Sesame Street, Blippi partner on YouTube content
February 2, 2024
Sesame Street favourites 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 on 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,” added 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.”
The new episodes include:
