Sesame Street Season 31 aired from January 3, 2000, to May 12, 2000.


The main focus of the season's curriculum is "children getting along in their world," dealing with themes of conflict resolution, entering social groups and understanding feelings. The season also promotes the uses and abilities of personal computers, and using the arts (such as dance, music art) to help teach.[2]


Episodes 3851 - 3915 (65 episodes)


  • The second season of Elmo's World includes ten new segments about Singing, Dogs, Exercise, Babies, Bananas, Drawing, Flowers, Plants & Trees, Telephones, Farms, and Hair.
  • This was the last season to use the sendoff "Sesame Street is a production of the Children's Television Workshop," due to CTW changing its name to Sesame Workshop the next season.
  • This was also the final season to feature the 1992 credit sequence, unedited (later seasons, as well as subsequent reruns of this season, would edit it to remove references to the Children's Television Workshop.)
  • Also due to the name change, the top of the Sesame Street sign, bearing the company's initials "CTW," would be changed to "123" next season.
  • This was the final season to use the disclaimer "CTW provides partial funding for Sesame Street through its self-support activities" at the end of the credits.
  • After this season, Richard Hunt is no longer credited as a performer.
  • All episodes in this season were shown in one of Noggin's 123 Sesame Street rotations from 2003 to 2005.
