PERFORMER Kathryn Mullen
DEBUT 1990

Lila is a monster who one day is playing a game of wubba ball in the park with her fellow blue monster friends when Elmo comes along and asks if he can play. One of the monsters, Britta, refuses to let him join in, saying only blue monsters are allowed. However, Lila doesn't think fur color should make any difference, and since the wubba ball is hers, she insists that Elmo be allowed in the game. The other monsters agree and invite Elmo to join in.

The Anything Muppet monster puppet used for Lila would be recycled nearly a decade later for the first incarnation of Lulu; both of them share similar features.
