PAJARO GRANDE (otherwise known as Big Bird in English) will be taking flight on August 1, as Sesame Street and Univision today announced "Sesame Amigos," Sesame Street's first-ever Spanish language show developed for a U.S. audience. Produced by Sesame Workshop (the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street), the show will include 26 new episodes and include character favorites like Elmo and Cookie Monster.
“We are thrilled to be debuting our first season of Sesame Amigos with our partners at Univision,” said Steve Youngwood, Chief Operating Officer of Sesame Workshop, in a Sesame press release. “Sesame Amigos will further our mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder by reaching new Hispanic audiences with our funny, furry content and characters in ways that reflect their language and culture.”
