A show like Sesame Street doesn’t exactly go together with shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld. You’re not going to find many adults watching Sesame Street without some tiny humans nearby, and you’d feel bad for any kid who accidentally wanders into an episode of Thrones or Westworld.
But with all three of the shows currently housed at HBO, anything is possible. Sesame Street is doing a campaign called “Respect Brings Us Together” as part of its 50th anniversary celebration. And who better to teach a lesson in respect to in a pair of recently released crossover videos than Game of Thrones siblings Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), and Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright) from Westworld?

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.

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.

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).
