A staple of countless childhoods, Sesame Street has been on the air for over four decades, all of which being seen on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). That will change next month, when the show moves to premium cable channel HBO.
The new deal with HBO will see new episodes of a brand new season airing first on its new home, and then eventually being aired later at its familiar home on PBS. Subscribers to HBO will also have access to classic episodes of the show for the little ones to watch while waiting for new episodes.
HBO has now released the first trailer for the new Sesame Street, which can be seen below.
After more than four decades, one of Sesame Street‘s most lovable non-Muppet residents is moving on. Commence tears…
Actress Sonia Manzano, who has played the role of Maria Figueroa-Rodriguez for the past 44 years, recently announced at the American Library Association Annual Conference that she will be retiring from the show. Manzano joined the cast of Sesame Street in 1971 but didn’t become a series regular until three years later. On the show, her character runs the Fix-It Shop with her adoring husband Luis (Emilio Delgado, who has also been a cast member since 1971).
Sesame Street has done it again. The geniuses who produce the best in children’s programming since the 60s have found a niche with adults; spoofing their favorite pop culture shows. “True Mud,” “Mad Men” (about emotions), and recently “House of Bricks,” a House of Cards parody starring the Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf. Now, in anticipation of Avengers: Age of Ultron, opening the Friday; Sesame Street brings you “The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon.”
