Sesame Street's 43rd season debuted on September 24, 2012.[1] The first half of street stories (as well as a number of inserts) were filmed during the season 42 production period, with the second half being filmed during the season 44 period (started on September 20, 2012).[2] "Elmo the Musical" segments and the spoofs for the season were filmed between January and April 2012.[2] Filming for new Word on the Street and other tune-in segments took place in various New York locals in late May.[3]

Season overviewEdit

Season 43 continues Sesame Workshop's STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), expanding it to STEAM (adding Art). The season also deals with self-regulation, promoting dealing with feelings, following directions, staying on task, and self-control. "What's the Word on the Street?" returns for its 6th season, featuring 22 new words (4 of which are re-used from season 39 and season 41).

Replacing the long-running "Elmo's World" segment is a brand-new segment, "Elmo the Musical." The 11 minute segment features Elmo imagining himself in many musical adventures that teach math skills, such as counting and geometry. 10 segments have been produced. Also appearing are new installments of Abby's Flying Fairy School and "Super Grover 2.0."

Also introduced is a new recurring tune-in segment, "The People in Your Neighborhood," where Murray and Ovejita meet people with very unique careers (including a sand painter, a Bollywood choreographer and a kinetic artist). Three of the segments were filmed at and feature performers from Lincoln Center[4].

ParodiesEdit

New parody segments this season include The Voice, "Birdwalk Empire" (spoofing Boardwalk Empire), "Upside Down Abbey" (spoofing Downton Abbey) and "Five By," a spoof of Train's "Drive By."

EpisodesEdit

27 Episodes (4301-4327)

NotesEdit

  • During this season, a fictional sponsor tag is featured at the end of each episode (including repeats).
  • This was the first season in which Susan, Gabi and Luis did not appear in any of the new street stories.
  • This is the first season to produce less than 26 new street stories. Various repeats assist in filling up the basic 26-episode season.
  • This is Desiree Casado's final season as a cast member.
