Chamki Visits Sesame Street

Big Bird tells Grover that his pen pal, a friend who he has a lot in common with, is flying to Sesame Street all the way from India. Thinking that Big Bird's pen pal is a bird just like him, Grover, Elmo, Rosita and Cookie Monster build a big bird feeder to help Big Bird's pen pal feel welcome. When Big Bird's friends find out that his pen pal is actually Chamki and not a bird after all, Big Bird explains that friends don't have to look the same or be from the same country to have a lot in common.

series description

SESAME STREET has garnered more than 100 awards, including multiple Emmys, two Peabodys, four Parents' Choice Awards and an Action for Children's Television Special Achievement Award. The series delivers academic and social education that prepares kids for grade school. Since its premiere, the show's base curriculum has been set by academic research on preschoolers. Encore episodes focus on music and art and how these tools can be used to develop the whole child - the cognitive, social, emotional and physical attributes. In addition, "Elmo's World," which looks at the world through the eyes of a three-year-old, continues as a featured segment.
