For the first time, hosts from China’s CCTV children’s channel will mingle with Sesame Street Muppets thanks to a collaboration with Sesame Workshop on a Spring Festival-themed special.

The one-hour special series, entitled Happy New Year, is airing every night this week with various themes designed to encourage kids to learn more about the Chinese Spring Festival. During the special, there is a segment called Chinese New Year, where Elmo, Cookie Monster and Lily chat with CCTV hosts about special traditions and customs. The Chinese New Year segments will be re-broadcast from January 31-February 6 on CCTV Children’s Channel.
