Sesame Workshop has announced “Sesame Street Mecha Builders,” the first of many new Sesame Workshop originals for WarnerMedia’s Cartoonito preschool programming block. The animated show reimagines Elmo, Cookie Monster and Abby Cadabby as robot heroes-in-training who use their STEM superpowers to solve problems.  

Launching later this year, “Bea’s Block” will introduce viewers to a new world where vibrant and diverse wooden block characters tumble, stack and roll their way through kindness-filled adventures.   

Elmo and Tango will also star in “Sesame Street: The Nutcracker,” an animated holiday special that follows the pair on an adventure through the beloved story.  

Sesame Workshop is continuing its Coming Together initiative with a “Word of the Day’’ video series that uses the power of language to help children build positive and healthy senses of self. The company has also collaborated with lifestyle brands like Under Armour’s Curry Brand, Hedley & Bennett, Staple, Starface and Yune Yoga, taking a multigenerational approach to propel the characters forward. Just Play is the new multi-territory master toy licensee for North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. 

Sesame Workshop is exhibiting at Licensing Expo 2022. Find out more information here.
