Elmo is hosting a playdate and everyone is invited. The half hour special has been created to help comfort kids while dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
During the ‘Playdate,’ Elmo will visit with some well-known friends via video conferencing. Lin-Manuel Miranda joins in singing along to “Old McDonald Had a Farm,” while Anne Hathaway pops in for a round of “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” and Tracee Ellis Ross plays “Elmo Says” with the furry red muppet.
