Murray ventures out to find the word on the street.

What's the Word on the Street? has been a regular feature on Sesame Street since its 38th season.

Murray Monster hosts this segment which precedes the corporate sponsor spots before each episode. Each segment begins with a shot of him saying, "Hi, I'm Murray from Sesame Street, and I'm looking for... the Word on the Street!" He then speaks with folks about what today's word means and usually instructs the audience to "keep listening for the word today on Sesame Street!" The word is later featured in the "street scenes" and highlighted again as the Word of the Day.

Behind the scenes

Chris Lange served as creative director and art director for the segments, Joey Mazzarino as the writer, Jolene Lew as producer, with music composed by Richard W. Meyer of Modern Music, and sound design by Dale Goulett of Wow & Flutter.[1]

Many of the segments were filmed in Brooklyn, New York City.[2]

Carly Tamer, a 6-year-old, was one of the kids in the segments; both the Sesame segment and Team Umizoomi (created by the creators of Blue's Clues) where Tamer voiced a character, have the same sound crew.[3]
