Polly Darton is a country-western singer from Sesame Street who debuted in Season 13. In the early 1990s (from season 22 to season 24), she gained a pair of back-up, dog singers, the Get Along Little Doggies.
Her songs include "Wavin' Goodbye to You with My Heart," "Just Say Howdy," "Waitin' at the Bus Stop Sign for You," "Music" and "It's Funny."
Darton is a parody of real-life country singer Dolly Parton. The character was the idea of Emily Perl Kingsley.
Although usually performed by Fran Brill, in her song "14 Carrot Love", she was performed by Camille Bonora.
