Season 36 Character Questions. Hi guys, just a reminder that Sesame Street's 36th season starts today on many PBS stations across the country. As always, I'd appreciate any help you (my trusted sources) can provide regarding all the new characters seen throughout the course of the season. As soon as I have some characters to ask about from the various episodes, I'll be sure to post 'em here. Here's lookin' forward to a good season of Sesame Street for #36.
