This Sunday, "60 Minutes" will premiere their second-ever feature on Sesame Street. Tune in and watch the "60 Minutes" segment at 7:30 eastern, 6:30 central on CBS.

"Sesame Street" is bringing a new gang of Muppets to the Middle East. The creators of the legendary children's show and the International Rescue Committee have joined forces to address the needs of child refugees in the region. Lesley Stahl traveled to Jordan to see the Arabic-language show as it was being filmed, and to meet Syrian refugee families whose young children are the focus of IRC services.



In 2017, Lesley Stahl visited the street interviewing the cast and crew including Julia, an autistic Muppet.

"60 Minutes" also visited "The Muppet Show" back in 1979 with this classic segment.


A bit of trivia, "60 Minutes" has been on the air since 1968, making it one year older than the pioneering children's television show.

If you saw this anticipated appearance, please like this post and share your thoughts below.
