Troel the white poodle and a very young Sien Diels

Troel2

First version of Troel and the second version

Troel was a poodle character on Sesamstraat, the Dutch co-production of Sesame Street.

Troel is a fluffy white girl poodle. She is very feminine and a little naïve, and she has a cute high voice. Her best friend is Tommie.

Troel was introduced during the second season in 1977 as the first girl Muppet to star with Tommie and Pino. She was designed to look like a girl version of Tommie.

Even though the viewers had no problems with her, the producers found her too feminine for a show that dealt with female emancipation, so she disappeared after a year.

Troel was replaced by Ieniemienie a couple of years later.

The Dutch word "troel" means "dear" or "sweetheart" in a more informal, sometimes even negative way.
