During this challenging time, what if kids could connect with their Sesame Street pals for a virtual playdate filled with fun, stories, and songs? Coming to you from Elmo’s Apartment in the heart of Sesame Street, join Elmo, his friends, and his special celebrity guests for thirty minutes of dancing, laughing, singing…and even snacks with Cookie Monster! “Sesame Street: Elmo’s Playdate” will premiere Tuesday, Apr. 14 at 6 p.m. on Arizona PBS KIDS channel and livestream. The special be repeated throughout the week. It’s a virtual hug to kids and families to show we can all get through this together, chase the clouds away, and bring a “sunny day” from Sesame Street to you and your family.
Celebrating everyone from the EMTs, doctors, and other everyday heroes who are helping families through the health crisis as well as things like the simple pleasures of baking cookies at home, the playdate takes the form of a cozy video conference that will feel very familiar to today’s viewers.
