Nu'man is a Muppet camel on Iftah Ya Simsim, the Kuwaiti coproduction of Sesame Street. He's a Full-bodied Muppet, the Iftah Ya Simsim equivalent of Big Bird.

During the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard, the costume was stolen. As of August 2009, it hadn't been recovered.[1]

For the 2015 revival of the show a new costume was made as the show wouldn't be the same without the character.
