New show debuts this week, teaching children where their favourite foods come from.
Tiny Pop is ready to hit the road with Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck, with the new series from Sesame Workshop debuting in the UK this week.
The show is a new way for children to learn where their favourite foods come from. In each of the five minute episodes, Cookie Monster and his pal Gonger receive a video call from a child who orders a favourite dish.
Partway through preparing each recipe in their food truck, Cookie and Gonger realize that they’re missing a key ingredient. They jump behind the wheel and leave Sesame Street to gather the missing ingredient right from the source.
“Sesame Workshop has always approached familiar topics in fresh and creative ways, and we’re excited to continue this tradition with our newest series,” said Ed Wells, svp and head of international media and education at Sesame Workshop.
“We are thrilled to be working with Tiny Pop, one of the UK’s leading kids’ channels, to take kids on fun, informative and laughter-filled trips to places like cocoa plantations, pasta factories, avocado farms and much more, to help kids discover where some of their favourite foods are grown and produced.”
Sarah Muller, vp children’s and youth programming, added: “We’re thrilled to bring the laughter and learning of the Sesame Street brand to Tiny Pop. “Our priority is to deliver the highest quality programmes to our young viewers – encouraging their sense of adventure and allowing their imaginations to soar. Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck is a wonderful addition to our strong line-up.”
Licensing opportunities for Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck and Sesame Street are being handled by UK and Eire agent, Bulldog Licensing.
