Elmo Adopts A Puppy On Sesame Street!

And this is all the cuteness we can handle!

Elmo has a new fur-ever friend named Tango!


Tango will be introduced officially in “Furry Friends Forever: Elmo Gets a Puppy,” a 30-minute special debuting August 5 on HBO Max.

According to a Sesame Street press release, this was a character that took two years to develop!


Tango “will show preschoolers how to meet a new animal, gently play with and brush a pet, teach new tricks, give baths, and, most especially, show love and affection for their furry friends.”


Although this project started pre-pandemic, it’s timely as many families have welcomed a new pet into their homes during the pandemic.
