Loretta Long (born June 3, 1940) is an American actress best-known for playing Susan Robinson on Sesame Street, having starred on the show since its debut in 1969.

Born in Paw Paw, Michigan, she earned her Ph.D. in Urban Education in 1973 from the University of Massachusetts, while she was starring on Sesame Street. She has acted in musicals such as Guys and Dolls and appeared on the Flip Wilson Show with other Sesame Street cast members during its first season.

On Sesame Street, Long's character, Susan, along with Bob (Bob McGrath) and Big Bird/Oscar (Caroll Spinney), is one of only three remaining cast members who were on the first show and have been played by the same actors since the show began. She has performed a couple of puppet voices on the show, including Suzetta and Roosevelt Franklin's mother.

Long, in addition to starring on Sesame Street, is a consultant and public speaker on issues of multiculturalism and education.

On February 10, 2010, Long was struck by a car as she crossed Route 130 in East Windsor, New Jersey, suffering head wounds as a result. She was listed in fair condition following the accident.[1]
