Like other TV stars, the cast members of Sesame Street have been self-isolating at home – but they’ll come together today in a half-hour Zoom-like special (and we don’t mean Zoom, the classic public TV kids series).
Sesame Street: Elmo’s Playdate will air at 7 pm ET on the PBS Kids 24/7 over-the-air channel, and stream on PBSKids.org, and the PBS Kids video app. It will also be simulcast on cable channels HBO, HBO Latino, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and truTV.
In addition to Sesame Street regulars like Grover, Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby, Elmo will also welcome Anne Hathaway, Tracee Ellis Ross and Lin-Manuel Miranda (leading a few rounds of “Old McDonald Had a Farm”).
Sesame Workshop also recently launched a “Caring for Each Other” resource at sesamestreet.org/caring. It includes several videos, including this message from Oscar the Grouch:
