The Philippines is an island nation located in Southeast Asia.

The country was home to the short-lived Sesame Street co-production, Sesame! in 1983.

On Episode 3576 of Sesame Street, the tinikling, a Philippine national dance, is performed. In Episode 4120, Global Grover visited the Philippines and brought a playground slide back with him to Sesame Street.

In 2011, the Children's Television Workshop partnered with Filipino singer, Rico Blanco, to launch an education campaign called “Sesame Street Kid Ako" (I am a Sesame Street Kid). As part of the campaign, Blanco released rock versions of the songs Ladybug's Picnic and Lowercase N. Warner Music put up a Sesame Street corner in a public schools for a whole month to encourage laughter and learning at an early age. Walkaround versions of Elmo and Cookie Monster were present to kickstart the event.

In May 2012, Caroll Spinney and Oscar the Grouch were keynote speakers at the Philippine Pediatric Society's annual convention.
