Filed under: News — Tags: — Joe Hennes @ 11:58 am

Sesame Street just announced the premiere of its 48th season – November 11th on HBO (and PBS nine months later).  And we’ve got a ton of information to get through, so let’s look!


Sesame Workshop provided 11 select episode descriptions, which you can read below.  As you can see, there are some fun spotlights for Oscar, The Count, and the Yip Yip Martians coming up this season.

A Sesame Street Thanksgiving – Sesame Street is getting ready for a Thanksgiving feast. When Rosita worries her Abuela cooked something that her friends would find strange, Big Bird, Alan, and Nina explain that all families have their own wonderful family traditions.

Rosita’s Sneaky Sneakers – Cinderella, played by Lucy Liu, doesn’t want to be a princess anymore – she wants to ditch her fancy shoes and play! With a trip to the shoe store for some comfy sneakers, Rosita helps Cinderella realize that she can be a princess and play with her new friends.

Martian Mission – Martians land on Sesame Street to figure out what the people of Earth are like. Elmo shows them that despite speaking many languages, having different skin colors, and coming in lots of shapes and sizes, all kinds of people can be friends.

Clothing Drive – When Rudy outgrows his favorite sweater, Nina suggests holding a clothing drive in the neighborhood. Everyone’s extra clothes can find a new home with neighbors who need them. Rudy’s sweater goes to a little girl who is very excited to wear it.

My Family Does It Like This – Abby’s family is having dinner at Elmo’s house. Elmo and Abby discover that even though their families do things differently, they can have fun working together to get the meal ready.

The Last Straw – When Ernie makes too much noise during Bert’s naptime, Bert angrily leaves in search of a quiet place to sleep. While they’re apart, Bert and Ernie think about how their actions made the other feel. They apologize to each other, learning that even though they had a fight, they can still be friends.

Hair Training – Prairie and her friend Gabrielle are practicing a dance, but their hair doesn’t move the same way. Nina helps them realize that the dance is even more fun when they each let their hair do what it wants to do! Elmo and Big Bird join in and let their fur and feathers fly free.

It’s Dance Your Favorite Dance Day – Nina knows dances from all around the world, and on “Dance Your Favorite Dance Day,” she teaches her friends on Sesame Street the moves to all their favorites.

Oscar the Kind – When Oscar the Grouch gets sick, he doesn’t feel grouchy anymore … he feels kind! Elmo and Baby Bear see how easy and fun it is to be kind to others.

Abby and Zoe Love Karate – Nina teaches Abby and Zoe all about karate. After learning how to focus and practice, Abby and Zoe manage to kick a ball off a stand with a special karate kick.

The Count’s Counting Error – Upset by his first-ever counting mistake, the Count tries to find another job. He soon finds out that many other jobs include counting, too.


The full list of announced celebrities for season 48 include:

  • Elizabeth Banks (starring in the new Sesame Street special… more on this soon)
  • Leon Bridges (singing a new Thanksgiving song)
  • Lucy Liu (as a reluctant Cinderella)
  • Kate McKinnon (as Mother Goose)

Not a bad casting call, right??

New Cookie Monster segment

Cookie Monster and Gonger (originally from UK’s The Furchester Hotel) team up to start their own food truck in “Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck”!  In each episode, a kid will place an order, but the monster duo will realize they’re missing an ingredient, and they have to visit a real-world location to see where their food comes from.  There’s also a catapult involved.

There’s a lot to look forward to with the new season of Sesame Street!  We’ll have more about this year’s content soon!
