Stars Come Out For Sesame Street's 40th Season

Since its debut in 1969, celebrities have been an integral part of Sesame Street. Famous faces often drop by Sesame Street to help entertain, educate and engage audiences of all ages. The show is now entering its 40th season, set to debut on PBS in November 2009, and the list of stars planning to stop by the street just continues to grow. The upcoming season will feature appearances by Adam Sandler ("Bedtime Stories"), Jimmy Fallon ("Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"), Ricky Gervais ("Extra"), Jason Mraz (musician), Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock"), and many others. I will be sure to keep you updated with details on this exciting landmark season as more information become available.

Wooohoo. A Mupdate. I hate slow news weeks, but what can you do? I'd like to hear more about this weird Little Zoe for the new season.

I know why Zoe was made smaller. Fran Brill told me when I visited the set in December. When they were filming Abby in Wonderland, Zoe played a small character, so they made a smaller version of the puppet. They liked the way it looked and kept it. When I was there, it was only the second day Fran was using the new puppet, and she was still getting used to it.

Did you notice Kermit and Pepe made an appearance in episode 1 of MTV's How's Your News?
