The ABC is Australia's government-funded national television network, which has broadcast Sesame Street more or less continually since 1971 twice-daily in a weekday timeslot at 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM. The ABC also periodically broadcasts Elmo's World, Global Grover and Play With Me Sesame, and has exclusive Australian broadcast rights for most Sesame Workshop productions, excluding the Australian version of Open Sesame.
As well as "Sesame Street" the ABC has also screened "The Secret Life of Toys", "The Hoobs", "Bear in the Big Blue House" and "Jim Henson Presents the World of Puppetry", as well as the movie "Labyrinth". Many of the programmes produced by Sesame Workshop are aired on the sister channel of ABC, ABC2; much in the same style as BBC1, BBC2 etc.
