The structure of the show is quite short – only 7 minutes per episode. It starts with a prosocial theme. In this episode, it’s about teamwork. There is a quick establishing shot of the environment (the beach), and we are introduced to the 3 characters: Miffy, Melanie, and Miffy’s mom. Early on, we hear the the male narrator’s voice, which is an interesting use of breaking the fourth wall.
What makes television unique in learning? One of the greatest strengths Sesame Street has to offer are its prosocial segments that teach about empathy and kindness, which are fundamental skills aimed to help children develop emotional wellbeing with themselves and others.
