The Furchester Hotel Posted by David on May 23, 2016
Morning, hope you all had a good weekend.

Another one from me, and this time because my son absolutely loves this programme and I will admit someone else does too....

The Furchester Hotel is a BBC produced programme in collaboration with Sesame Street workshop, was filmed over 3 months in 2014 in a studio in Salford, UK. Features a brand new monster family and Elmo and Cookie Monster, working a hotel. Fun and frolics and a typical dash of muppet-awesomeness.

More detail at the official website:

The entire 52 episode run is available on Youtube, so do check it out.

The catchy theme tune can be seen here:

You can check out the huge set made for filming here: on the manufacturers website, worthy of note is the height the sets are raised at. 1.1 metres another article tells me, for the puppeteers to perform.

Also this is the first time that I've seen and heard Ryan Dillon's performance as Elmo at length and its uncanny when compared to Kevin Clash.
