Susan Robinson is married to Gordon, and works as a nurse. In season 17, Susan and Gordon adopted a son, Miles. Susan has appeared on Sesame Street since the earliest test programs in 1969.

Susan's parents are Dorothy and Lee. They live in Michigan and visited Sesame Street in a 1985 episode and a 1991 episode.

In the earliest episodes of the show, Susan was a housewife. By Season 2,[1] she became a public health nurse, so that the character might serve as a better role model for young girls in the viewing audience. Among her projects was offering a Measles Vaccination Clinic in Episode 0343. Susan also worked as a mechanic on the street, commonly fixing cars and even the bus when Big Bird went to camp.

She also headlined her own album, Susan Sings Songs from Sesame Street, and had minor roles in both Sesame Street movies. Although she is still a regular on the show, since season 29 she has been appearing in only a few episodes per season, in part because fewer shows are produced now. She only appeared in 1 episode during the 39th, 40th, and 41st seasons, and appeared in four episodes during Season 42. She did not make any new appearances in Season 43.

During the early seasons, she often sang "One of These Things."
