Moves on ‘Sesame Street’
Elmo and Cookie Monster are getting new cribs: “Sesame Street” is revamping the sets for the PBS’ preschool show’s 46th season this fall.
Sesame Workshop, which produces the show, wants to anchor characters in homes so that kids get a better sense of community and what it means to live in a place.
“In today’s world where changes are fast and frequent, a sense of place and belonging is more important to kids than ever,” Sesame Workshop said in its announcement.
Cookie Monster will live in an apartment above Hooper’s Store. Elmo has moved into the brownstone at 123 Sesame Street and has hung crayon artwork on the walls. Big Bird has a colorful new nest, and Oscar’s trash can has been moved to a more central location. The curmudgeon might even pop up in recycling bins.
