There is no “canadian” version of Sesame Street or it’s spin-offs. They are the same for Canada (with the same actors) as they are for the U.S.

LOL
Sorry. The fact that you had to say that just seemed really funny to me! grin

(I had this great mental image of a ‘Canadian Version’. LOL )

Yes, but Sesame Park was a different show with different characters. They didn’t re-dub over the voices of the usual Sesame Street characters to give them Canadian acccents or anything dumb like that. They just spliced in some Canadian content to replace the Spanish segments.

I only know this because I did some work for CTW awhile back, I have yet to see an actual episode of Sesame Park since I’ve moved to Canada. Do they still play it? My daughter watches Sesame Street, Elmo’s World, Play With Me Sesame, and Global Grover, but they actually include the Spanish and have no Canadian specific characters at all.

Except maybe Aloysius Snuffleupagus. I have a suspicion he’s secretly Canadian.

I don’t think CBC shows Sesame Street (or Park) anymore. If they do, it’s probally on really, really early in the morning.

It baffles me how our minds are so conditioned by the beeping. It is as if I actually hear the words that aren’t there!
