Question About Sesamstraat

    I read at Muppet Wiki and at IMDb that for the first season of the Dutch co-production Sesamstraat, their street was shot on location in a half Dutch/half Belgian town since the show was originally a Dutch/Belgian co-production; then in the second season, a realistic-looking Dutch street was built inside a sound stage, before taking on the familiar abstract-look it had before the set was changed to look like the inside of a toybox last year.

    However, I read quite a while ago at the official Sesamstraat - NPS site that in the beginning, there was no street/straat at all so they had to super-impose the characters in front of still shots of what served as the street via green-screen or blue-screen, or whatever before they built the abstract-looking set.

    I'm not sure which to believe: on the one note, I'm sure everything at Muppet Wiki is as accurate as possible, from what I've seen as far as early Sesamstraat is concerned, it seems evident that everyone was super-imposed in front of a street via green or blue screen.

    Which is true?

    I can't really answer your question:o , but what if Sesame Street devoloped an "abstract street format ?" I wonder how Sesamstraat fans reacted to that. Hmmmmm, this sounds familiar(AtC).

    P.S. Does anyone have any pics of the "new street?"

    Says here it was shot on location north of Amsterdam.

    Okay, so now here's a new question that just popped into my head: what did they do with all the old sets?

    I kind of miss the old days when the set was somewhat abstract, but at least looked like an actual little street (straat).
