Zelda Rose is a tall, pink female Muppet with gray hair and a long orange nose. She was given her name in episode 203 of The Muppet Show when she performed "Who?" with her singing owl. In episode 124, she conducted a group of noisy library patrons to the tune of "The Blue Danube." Zelda was often seen in the audience, and in At the Dance skits with various partners.

Zelda made her debut on The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. The puppet had previously been used (without a wig) as a violinist on The Ed Sullivan Show. In episode 115 of The Muppet Show, it was made to look like a farmer performed by Jim Henson. A prototype version of Zelda was used for the Flower-Eating Monster bit on The Julie Andrews Hour.

Zelda was often performed by Louise Gold, and occasionally by Jerry Nelson. Although Abby Hadfield performed her when she sang "Who?" on The Muppet Show, Louise Gold rerecorded her part when the song was released on The Muppet Show 2 record.

In Muppets Tonight episode 208, Zelda made a return appearance (though her name is never mentioned), as Dr. Phil van Neuter's mother.
