Debuting on HBO Max on Thursday, August 5, fans of all ages will learn how Tango made her way to Sesame Street in a new 30-minute special Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy. A sneak peek at the 2D-animated adoption adventure was released today, in which Elmo and Grover come up with the perfect name for their newest friend.
Synopsis: Elmo and Grover discover a sweet, stray puppy – whom they quickly name Tango – and embark on an adventure throughout the neighborhood with Sesame Street friends Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, and Oscar the Grouch. Together, they search for the local pet adoption fair in the hopes of finding her a “forever home.”
To welcome Tango to the neighborhood, Sesame Workshop is rolling out brand-new and exclusive digital content featuring Elmo, Tango and other furry friends on the Sesame Street YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter platforms. Families can also visit Sesame Workshop’s Furry Friends Forever webpage for games and printable activities.
Tango will join Sesame Street‘s 52nd Season as both an animated character and a live-action Sesame Street Muppet, debuting this fall on HBO Max and on PBS in 2022.
