The Sandman is a magical being who appears in episode 3059 of Sesame Street.

Savion is unable to get Baby Natasha to take her nap, cueing the Sandman to arrive. He throws a pinch of his sleeping sand toward Natasha, but misses her eyes (which would instantly put her to sleep). Savion borrows some of his sand to do a quiet tap dance with, hoping it'll lull Natasha to sleep. When that fails, the Sandman makes another attempt. Natasha instead blows the sand at him, putting him to sleep.
