Sesame Street and Moonbug’s Blippi Partner on New Episodes
Sesame Street favorites Big Bird, Elmo and Abby, along with Herb the Dinosaur, are set to join the Blippi-verse in new episodes and music videos heading to the Blippi and Sesame Street YouTube channels beginning this Saturday, February 3rd.
“We’re beyond excited to work with Sesame Street to bring some of their beloved characters into the curious and adventurous world of Blippi,” said Katelynn Heil, General Manager of Blippi. “I grew up watching Sesame Street and introduced my own kids to it as well, so it is a bit surreal to partner with such an iconic brand. As we celebrate 10 years of Blippi, this partnership is a great example of our joint mission of educating children through song, dance and play.”
“We are always trying to bring our fans new, interesting and engaging partnerships and Blippi fits that mold,” said Jennifer Gioia, Vice President of Multimedia Programming & Content Strategy for Sesame Workshop. “We are thrilled to have our beloved Muppet friends Big Bird, Abby, and Elmo join Blippi’s journey of exploring the world around them.”
From learning the ‘A,’ ‘B,’ and ‘C’s’ and meeting dinosaurs to hosting a special birthday party for Elmo, Blippi, Meekah and their new Sesame Street friends will have little ones singing, learning and exploring! The new episodes include:
Blippi and Meekah’s Birthday Surprise for Elmo!
It’s party time! Abby is excited to throw a surprise birthday party for her friend Elmo, and she wants to make it the best party for her best friend. Blippi and Meekah reassure her that the party is going to be great and pitch in to help! When Elmo gets a very special RED garbage truck (his favorite color!) as a gift, they sing The Garbage Truck Song! Meekah suggests everyone look for a colorful toy before surprising Elmo with one last colorful surprise… a birthday cake!
Blippi and Elmo’s Big ABC Dig
Blippi and Elmo visit Diggerland! They come across an Excavator ride, sing the Excavator Song, and realize ‘Elmo’ and ‘Excavator’ both start with the letter ‘E’! Together they search for other construction vehicles and equipment that begin with ‘A,’ ‘B,’ and ‘C,’ like ‘Aerial Lift,’ ‘Backhoe,’ and ‘Claw’ in ‘Lumberjack Claw’! Blippi and Elmo are ready to ride the excavator ride! They had the best day learning letters of the alphabet!
Blippi and Meekah’s ROARing Dino Day with Big Bird and Elmo
Dino Blippi and Dino Elmo join paleontologist Meekah and dinosaur expert Big Bird to explore Field Station: Dinosaurs with a prehistoric tour guide, Stanley-Saurus, by their side. Curiosity leads the way and they can’t wait to see a little T-Rex, play hide and seek with a dino twist, and explore while learning all about dinosaurs from Stanley-Saurus. All of the dino activity inspires Blippi and Meekah to dance, so everyone stomps along to the Dino Dance Song!
Following the first Blippi and Sesame Street episode and music video debuting this weekend, additional episodes and music videos will be available later this year on the Blippi and Sesame Street YouTube channels.
