A new block to explore

When Sesame Street starts its 25th season on PBS this fall, there will be a whole new block to explore. Executive producer Michael Loman announced Tuesday during Public Television's annual meeting that the Sesame Street set will be dramatically updated for the first time, allowing for more story lines and characters. "We will be looking at a whole range of family issues," Loman said. The "just around the corner" set, double the size of the existing set, will feature a hotel for animals, an apartment building for people and a park for both. Two adults and four children will be added, along with several muppets, including the "new" Motown singing group "The Squi-rells," three girl squirrels named Rhonda, Darlene and Crystal. _ JENNIFER L.
