Cookie Monster getting a food truck in new ‘Sesame Street’ season

The next season of “Sesame Street” begins Nov. 11 on HBO, followed by a spring debut on PBS. What’s new for the season? Definitely more kindness episodes, more episodes talking about differences and recognizing that people can be different because of race, ethnicity, economics, abilities and more. Last season, “Sesame Street” introduced Julia, a muppet with autism.

New this season, Cookie Monster is getting his own food truck (How very Austin of him!). In his food truck, he’ll head to find where ingredients come from. (Yes, eat local!)  For example, in the opening episode, he needs apples, so he heads to an apple orchard. Throughout the season he’ll investigate where cranberries, avocados, tortillas, pineapples, maple syrup, pasta and milk come from.

We look forward to finding out ourselves.
