Polly Darton is a country-western singer from Sesame Street who appeared as early as Season 12. In the 1990s (from Season 22 to Season 24), she gained a pair of back-up, dog singers, the Git Along Little Doggies.

Darton is a parody of real-life country singer Dolly Parton. The character was the idea of Emily Perl Kingsley.[1]

Although usually performed by Fran Brill, in her song "14 Carrot Love", she was performed by Camille Bonora.
