episode 0972. At first, she doesn't get an enthusiastic welcome, because nobody had time to help Big Bird put up a "Welcome Grandma" sign. During her visit, she argues with David about whether the country is better than the city, and she plays hopscotch with Mr. Hooper.

Harriet appeared on the show through the season 20. In Episode 2620 (season 21), it was stated that David moved away from the street and onto her farm to help run it.
