In each five-minute episode, Cookie Monster and his hilarious pal Gonger receive a video call from a child who orders a favorite dish. Partway through preparing each recipe in their fully-loaded food truck, Cookie and Gonger realize that they’re missing a key ingredient. They jump behind the wheel and leave Sesame Street to gather the missing ingredient right from the source.
Ed Wells, SVP and Head of International Media and Education, Sesame Workshop, explained: ‘We have always approached familiar topics in fresh and creative ways, and we’re excited to continue this tradition with our newest series. We are thrilled to be working with Tiny Pop, one of the UK’s leading kids’ channels, to take kids on fun, informative and laughter-filled trips to places like cocoa plantations, pasta factories, avocado farms and much more, to help kids discover where some of their favorite foods are grown and produced’.
Sarah Muller, VP – Children’s & Youth Programming, Tiny Pop, added: ‘Our priority is to deliver the highest quality programs to our young viewers—encouraging their sense of adventure and allowing their imaginations to soar. Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck is a wonderful addition to our strong line-up’.
Licensing opportunities for Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck and Sesame Street are overseen by Bulldog Licensing, who were named Sesame Workshop’s agent for the UK and Eire in July.
