Sesamstraat

Airing continuously since 1976, Sesamstraat, the Dutch version of Sesame Street, is one of the longest-running children’s shows in the Netherlands and continues to reach millions of children every day. With the help of lovable Elmo and local characters like Pino, Purk, Tommie, and Ienie Mienie, Sesamstraat has taught generations of Dutch preschoolers about letters and numbers while helping them form important social and emotional skills. Segments address issues of local importance like socio-emotional development, multiculturalism, and art appreciation.
