Sesame Street is still going strong after all these years. Everyone has grown up learning about themselves, the alphabet, counting, etc., with this PBS series, and they don’t seem ready to stop teaching kids anytime soon, premiering their new season on September 27.
You don’t have to wait until then, though, to check out the fun kids will be having this season. PBS has made available a special clip on YouTube featuring a sneak peak of Will.i.am singing “What I Am” with the Muppets. It’s definitely a catchy song that could have both parents and kids singing along.
The Black Eyed Peas’ singer will make his appearance on Sesame Street on September 28 where he’ll be singing this new song. The episode, entitled “The Happy Scientists,” will also feature comedian Wanda Sykes for even more fun. The season is promising to bring out other big named stars such as Amy Poehler, Jude Law, Jennifer Garner, Katy Perry, Jason Bateman, Reggie Bush, Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell of Modern Family, Sherri Shepherd, and many more.
According to a press release, Season 41 of Sesame Street will feature the second part of the two-year curriculum meant to emphasize science education. It will encourage kids to as questions and get excited about how the world works. Grover will be featured in a new segment, “Super Grover 2.0,” as he comes across both problems and solutions for our planet. Also included will be three new films with NASA. It’s all designed to play up to kids’ natural inquisitiveness.
It’s the place for preschoolers to be this season, and after seeing the below video, it seems like it’s not so bad of a place for adults either.
