Online ad for the blog

Sesame Family Robinson is an official Sesame Workshop parenting blog on Sesamestreet.org, run by Sesame Street puppeteer Martin P. Robinson and his wife and Sesame Street writer Annie Evans. The blog chronicles their lives since shortly before the birth of their twins, Lyra and Ripley. Evans writes the text while Robinson makes short films for the blog (although he has on occasion posted on the blog).

Besides coverage of everyday, personal family life as well as first-hand behind-the-scenes Sesame event reports, the blog also features several investigative and humorous status reports by Robinson's character, Telly Monster.

The Telly puppet featured in the videos was last used on Sesame Street in 2000.[1]

Nadine Zylstra, Assistant Vice President, Programming, and Digital Media at Sesame Workshop, had approached the couple about chronicling their lives through the blog. She says:

The blog gives you such an insight into Sesame Street -- a real behind-the-scenes look, but in an interesting way because they're parents. So not only are you behind the scenes, but you’re behind the scenes at the Emmys while she's breastfeeding her twins. So it feels special. It feels like a point of view that moms would be interested in. The other thing is that Marty and Annie are enthralling. They offer this unique point of view. They’re quite eccentric. [2]

In late 2010, the blog spilled over to YouTube, as Baby Sports.
