Season overview

Season 43 continues Sesame Workshop's STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), expanding it to STEAM (adding Art). "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). The season also deals with self-regulation, promoting dealing with feelings, following directions, staying on task, and self-control.

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."


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."


26 Episodes (4301-4326)


  • The end of the episodes now feature a fake sponsor segment, culling stock footage from various Sesame Street films and animations.
