Sesame Street's 43rd season is set to debut on September 24, 2012.[1] A number of street stories for this season were filmed during the season 42 production period.[2] Inserts for the season were filmed between January and April 2012.[2] Filming for new Word on the Street and other tune-in segments took place in various New York locals in late May.[3] One new tune-in segment will focus on the "people in your neighborhood."

Season overview

Season 43 continues Sesame Workshop's STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), expanding it to STEAM (adding Art). "What's the Word on the Street?" returns for its 6th season, featuring 22 new words (4 of which are re-used from season 39 and season 41).

Replacing the long-running "Elmo's World" segment is a brand-new segment, "Elmo the Musical." The 11 minute segment features Elmo imagining himself in many musical adventures that teach math skills, such as counting and geometry. 10 segments have been produced. Also appearing are new installments of Abby's Flying Fairy School and "Super Grover 2.0."


New parody segments this season include The Voice, "Birdwalk Empire" (spoofing Boardwalk Empire), "Upside Down Abbey" (spoofing Downton Abbey) and "Five By," a spoof of Train's "Drive By."
