Season Overview

This season will "attempt to familiarize children with hospitals and make them less threatening through the situation." In episode 1996, Luis breaks his arm and has to go the emergency room. Computers will continue this season to "encourage the development of creative writing skills with the keyboard." Norman Stiles said, "As a result of working with computers, we know now that kids can create writing before their motor skills are developed."[1]

Sesame Street will also be getting into music videos such as one video will be called New Moosic, featuring How Now Brown and the Moo Wave. "We don't want older brothers and sisters to come in the room, say that's a baby show and turn it off," said Dulcy Singer.[1]
