I've seen at least two sources that refer to this toy as Baby David. That's his name in the Potty Time with Elmo book (reference), and in a StoryReader cartridge called Learn with Elmo (reference).
Anybody interested in moving this article to Baby David? -- Danny (talk) 06:52, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
That's interesting, but in the toy's very first appearance (which Guillermo uploaded here; the second clip), the name is explicitly just David, named after David (though Elmo does refer to the toy as his "new babydoll.") In general, the doll appears as a background prop more often than it's named, so I'd be hesitant to move this (especially since my own inclination is that the original on-screen appearance trumps recent merchandise) without further evidence gathering. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 07:21, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
I think a redirect from Baby David is best in this case given the illustrated vs on-screen evidence. —Scott (talk) 03:38, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I agree. I made the redirect. -- Danny (talk) 06:34, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
Ack. I just recently caught a video clip on Sesamestreet.org in which Elmo refers to his doll as Baby David. I can't find it right now, but I'll be on the lookout. —Scott (talk) 23:59, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Ah, here it is. (sesamestreet.org) Now that we have on-screen evidence, I'd support a move to Baby David which is a better name to disambiguate than David (toy) anyway. —Scott (talk) 06:11, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
