Season Overview

The curriculum for Season 24 is focusing on Latino culture. "There will also be more emphasis on the Spanish language," says Ms. Valeria Lovelace, since her research showed that many children have negative feelings about Spanish. For example, the show will feature songs with abierto and cerrado, the Spanish words for open and close. Preschoolers will learn simple words and phrases that will help them make friends with Spanish speakers. The show will also feature Latino guest stars.[1]

A new segment for this season, "Wish You Were Here," will have Big Bird visit different parts of the United States and learn about people of different ethnicities and participated in their cultural activities or pastimes. With the focus on Latino culture, Big Bird will "see mask-making in Spanish Harlem, children playing games in Spanish in Union City, N.J., Spanish murals in Los Angeles and children counting in Spanish in El Salvador. Big Bird will conduct a children's mariachi band, learn traditional Cuban songs and eat a birdseed burrito while he visits his friend, Diego, in Arizona."[1]

Notes

  • Starting with this season, the opening sequence has changed from the standard footage of kids playing, to an upbeat, colorful sequence with a calypso version of the theme, and more Muppets in it. A similar closing credits sequence also introduced this season would continue to be used until 2007, even long after the calypso opening had been retired. Monsterpiece Theater and The Adventures of Super Grover also received new title sequences.
  • Starting this season, an instrumental riff from this season's closing sequence plays during the funding credits until 1995.
  • This is the first season to broadcast in stereo. [citation needed]
