This undated photo provided by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment shows the Grover Coaster at the current Sesame Place theme park located in Langhorne, Penn., and is the nation's only theme park based entirely on the award-winning educational program Sesame Street. On Thursday, May 18, 2017, SeaWorld Entertainment and Sesame Workshop announced an extension of their 37-year partnership to include the development of an additional Sesame Place theme park scheduled to open by 2021 in a U.S. location to be determined. The new license agreement extends SeaWorld's status as Sesame Workshop's exclusive theme park partner in the U.S. and makes it possible for Sesame Street characters to continue to appear at the existing distinct Sesame Street lands inside the company's two Busch Gardens theme parks and SeaWorld theme parks in San Diego and San Antonio, as well as a new Sesame Street land to be built in SeaWorld Orlando in the near future.

This June 22, 2010 photo released by Sesame Workshop, "Sesame Street" characters Elmo, second from right, and Super Grover, right, pose with four new muppets representing healthy food groups; fruits, vegetables, dairy, and grains as part of their "Food For Thought: Eating Well on a Budget" initiative in New York. Sesame Street continues to attract millions of viewers after 45 years on the air, appealing to both preschoolers and their parents with content that is educational and entertaining. The show has kept up with the times by making its segments faster-paced, by fine-tuning messages, and by keeping a steady flow of appearances by contemporary celebrity guests. The show first aired Nov. 10, 1969. (AP Photo/Sesame Workshop, Richard Termine, File)
