Play with Me Sesame UK

In the United Kingdom, Play with Me Sesame aired on Playhouse Disney UK. It showcased old and new Muppet (and sometimes film) clips from Sesame Street, with new linked segments, that featured Bert, Ernie, Grover, and Prairie Dawn. The show also included cameos by Zoe, Cookie Monster, and Ernie's niece Ernestine. The show also featured two British Muppets, Kit and Domby, who live in a castle on top of a hill. They spent most of their time in the castle kitchen, bedroom and living room, which were very similar to Bert and Ernie sketches. Kit had an English accent, whilst Domby had a Scottish accent. They sometimes visited schools and playgroups, to sing or talk with the children.


In Ireland, the show aired on TG4, in Irish, as Tar ag Spraoi Sesame.


When Play with Me Sesame aired on the Hallmark Channel in Asia during October 2003, the Prairie Dawn segments were cut for time.


In Denmark, the show was included as its own segment on Sesamgade.


In Portugal, the show aired in the block Zig Zag on RTP 2, in Portuguese, as Abre-te Sésamo in 2007.
