First Trailer for 'Sesame Street' on HBO Released

Sesame Street is moving to HBO for the next few seasons starting in January and the first trailer is now out.

This has caused some consternation among viewers who feel that turning Sesame Street into a premium cable property undermines the whole idea of educational children's programming on free TV.

The trailer features favorites like Ernie and Bert, Telly, Grover, Elmo, Cookie Monster, the Count, Oscar the Grouch, and Big Bird, as well as a Star Wars parody. Sesame Street debuted in 1969 and has aired on PBS for the past 45 years.

Back in August, The New York Times told us how to get, how to get to Sesame Street: Via HBO. And though the new episodes will air exclusively on HBO for nine months, they'll eventually air on PBS, too, as well as on both channel's streaming platforms. There's also a sneak preview of some of the famous guests stopping through 123 Sesame Street.

HBO secured the Sesame Street deal over the summer, and will be delivering twice as much new Sesame content per season.

Along with the regulars, lots of celebs were featured in the trailer including Gwen Stefani, Usher, Pharrell Williams, and lots of others. Sesame Street's move to HBO has to do with one thing: money.
