"As opposed to Svenska Sesam, the Sesam episodes have been re-run on Swedish tv." Is this to say that though Sweden produced Svenska Sesam it is no longer running/not re-ran on Swedish television? --Cantus Rock 07:47, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Sesam has been re-aired a few times during the mid 80's. However Svenska Sesam has not been shown since 1981-82. There might have been a re-run in 1983 but I'am not sure about that.Rytter 09:50, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Thats interesting stuff. What do they have now for children's educational television if not a Sesame Street version?? --Cantus Rock 11:49, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Well for many years the Nordic puplic service stations (DR, SVT, NRK, YLE) have been co-producing their own stuff. The most recent show is called Gnotterne starring 4 fullbody puppets and 3 hand puppets.Rytter 14:07, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Oh cool...did Svenska Sesam just not take with the children of the country or something? (Or maybe my preconceived notion that Sesame Street co-productions always run for seasons on end like Sesame Street here in the US is totally off base...that very well could be...) --Cantus Rock 20:01, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
No idea about that, could be. However my personal guess is that there was only a contract for 30 episodes and that SVT found it to expensive to produce. But I do know for a fact that NRK cancelled the contract for Sesam Stasjon and had to pay a fee to the children workshop to get out of the contract. The reason from what I can understand was that NRK got tired of the show, and the popularity of the show was dropping.Rytter 04:58, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
