Sesame Street Season 25 aired from November 22, 1993 to May 20, 1994.

Season Overview

Starting this season, Sesame Street expands their street to Around the Corner. Sonia Manzano said about this whole new block of locations, "By expanding the street and going around the corner, we will have other places to hang out beyond the stoop of 123 Sesame Street, and we will be able to explore family issues which we think are so important to kids today." This season also introduces new human characters and (mostly female) Muppet characters. Michael Loman: "We've been criticized in the past for not having enough female puppets on the show. And I think that's an accurate criticism. And this specifically seeks to address that." [1]

Notes

  • Episodes 3136-3200 and 3238 were shown as a part of Noggin's 123 Sesame Street package from 1999 until 2003.
  • This was also Jon Stone's final season as primary director for the series. After the season finale, Stone left the show due to health problems relating to Lou Gehrig's disease. Stone passed away in 1997.
  • Starting with this season, the colors on the set (Such as Big Bird's doors or the checkers on Hooper's Store) are much more vibrant and bright, giving the set a more child-friendly atmosphere.
  • Due to the around the corner strech of the set, Big Bird can now get out of his nest through the blue door in the front or the red door on the side.
  • This was the first season taped at Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, New York.
  • This is Zoe's first season on Sesame Street.
  • Starting with this season, the closing credit sequence is also shown during the season premieres.
