Stream or download Sesame Workshop’s first-ever animated Sesame Street special The Monster at the End of This Story now available on HBO GO –though its star, Grover, is begging fans not to watch!
A reimagining of Sesame Street’s all-time best-selling picture book ‘The Monster at the End of This Book,’ the special follows Grover’s reluctant journey to the end of the story, where, based on the title, he believes a monster awaits.
Drawn in the unmistakable style of the beloved book first published in 1971, the special adds new sequences, songs and surprises, and introduces other familiar Sesame Street characters, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, and Rosita, to the tale.
“After nearly 50 years, the lesson in ‘The Monster at the End of This Book’ remains timeless: It‘s okay to feel afraid, but also important to have courage and keep moving forward in spite of those fears,” said Kay Wilson Stallings, Sesame Workshop’s Executive Vice President of Creative and Production.
“We brought this classic story from page to screen in a way that will feel familiar to longtime fans and exciting and engaging for young viewers. By expanding the original narrative and adding new layers, we share a strong lesson in friendship, showing how Grover learns to manage his fear with the support of his friends.”
