Sesame Street's 41st season began production in September 2009; episodes premiered on September 27, 2010.[1]


The season continues the show's two-year initiative “My World is Green & Growing,” an initiative embracing a robust science and mathematics curriculum. For season 41, Sesame Street will address the processes of scientific investigation, with 13 shows focused on this topic. One of the main curricular goals is to encourage children to think scientifically and to model the scientific process.[2]

The 4th Annual aniBOOM Awards, aniBOOM Awards 4 Sesame Street, decided a new educational, animated short that will debut this season,[3] a stop-motion remake of "Pinball Number Count".[4] The other finalists also appear during the season.

A new segment, Super Grover 2.0, debuted this season and alternates with new segments of Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures with each episode. Abby's Flying Fairy School returns from last season with three new segments. What's the Word on the Street? and The Word of the Day also return with 25 new words.

The segment "I Love My Hair" went viral in mid-October 2010, getting a large amount of press coverage, for encouraging positive attitudes amongst African-American viewers towards their hair. Earlier in the season, Katy Perry's parody of her song "Hot n' Cold" attracted negative attention, due to controversy over her outfit; it was removed from the broadcast season.


Parody segments this year include "The Elmo Slide" ("The Cha Cha Slide"), "The Closer" and "True Mud" (True Blood).
