Sesame Street's 37th season delayed until August 14

New season to focus on social and emotional growth

It isn't open "Sesame" just yet. The word on the street is that "Sesame Street" will debut its 37th season later than usual.

Last year, the PBS children's show opened in April but in-house matters have delayed production, spokeswoman Ellen Lewis said, so toddlers will have to subsist on more reruns than usual.

A new batch of 26 episodes begins taping sometime this spring and is scheduled to start airing Aug. 14.

"Sesame Street" is taking a detour this time around. It will emphasize social and emotional growth, "not so much ABCs and 123s," Lewis said. That means toddlers can count on learning more about dealing with separation and sharing, too.

While not revealing any profound character changes - such as Cookie Monster eating healthier in season 37 - Lewis said the show will continue to shape with the times. Gina the veterinarian (played by Alison Bartlett) will adopt a baby from Guatemala. And kids can look for a new girl Muppet to make a bow.

The landmark series has won 101 Emmys and has been nominated for 13 more.
