Lillian

PERFORMER Lillias White
DEBUT 1990
Lillian Edwards appeared on Sesame Street from 1990 to 1993, first appearing in Episode 2681.
“Lillian ran a home care from her apartment on Sesame Street and was introduced in 1990 when Maria was seeking a good daycare for Gabi. A kindly woman with a Jamaican accent, Lillian took care of human children and monsters alike for four seasons. In 1993, Angela became the street’s new home care provider.”

From 1989-93, Ms. White voiced the pink lead singer of the Squirrelles and received a Daytime Emmy Award for the role in 1992. The fuzzy girl group inspired by the Shirelles performed such numbers as “Don’t Be a Tough Nut to Crack,” a spoof of “Will You Love Me Tomorrow.”
