Het Mooiste van Sesamstraat (The Most Beautiful Thing from Sesame Street) was a Sesamstraat Theater show which premiered in 2010. It was the third live show based on Sesamstraat, and the first to feature Sesamstraat characters Pino and Tommie. The show was specially written and performed in the Netherlands to celebrate Sesamstraat's 35th anniversary. It ran from September 2010 until January 2011. This project didn't go through the production team of the original Sesamstraat show. As a result, the original voice actors chose not to participate, and new sound-alike voices were used.
When Doedoe, a traveler, decides to pay a visit to Sesamstraat, the gang wants her to stay. They think if they can show her how beautiful Sesamstraat is, she never wants to leave again. But what is the most beautiful thing they have?
Everyone goes on a search for that answer. Pino thinks all the beautiful things have to be labeled. Ernie wants Doedoe to like Rubber Duckie as much as he does. Elmo thinks the moon is the most beautiful thing. And Bert has some problems with the whole concept. Finally, Tommie figures it out... but will it convince her to stay?
The songs from the show were released as a CD, and sold at the show.
