Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck to launch on Tiny Pop this week

Published on: December 3rd, 2018

Brand new show to offer a dynamic new way for kids to learn where their favorite foods come from.

In each five-minute episode of Cookie Monsters Foodie Truck, Cookie Monster and his pal Gonger receive a video call from a child who orders a favourite dish. Partway through preparing each recipe in their fully-loaded food truck, Cookie and Gonger realise 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, senior vice president and head of international media and education, Sesame Workshop, commented: “Sesame Workshop has 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, added: “We’re thrilled to bring the laughter and learning of the Sesame Street brand to Tiny Pop. Our priority is to deliver the highest quality programmes 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.”
