“Helpsters” is a live-action pre-school series from the makers of “Sesame Street,” featuring Cody and the Helpsters, a team of vibrant monsters who love to solve problems. Whether it’s planning a day at the beach, inventing a new machine, or learning how to line dance, the Helpsters can figure anything out — because everything starts with a plan.
Honored with a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Award and Common Sense Media Award, “Helpsters” has been recognized as “immersive, educational and entertaining,” teaching young viewers important lessons in pre-coding skills and inspires collaboration, self-confidence, friendship and much more.
Emmy Award winner and Parents’ Choice Gold Medal winner Tim McKeon (“Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends: Destination Imagination,” “Odd Squad”) is the creator of “Helpsters.” He and Kay Wilson Stallings, Sesame Workshop’s executive vice president of Creative and Production, serve as executive producers. Eileen Braun is the series’ showrunner.
