Deck the Halls with a New Sesame Street Christmas Special

Filed under: News — Tags: , — Joe Hennes @ 4:34 pm


Some of the best, most memorable Sesame Street productions have come out of the joy of Christmas.  The brilliant Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, the bizarre A Special Sesame Street Christmas, and the unarguably perfect Muppet Family Christmas are all must-watches every holiday season.  And now Sesame will continue that tradition with yet another Christmas special.

Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas will take our characters back in time to answer some important questions about how Christmas came to Sesame Street.  Here’s the description from the official press release:

ONCE UPON A SESAME CHRISTMAS opens with the lyrical number “Holiday Lights,” a musical glimpse into the homes of Sesame Street families celebrating winter holidays, and unfolds into a fanciful bedtime story that brings the past alive. After a day of holiday fun, while being tucked into bed on Christmas Eve, Elmo asks, “Why do we leave cookies out for Santa?”

As his father spins a tale about a dreary Sesame Street of yesteryear, a place so unfriendly not even Santa Claus would visit, viewers are transported to a period-perfect 19th-century city neighborhood, with characters in authentic hand-sewn costumes, but marked by unkindness and a serious lack of holiday spirit. Luckily, Elmo’s great-great-great-grandmonster moves into the neighborhood with the best of intentions and endless good will, gradually winning over the unhappy citizens and bringing kindness and cheer to Sesame Street once and for all.

The special will also feature some famous faces, such as Girls‘ Zosia Mamet, Broadway star Audra McDonald, and comedian Jim Gaffigan.

Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas will air on HBO Family on November 25th at 7:00pm, and then it will re-air on November 26th at 6:00pm, November 28th at 8:00am, and December 2nd at 8:00am.  It will also be available on HBO GO.

And good news if you’re not an HBO subscriber: You’ll be able to sample the special for free between December 12th and December 26th via participating affiliates.

And of course, we’ll bring you more info about the special as soon as it becomes available to us!
