“Helpsters Help You,” a new series of six shorts from the makers of “Sesame Street” is now on Apple TV+. Starring Cody, the enthusiastic leader of the Helpsters, and produced in partnership with Sesame Workshop, each mini-episode will stream for free, exclusively on Apple TV+, and is created to provide emotional support for preschoolers and parents living in the time of COVID-19. The first episode of “Helpsters Help You” is now streaming, and new episodes will continue to roll out for free, every Friday on Apple TV+. “Helpsters Help You” is inspired by Apple’s Parents’ Choice and Common Sense Media Award-winning series “Helpsters.”
Each “Helpsters Help You” short will be broadcast from inside the Helpsters’ shop, and will feature Cody giving out helpful tips and songs. In the first episode, Cody wants to visit her favorite tree but the park is closed, so she makes a new plan. With families around the world staying at home, Apple is featuring curated collections of free shows, movies, music, podcasts, books, apps and games for families and kids of all ages. These collections have been created to help parents educate and entertain their kids and to assist teachers who are exploring creative ways to facilitate remote learning.
“Helpsters Help You” follows Cody and the Helpsters, a team of vibrant monsters who love to solve problems. Whether it’s planning a party, climbing a mountain or mastering a magic trick, the Helpsters can figure anything out — because everything starts with a plan.
The new shorts join an award-winning lineup of shows from today’s most trusted brands in kids and family programming that are now streaming for free on Apple TV+, including “ Fraggle Rock: Rock On!” from the Jim Henson Company”; “Helpsters” and “Ghostwriter” from Sesame Workshop; and the Annie and DGA Award-winning “Snoopy in Space,” from Peanuts.
Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
