Sesame Street Season 36 premiered on April 4, 2005.


This season's key focus, in response to studies in child obesity in America, is based on healthy habits. Each episode begins with a cold opening featuring a cast member (Muppet or human) mentioning a different healthy habit each time, whether it's exercise, food, or sleep. Additionally, several episodes feature a "Health Module," a group of four inserts pertaining to themes of healthy habits.[1] This key focus of healthy habits is also highlighted in several Street scenes (such as Episode 4083, Episode 4085, Episode 4089, and Episode 4092).

The season was met with wide reports that Cookie Monster would suddenly be executing a complete about-face: espousing healthy eating and moderation, trading in his trademark "C is for Cookie" in favor of a new song, "A Cookie is a Sometime Food," and (depending on the source) even going on a diet. For more on this issue see Is Cookie Monster now the Veggie Monster?.

New Elmo's World segments include the subjects of Cats, Cameras, Jumping, Skin, and School. New installments of "Global Grover" include visits to Bangladesh, England, France, Netherlands, and Tibet.


Parody sketches and segments include "A Cookie is a Sometimes Food" (a parody of A Woman is a Sometime Thing), "Stretch, Wiggle, Yay!" (a parody of YMCA), "Dancin'" (a parody of Fallin by Alicia Keys), "Desperate Houseplants" (a parody of Desperate Housewives), "Grouch Eye for the Nice Guy" (a parody of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), "24" (a parody of 24), and a Grouch take on The Apprentice. A Dragnet spoof titled "Cookie Monster: Food Investigator" was announced for the season, but did not air.
