Sesame Street Season 22 aired from November 12, 1990, to May 10, 1991.


The theme for this season is about race, about getting along, and appreciating everyone's similarities and differences.[1] Dulcy Singer, the show's executive producer, said about this season's theme, "We're recognizing and celebrating cultural differences - talking about color of skin, hair texture, situations where a child might be left out from a group because of his color."[2]


Episodes 2746 - 2875 (130 episodes)
