Sesame Street Mecha Builders reimagines Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Abby Cadabby as robot heroes-in-training who use their STEM superpowers to solve wacky larger-than-life problems. Animated in a dynamic 3D style, this Sesame Street spinoff helps older preschoolers practice foundational critical thinking skills while laughing along with their Sesame friends. The series introduces children to STEM concepts like simple machines, force, and properties of matter, illustrated with help from the Mechas and their unique powers. Across 26 episodes – each containing two complete 11-minute stories – the friends get into all kinds of silly situations, whether they’re using a wedge to split a giant banana for an ice cream statue or learning how to measure cables for a zipline through the trees. Lively animation — provided by Toronto-based firm Guru Studios – opens up imaginative possibilities like Mecha Cookie’s “Hammer Hand,” Mecha Abby’s stretchy arms, and the Mechas’ ability to go “Mecha Big” and “Mecha Tiny” to solve problems on every scale.
Old friends. New heroes. The Mecha Builders may not get it right the first time, they won't give up until they solve the problem and save the day! The first episode of Sesame Street Mecha Builders is available now on Sesame Street’s YouTube channel; the first five episodes will drop on Cartoonito on Cartoon Network on 5/9, and HBO Max on 5/10, with more coming soon.
