Googel appeared in the "Monster Clubhouse" segments of Sesame Street.
She first was named Mooba, in season 32, but was renamed Googel for season 33. The green character from the segments, originally named Groogel, became Phoebe. Ultimately, the segment was short-lived, as kids were unfamiliar with the Muppets and the "frentic pace" of the segments caused concerns.
Since the segment's cancellation, her appearances have been restricted to background character status. She and Mel appear in the background of Lights, Camera, Imagination! 4D (2003). In The Street We Live On, she was featured as one of the ten monsters in the monster parade to determine the Number of the Day. In 2007, the Googel puppet was recycled as Lara for the rest of her appearances. This includes Sesame related videos like the Happy, Healthy, Ready for School resource video Learning is Everywhere and on the christmas special Elmo's Christmas Countdown.
The monster has pink fur with pink hair, an orange nose and green eyelids with eyelashes. The later variant includes Greenish-yellow pigtail ribbons tied on the hair years after the elastic hair bands were applied. On the other hand when Googel slips on mud puddles, the mud puddles are placed on the puppet to indicate that it is dirty which is seen on the Sesame Street community resource video "Learning is Everywhere".
