Plaza Sésamo (known simply as Sésamo since 2016) is the Latin American co-production of Sesame Street. Premiering in November 1972 and co-produced with Televisa, the series initially featured a cast which was comprised chiefly of Mexican performers, but also included Panamanians and Argentines and featured "neutral Spanish".

As the years progressed, however, the series more explicitly reflected Mexico, where the show is shot. In addition to airing in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America, the series debuted on PBS in 1995, broadcast primarily in Southwest markets on Saturday mornings (as such, it is the only Sesame Street co-production that can be widely seen in the United States).

The show's main original Muppet characters include Abelardo Montoya, a Big Bird-like parrot (Word of God says that Abelardo is actually supposed to be Big Bird's cousin), Pancho, a blue Grouch-like character (despite not necessarily acting like any other Grouch), and Lola, an adventurous pink female Anything Muppet. Muppet characters from the American show appear in dubbed inserts, and Abelardo even visited Big Bird on Sesame Street in the US in an episode that aired on Cinco de Mayo.
