Looking for a fun show to share with your little ones? A new collection of shorts produced in partnership with the Sesame Workshop have premiered for free on Apple TV+. Starring Cody, the enthusiastic leader of the Helpsters each mini-episode is created to provide emotional support for preschoolers and parents living in the time of COVID-19.  

Helpsters Help You

The first episode of Helpsters Help You is now streaming, and new episodes will continue to roll out for free every Friday.  Helpsters Help You is inspired by Apple’s Parents’ Choice and Common Sense Media Award-winning series Helpsters.  Each short will be broadcast from inside the Helpsters’ shop, and will feature Cody giving out helpful tips and songs. 

In the first episode, Cody wants to visit her favorite tree but the park is closed, so she makes a new plan. With families around the world staying at home Apple is featuring curated collections of free shows, movies, music, podcasts, books, apps and games for families and kids of all ages.

The new shorts join an award-winning lineup of shows  that are now streaming for free on Apple TV+, including Fraggle Rock: Rock On! from the Jim Henson Company”; Helpsters and Ghostwriter from Sesame Workshop; and the Annie and DGA Award-winning Snoopy in Space, from Peanuts.
