This December, Cartoonito, the preschool hub on HBO Max and preschool block on Cartoon Network, is celebrating the holidays with four all-new 30-minute Cartoonito holiday specials plus additional holiday-themed programming preschoolers and families can enjoy all month-long.

Premiering on 12/1 on Cartoonito on HBO Max is Sesame Street The Nutcracker, the classic story is retold Sesame Street-style in an animated special that follows Elmo and his puppy Tango on a fantastical adventure filled with new music and friends. This 30-minute festive feature is a celebration of the greatest gift of all: friendship.

The holidays are here on Sesame Street, and Elmo is determined to make it the best Christmas ever for Tango. At Elmo’s family holiday party, friends and family sing about how wonderful this holiday will be. The Count arrives bearing gifts for everyone, including a wind-up rocket ship for Elmo and a cute, nutcracker-shaped doggy toy for Tango. After a fun-filled night, Elmo and Tango fall asleep listening to Elmo’s dad, Louie, read them the story of The Nutcracker. Elmo drifts into a dream sequence where Tango can speak, and that’s when the adventure to magical lands begin.

Just a few days later on 12/5, three shows will be debuting holiday themed episodes starting with Sesame Street Builders at 9 am.
