Moves on ‘Sesame Street’

Los Angeles Times - - CULTURE MONSTER - — Scott Collins

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.
