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]

  • This was the final season for Mike, Jelani, and Alex.
  • Starting this season, cold open scenes are used to set up the story lines of several episodes. This method would continue through Season 29.
