Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Preschool­ers can ex­plore an up­dated ver­sion of Elmo’s World when the new sea­son of “Sesame Street” de­buts next year. Sesame Work­shop says it’s mak­ing new episodes of the pop­u­lar seg­ment for the first time since 2009.

Also re­turn­ing is Tony Award-win­ning per­former Bill Ir­win, who played Elmo’s friend, Mr Noo­dle. Sesame Work­shop says 25 5-minute Elmo’s World seg­ments will be pro­duced in which Elmo will teach kids through match­ing, sort­ing and count­ing games. Re­peats of orig­i­nal Elmo’s World seg­ments will also be in­cluded in some episodes of the up­com­ing sea­son. “Sesame Street” will in­clude a new “kind­ness cur­ricu­lum” this year aimed at fos­ter­ing “be­hav­iors that can have sig­nif­i­cant out­comes through­out a child’s life.” Sea­son 47 of “Sesame Street” pre­mieres on HBO in Jan­uary. — AP
