Season overview

The 37th season of Sesame Street focuses on getting kids ready for school and the classroom experience. The season featured the debut of a new female Muppet character named Abby Cadabby, who introduces herself in the cold open of the season's first two episodes (4109 and 4110), as a fairy in training who recently moved to Sesame Street. Every other episode begins with a cold open featuring Grover, Elmo and Zoe singing "You never know who you'll meet on Sesame Street!" followed by Gordon announcing who the viewer will meet in today's episode.

The season introduced a new human character to the street - Marco, Gina's new baby. A three-episode storyline (beginning in 4130) followed the adoption of Marco from Guatemala. Gina's adopting of Marco allowed Sesame Street to deal with issues of international adoption and non-traditional families. He appeared in a couple episodes the following two seasons but did not appear again until season 42. As a new baby was introduced to the show this season, the previous Sesame Street children, Miles and Gabi, entered adulthood as they graduated from High School (in 4112).

Episodes in season 37 featured a new segment entitled "This is the Game Today"; and one episode this season showed the return of the Twiddlebugs (in computer-animated form).

New Elmo's World segments included the subjects of Friends, Penguins, Doctors, Building Things, Horses, and Fast & Slow. New installments of "Global Grover" included visits to Germany, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Iceland, and Hawaii.

Starting in this season, the Fix-It Shop turned Mail-It Shop is now the Fix-It Shop once more, with no on-screen reason why.

Parodies

Parody sketches and segments include Scramalot (a Grouch parody of the musical Spamalot), Survivor: Musical Chairs (a parody of the reality show Survivor), Outrageous Makeover: Home Addition (a parody of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), Law and Order: Special Letters Unit (a parody of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and the song "The Breakfast Club" (a parody of the film The Breakfast Club). Several new Dinner Theater sketches include "What We're Having for Dinner" (a parody of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner), "Man of La Muncha" (a parody of Man of La Mancha) and "Omelet, Prince of Dinner" (a parody Hamlet).

Episodes

Episodes 4109 - 4134 (26 episodes)

Notes

  • Starting this season, the U.S. Department of Education no longer provided funding to the show.
  • Episode titles, first given with the show numbers during Season 34, were dropped.
  • Several episode numbers were changed this year, from taping to air. The episodes focusing on Marco's adoption were moved to November in order to coincide with National Adoption Month. The original episode numbers include:
  • 4109 -- Gina adopts a baby
  • 4110 -- Gina brings the baby home
  • 4123 -- Abby Cadabby comes to Sesame Street
  • 4129 -- Abby starts school for the first time
  • During the initial run, the season re-aired old episodes in order to extend the new episodes over a longer period.
  • This was the last season to use the 2002 "blocks" opening sequence and the 1992 animated "dancing city" closing credits.
