Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit organization behind “Sesame Street” and Australian children’s music group, The Wiggles have released a reimagining of The Wiggles’ song, “Fruit Salad.” Starring The Wiggles – Anthony Field, Lachlan Gillespie, Simon Pryce, Emma Watkins and “Sesame Street’s” Cookie Monster, Abby and Elmo, the video virtually features fruit being dropped and passed between screens. The song is part of a two-music video collaboration honoring the two shows’ combined 80 years of children’s entertainment.
“‘Fruit Salad’ is one of our most popular songs ever. For many, it is the first song that comes to mind when they think of The Wiggles,” says Anthony Field, Blue Wiggle and founding member, The Wiggles. “We are so excited to share a new and updated take on this classic that includes the vibe and feel that only ‘Sesame Street’ can provide.”
Both brands recently celebrated milestones, with “Sesame Street” marking its 50th season in Australia last year and The Wiggles kicking off their 2021 celebration of 30 years.
“We can’t wait to share the laughter and learning of this latest music collaboration with The Wiggles with all of our fans, available today on YouTube,” says Jenny Gioia, vice president of multimedia programming, Sesame Workshop. “Fruit never looked so fun!”
Fans can also enjoy a playlist of Favorite Songs from 'Sesame Street' and The Wiggles, featuring 20 tunes, available on both the “Sesame Street” and The Wiggles YouTube channels.
