International Crossover Merchandise

  • In the 1970s and 1980s, for budgetary reasons, a few of the co-productions used the same merchandise. Thus all the comics for Sesamstraat magazine and Sesamstrasse magazine were the same, featuring characters from both shows interacting, but written in the countries' respective languages. It was never explained to the magazines' readers where the foreign characters came from, nor why they never appeared on the respective shows.
  • The same situation applied to the board game Promenade Rue Sesame, sold in both France and Germany and featuring figures from 1, Rue Sésame and Sesamstrasse.
  • Often, an international crossover is when an American Muppet becomes a cast member of the show. Examples of this are Elmo and Grover in Galli Galli Sim Sim, Elmo on Sesamgade, Ernie and Bert on Sesamstrasse, Grover on Rechov Sumsum, and Big Bird on The Adventures of Kami and Big Bird.
