    why did play with me sesame fail? Why did the show not last very long?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and theorize that Sesame Workshop selling off their part ownership of Noggin to Viacom played a major factor in it.

    That makes sense. But why couldn't have sesame workshop continue the show on pbs instead of noggin ?

    I mean, there wasn't really any reason for the show to exist other than to give Nogin a show with name recognition.

    Yeah I agree. I wish sesame could find a way to make a really good spin off show.

    Give Elmo a spin off, tbh. That way his segments which, quite frankly feel out of place in the main show anyway, don't take up time on SST.

    Um, PWMS was an innocuous little show on a preschool cable channel. It had no lofty goals like the regular Sesame. It strove to be nothing more than a half-hour of engaging content, that's it. It didn't "fail" because it only had three seasons. It was barely a thing to even think to consider a failure.

    I think it was basically a cheap way to have puppeteers and such do a Sesame spin off without doing much effort.

    Yeah. I wish SW would do a proper spinoff for sesame. Maybe about Murrary? (Just Kidding:laugh::batty:)
