Wolle is a witty sheep character from Sesamstrasse, the German co-production of Sesame Street. He is Pferd's best friend, and together they form a comic duo. Wolle considers himself smarter than Pferd, but a lot of the time he makes the same mistakes. Wolle can often be found playing "Super-Schaf" (Super Sheep) or "Detektiv Wolle" (Detective Wolle).

Trivia

  • Martin Paas, who performs Wolle, and Carsten Morar-Haffke (Pferd's performer) also script the Pferd & Wolle scenes.
  • Martin Paas originally auditioned for the role of Pferd, who was designed to be a solo character. He and Morar-Haffke were the two finalists in the audition. When Paas picked up a random Muppet sheep to interact with Pferd, the producers were so impressed that they decided to hire both puppeteers and use the sheep as a character.
  • The German word "Wolle" means wool, and is also a nickname for Wolfgang.
  • Since late 2010, Wolle has been rebuilt with more seperated eyes and a more white appearance.
