Maher Mozwaq and Melsoon

Melsoon is a parrot who appears on Iftah Ya Simsim, the Kuwaiti co-production of Sesame Street.

Prior to the show's 2015 revival, he was a yellow-green parrot named Malsun. Since 2015, he is blue. Lara MacLean built the puppet for the revival, with an eyebrow mechanism devised by Tom Newby.[1]
