Sesame Street’s The Monster at the End of this Story launches this Saturday on ABC Kids.
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organisation behind half a century of award- winning children’s television, will launch its first-ever animated Sesame Street special “The Monster at the End of This Story” on Saturday 21st November at 9.30am on ABC Kids, as well as ABC iview and ABC Kids app – and its star, Grover, is begging fans not to watch!
A reimagining of Sesame Street’s all-time best-selling picture book “The Monster at the End of This Book,” the special follows Grover’s reluctant journey to the end of the story, where, based on the title, he believes a monster awaits. Drawn in the unmistakable style of the book first published in 1971, the special adds new sequences, songs and surprises. It introduces other familiar Sesame Street characters, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and Rosita, to the tale.
“After nearly 50 years, the lesson in ‘The Monster at the End of This Book’ remains timeless. It‘s okay to feel afraid, but also important to have courage and keep moving forward in spite of those fears,” said Kay Wilson Stallings, Sesame Workshop’s Executive Vice President of Creative and Production.
“The Monster at the End of This Story” is the official special of Sesame Street’s 51st season, launching in 2021.
Sesame Street content continues to be available via ABC Kids each weekday morning at 9.30am. The episodes are also available any time on ABC iview and the ABC Kids app.
