About Elmo's World

        Elmo s World one of the most popular segments Sesame Street. It begins in 1998 in Season 30 Elmo’s World runs consistently from Season 30 to Season 37. It continues less regularly from Season 37 to Season 42. It runs almost 15 minutes at the end part of the episode.

        As it can be seen the name, Elmo is the star of it. Apart from Elmo, Dorothy that is Elmo’s pet gold fish, and Mr Noddle who is silly friend of him, are also stars of Elmo’s World.

        Elmo’s World has simple format including seventeen parts. Elmo's World starts with Guess what Elmo's thinking about today. As we see, in this part the theme of episode is presented by Elmo.

        Dorothy has a question is next part Elmo says us Dorothy’s question. The third part is The Noodle Family, Mr Noddle arrives and tries to answer Dorothy’s question, but all the time he fails.

        Kids and Baby is another part. Elmo Has a Question for You, in this part Elmo needs audiencers help. And then it is time for Home Video/Video E-mail, they are mainly related to the topic or theme of episode.

        Ouiz time plays a trivial role on the Elmo’s World, in this part Elmo asks different type of question to reach main theme. It is quite interesting and joyful part. Film Insert, TV, Expert Interview and Tickle Me Land are are the ongoing middle sections.

        Closing song section one of the most crowded and rhytmic part of episode, all guests and Elmo come to the stage and sing topic World with (generally) tune of Jingle Bells. And then we nearly reach the end, Guess what Elmo's wondering about today, Look it up, Game, The Noodle Family and Closing Song are the last sections of The Elmo’s World.

Sesame Street Elmo The Musical 2

Elmo The Musical

        Elmo: The Musical is another popular segment after Elmo’s World in the Sesame Street. It is first appeared in Season 43, 2009. We can see it in every episode from Episode 43 to Episode 46, it alternates with Elmo's World.

        In the beginning part of the Musical, Elmo teaches math skills, every eleven minute musical Elmo starring in the stage show of his imagination, with his pal Velvet. Elmo wonders animated scenery and imitates as if he is traveling the World.

        During this travel, he dreams his play friends like a villainous table tennis playing octopus or one about-to-be married penguin in a full of bridal regalia. In one episode Elmo searches for that “really big dip” in “Guacamole the Musical or the other one he is full of an astronout costumes and delivers pizza in “Pizza the Musical.” In  “Sea Captain the Musical” Elmo hunts Moby Pinkand.

        And There are a lot of different themes and we can see Elmo in a different shapes, costumes or characteristics, but all have the same features that Elmo who is the star of the Elmo: The Musical.  They are very funny parts of Sesame Street Episodes.

What is Elmo known for?

        Elmo is one of the most famous Sesame Street character. He a small red monster. He is three and half years old. He is known for his strange and at the same time funny laugh and voice.

Why Elmo is red?

        Elmo is mainly related to the children especially young audiencers at least three years old. Red is quite pretty colour many of us. But at the same time Red is the first color to actually solidify in brain,  and which makes red is the first colour realised, bright and clear for children.

        Red is an attractive colour, when we see a red coloured something on the TV it takes our intrest, as it is thought for children a red small muppet take their attention too much, that’s way Elmo is red.

Why does Elmo speak bad English? ( Why does Elmo speak with incorrect grammar / why does not Elmo speak proper English?)

        Elmo speaks like the preschool kids viewer.  That is a nice experience for these. Because Elmo talks like they talk. Elmo uses the third person to express to himself that represents the three years old self-centered approach to reality.

        He has an inability to pronounce certain consonants ,almost all consonant blends refers difficulties children face as they try to master speech. To sum up, Elmo represents his age children some of whom has some inability to speak, and they provide a bond between children and Elmo.

Elmo’s Pet Goldfish

        Elmo has a pet. It is a goldfish, its name is Dorothy. She is six years old, first appeared in Elmo’s World, 1998. She is one of Elmo’s best friends, Elmo likes his pet so much.

        Although she is in the Sesame Street, Dorothy is not a muppet, she is a real and live fish. Dorothy is female, because in the book and toys, she is portrayed with big eyelashes that makes her gender female.

        Dorothy is not Elmo’s first goldfish. Elmo had a fish, Barkley. Apart from this, he had one more fish, its name is Bubbles. Miles-Telly was Elmo’s another fish after these two fish. But now Elmo has only a pet goldfish, that is Dorothy, he likes him so much and they are very good friends.
