Sesame Street (Series) (1973-2002)

Aka: Sesame Park, Canadian Sesame Street, Les amis de Sésame

Sesame Street
Sesame Street was carried on the CBC since 1969. Starting in January 1973, however, the CBC started to replace some segments of the U.S. program with Canadian-produced segments that focused on multiculturalism, learning French, understanding the environment and an awareness of the heritage of our native peoples. In this format, it was referred to as Canadian Sesame Street. The animated Beau Beaver, who shared interesting facts about Canada, was introduced in 1983.

In 1996 the show adopted the title Sesame Park. The CBC cut the show to a half-hour and removed most of the American segments, instead airing mostly Canadian content. Sesame Park was cancelled in 2002.
