A co-production with our friends and partners at Sesame Workshop, Sesame Tree teaches mutual respect and appreciation of difference while having lots of fun!
Sesame Tree is aimed at young children and features strong curriculum and educational content as well as entertaining and engaging storytelling through a mix of traditional Muppet interaction and live action films.
It features our new family of muppets - Potto the purple monster, Hilda the hare, Archie the red squirrel, Claribelle the red bird, Samson & Goliath the bookworms and the Weatherberries who all live inside the Sesame Tree - a magical question tree.
The 14 minute show includes live action mini-documentary films which look at life through the eyes of a 3-6 year old and classic clips from Sesame Street.
Potto is directing a new adventure movie, helped out by his pals in the Sesame Tree. But he creates all sorts of problems when he won't listen to the ideas of his cast and crew.
