When we say "PLAY WITH ME", you say "SESAME!"

Play With Me Sesame is a Lighter and Softer Spin-Off series based on Sesame Street. It was developed for Noggin, a channel co-owned by Sesame Workshop and Nickelodeon. Fittingly, the drawings on the show's backdrops are the same ones from Noggin's "Moose and Zee" interstitials.note  Play with Me featured classic Sesame characters with their own segments: Ernie playing Ernie Says, computer games with Bert, Prairie Dawn's Art Class, and Move and Groove with Grover. As Grover, Prairie Dawn, Bert and Ernie are the hosts of the show, other Sesame Street characters are Demoted to Extra.


Show format:

  • Game of Ernie Says
  • Classic Sesame Street moment
  • When we say Play with Me, you say Sesame! bumper
  • Classic Sesame Street moment
  • Computer games with Bert (Pigeon Pattern, Perfect Pair, Oatmeal Art), or sometimes Ernie (for Ducks in a row)
  • The Play with Art Show with Prairie Dawn
  • Classic Sesame Street moment
  • Kids' home-recorded video
  • Classic Sesame Street moment
  • Move and Groove with Grover
  • Closing theme


This show provides the example of:

  • Clip Show: As mentioned above, the show features classic Sesame Street moments.
  • Every Episode Ending: The hosts do a goodbye version whatever song is used in Grover's Move and Groove segment, which results in them laughing.
  • Rewritten Pop Version: The show's opening theme song is a rewritten version of Somebody Come and Play.

How well does it match the trope?
