The Pumpkin Anything Muppet is an orange rod puppet with a long, oval-shaped head, used on Sesame Street. Though sometimes referred to as "Tall Orange" in fan communities, the official name, according to a 1979 character style guide, is Pumpkin.

A live handed variation of the puppet was first used in Season 35. There's also a pumpkin-orange live hand puppet with a rounded head, similar to the large Lavender live hand puppet, but visually distinct from the typical Pumpkin Anything. In season 40, a variation of the puppet was made, with a wider mouth and modified head.

Examples of the Sesame Street characters developed from the Pumpkin Anything Muppet include the following:

Pumpkin Live Hand

A live hand variant also exists, but has been used less frequently.
