For children who had to flee Ukraine with their parents, the ARD media center now also has children’s television in their own language.
“Sesame Street” is now also available in Ukrainian. Spots with Ernie and Bert and other popular characters from the children’s television series are now available in the ARD Mediathek and on KiKA.de, the Norddeutsche Rundfunk (NDR) announced on Thursday in Hamburg.
You can see spots from the series “Ernie and Bert in the Land of Dreams”. Elmo will also be there with clips from the “Elmo’s World” series and Graf Zahl, who will present the “Number of the Day”. The German edition of “Sesame Street” celebrates its 50th anniversary in January 2023.
According to the NDR, the short films supplement the range of public broadcasters, which was created especially for children from Ukraine who had fled the war. In the Ukrainian language, for example, there are also laughter and factual stories from the “Show with the Mouse” and the “logo!” children’s news.
