Trivia:

The Muppet "Zoe" was originally modeled after Fran herself. The producers of "Sesame Street" wanted to name the character "Franny," but
  • in a display of modesty, maybe? - she decided to change the name.


Recalling J.D. Salinger's book "Franny and Zooey," she suggested "Zoe" as an alternate name, and it stuck. See more »
