    Stranger things have happened. Grover being called "Archibaldo" on Plaza Sesamo, for instance. At least Kroovi sounds close enough to Grover.

    Oddly enough on the Current US Season, Cookie Monster and
    Cookie Hood sang a song about what cookies are called in other Languages. Oogie was mentioned for Israel!

    But I do think Naming Grover "little Cabbage" is far weirder than calling him "Archie" (Archabaldo). Of course. Grover is an odd name in and of itself. I've only heard of Grover Cleveland... that's it!

    When was it cancelled? I was under the impression that the program was launched in recent years (1998 if I recall correctly)... and as recently as last year there were stories about the show having to change its name from "Sesame Street" to "Sesame Stories" because the concept of Israeli and Palestinian characters mingling on a "street" where everybody belongs was not possible in the politcal climate.

    Have the powers that be stopped the show from being able to exist in any form?

    Most likely the Latin version of Archibald. I guess that's what Archie is short for.

    Does Sesame Stories have new Muppets ?

    Or does it use the same Muppets as Shara'a Simsim and Rechov Sumsum ?

    Ifso, What are the Muppets names. And can you make pictures of them please?

    there r two new puppets. not very successful as the old ones i believe. there names r: brosh & noah. they r operated by a very talented pupeteers. noah is operated by Gilles Ben-Daviv (famous for Moishe Oofnik). brosh is operated by Avi Yakir ( famous for the old character from the B&W TV era; Kishkashta).

    fortunately i did took some screenshots from from the first chapter and will put it here soon!

    i will try to transalate the artical. it will be a bit of a short cut:

    there will be two new characters: childish noah and pedantic brosh. some of the old characters will go on like cookie monster, grover, bert and arnie.

    the show is made with the help of sesame workshop. the show teaches to good values like respect, no violence and culture.

    the show is also made in Jordan and in the palastinian authority. in every chapter there will be ahort films about kiks in israel, jordan and palastinian authority (Jews and Arabians). there will also be short animation films based on kids stories.

    most of the production team worked also in the erlier version of sesame street.

    today i finally got to see a chapter and iyt was nice but i liked the old characters more (i mise ofnick). next week i am going to where it show is shoot (to see the filmung of another puppets tv series) and i really hope to get a look at the puppets :halo: .

    Re: Grover = Kruvi

    D'var Acher (Another Interpretation): Maybe the name Kruvi is really derived from "K'ruv" = "cherub", with Kruvi meaning "angelic" or "cherubic".

    According to a hebrew SS picture dictionary I have, Super Grover = Kruvi Ahuvi ('beloved cherub??')

    I did a post about a year ago with the Hebrew names of SS characters in that dictionary.
