Delight in the old-timey wonder of Sesame Street’s holiday special

The snow tumbles down on Muppets in top hats as a mustachioed Cookie Monster offers a Santa’d Jim Gaffigan a chocolate chip cookie. This is the scene on set as Sesame Street shoots its first holiday special in 10 years.

“Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas” is a Dickensian tale told through a furry lens of children’s television. Much of the special takes place in an old-timey Sesame Street populated by the ancestors of the street’s familiar, fuzzy faces.
