The famously fleeced residents of Sesame Street are being treated to a remodel after 45 seasons. Changes to the iconic neighborhood’s set include a new nest for Big Bird and a new community center. They are meant to offer young viewers a better sense of the Muppets’ homes. “Anchoring our core characters in places around our neighborhood will help kids build an even deeper bond with our characters by better understanding who they are, where they live, and what they do,” Carol-Lynn Parente, executive producer of Sesame Street, said.

In addition to a more vibrant overall look, changes include: a new garden for Abby, a renovated Hooper’s Store with Cookie Monster dwelling upstairs, a rooftop sitting area, a newsstand and a new location for Oscar’s garbage can. The neighborhood’s most ticklish inhabitant, Elmo’s new digs are the cornerstone of the 123 Sesame Street brownstone. They are full of colourful cubbies and artwork. Season 46 of Sesame Street will bow this fall on PBS Kids.
