Sesame Street Elmos Playdate Preview CaringForEachOther

Elmo's Playdate is a simulcast Sesame Street primetime special airing on April 14, 2020. The special was televised on PBS stations and the WarnerMedia networks HBO, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, and truTV. The special also appeared on HBO's on-demand and streaming services, and was released on HBO Max at launch.[1] The special is also available on the PBS Kids streaming service.

An extension of the Caring for Each Other initiative, launched in March in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the half-hour special features Elmo and his Sesame Street friends having a virtual playdate. Anne Hathaway, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Tracee Ellis Ross guest star. The special also features an edited version of Taye Diggs' cover of "Let's Go Driving." When aired on PBS, this outro was shown after the credits: Cookie Monster recites a poem about being kind, and demonstrates kindness by sharing a cookie with Rosita and a boy.

Elmo's Playdate: Scavenger Hunt, a follow-up special, premiered in August 2020.
