Wolf vom Wörtersee is a green wolf with a strong Italian accent who lives in a hut by the Wörtersee ("Words-Lake," as the title of the segment is a pun on the show "Das Schloss am Wörthersee" about a castle located nearby famous Austrian lake Wörthersee).

Introduced on Sesamstrasse in 2007, Wolf stars in a recurring series of four-minute segments. He is an avid skateboarder and loves spaghetti with tomato sauce, and often converses with the lake's Wörterfee (a "word fairy" living in the lake, played by Felicitas Woll).

The "Wolf vom Wörtersee" segments focus primarily on the alphabet and words.

The same puppet was later used for Wolf on Eine Moehre fuer Zwei, and on Sesame Street's Homelamb.
