Physical appearance

Sarah is an aardvark with a brown complexion. She wears a yellow long-sleeved shirt, lavender shorts, long white socks, and pink-and-tanned colored sneakers. She has long dark brown hair and has a lavender bow and headband on her hair.


  • She is also known as Dolly according to early production materials for the TV show.[5] She also goes by this name in the online game Kindergarten Helpers and the special "Arthur's First Day."
  • Her name might be alternatively spelled Sara,[6] or there is simply another preschooler named Sara who spells it without an H.
  • During Career Day in "D.W. Aims High," she can be seen wearing a nurse's hat, which suggests that she may want to become a nurse when she grows up.
