    Episode 4815 - Chamki Visits Sesame Street
    HBO Premiere: Saturday February 24, 2018

    Big Bird is getting ready for a visit from Chamki, his pen pal from India. Grover, Elmo, Rosita and Cookie Monster build a giant bird feeder to help her feel comfortable on Sesame Street. When she gets there, the gang finds out that even though she and Big Bird have a lot in common, she's not a bird at all!

    This episode features an all-new street story, "Be a Good Friend" with Gwen Stefani, "Quiero Ser Tu Amigo" with Romeo Santos and Elmo's World ("Kindness").

    This is one of the better street stories so far this season: it didn't feel rushed, nor did it feel like they tried cramming too much story into too little time.

    I liked that Elmo, Rosita, Grover, Cookie, and Abby jumped to conclusions that Chamki would be a bird because they figured a pen pal of Big Bird's would be a bird (that, and he said she'd be flying in, without saying on a plane). Chamki's overall manipulation and lip syncing reminded me a lot of Brian Meehl's - did anyone else pick up on this? But other than that, I loved how they all got together for dancing at the end, with them all dressed up in traditional Indian clothing.

    Also loved Grover's little bit about being friends with a crayon he named Steve - that's just so Grover. That and their attempts to build a large birdhouse that hardly looked like a birdhouse at all (amusing that Chamkin thought it looked like some kind of space ship).

    Really well-executed story, I really enjoyed it. One of the best so far this season.

    The street story was very good. Grover and Cookie got some funny lines, the song at the end of the street story was cool. Can't really say anything else since the rest was repeated sketches.

    Seems there's been quite a few episodes in recent years about characters meeting new friends. That would make a good concept for a DVD release - it could include this episode plus the introductions of Julia and Rudy, maybe also the introductions of Chris and Leela.

    Then again, this season brought us two episodes in a row starring characters from the international versions of the show, maybe a DVD of episodes or segments with guest appearances from international characters could be done.
