Sesame Street's loveable red and furry monster, Elmo, is set to make a set of very special appearances on Sprout's live morning program, "The Sunny Side Up Show" this holiday season. Elmo will appear on the live morning program on Tuesday, December 15, 2009. Elmo will join host Sean and his puppet friend Chica the Chicken to take calls from Sprout viewers, read birthday cards, and send out holiday wishes to families across the country.
Elmo is is not the first "Sesame Street" star to appear on "The Sunny Side Up Show", Big Bird appeared as a co-host on the program in fall 2007, Prairie Dawn made a special Valentine's Day appearance last year, Oscar the Groch stopped by in 2008 for an Earth Day visit, and Grover helped ring in 2009 with special New Year's Eve and New Years Day appearaces. "The Sunny Side Up Show" airs weekdays on the PBS KIDS Sprout television network from 9:00am to 12:00pm ET (check listings for details). So if you get Sprout on your TV, and if you're a Elmo fan, then you'll want to make sure you tune in for a special Muppet appearance.
