Sesame Street's Elmo To Host 'Virtual Play Date' For Kids During Pandemic

Even Elmo is on Zoom now!

On April 14th, Elmo is inviting viewers to join him for Sesame Street: Elmo’s Playdate, which is a half-hour special featuring celebs like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anne Hathaway and Tracee Ellis Ross as part of Sesame Street's new Caring for Each Other initiative.

Kids can enjoy the “virtual play date” special which follows Elmo and his friends as they find new ways to learn together online and discover fun things to do at home with their families. They will also celebrate today’s heroes like EMTs and doctors.

The special is taped to look like a video conference, which is a familiar sight to most kids and their parents these days. They’ll also sing songs, take dance breaks, and play games.

Elmo’s Playdate will air Tuesday, April 14th at 7 p.m. ET, and will be available on all WarnerMedia Networks: HBO, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, TBS, TNT, truTV and PBS KIDS.
