Sesame Workshop’s brand-new series Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck is making its debut on Tiny Pop in the U.K. next week.
In Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck’s five-minute episodes, the titular Sesame Street character and his pal Gonger take video calls from children requesting their favorite dish. When Cookie Monster and Gonger realize they’re missing an ingredient in the midst of preparing a recipe, they journey away from Sesame Street to gather it from the source.
Bulldog Licensing oversees licensing opportunities for Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck and Sesame Street.
“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, the senior VP and head of international media and education at Sesame Workshop. “We are thrilled to be working with Tiny Pop, one of the U.K.’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 favorite foods are grown and produced.”
Sarah Muller, VP of the U.K. children’s and youth portfolio at Sony Pictures Television Networks (SPTN), 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 programs 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 lineup.”
