Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Shalom Sesame: Kibbutz is the third episode in the Muppets special edition series Shalom Sesame, an educational journey through ancient and modern Israel. Kids meet old and new Muppet friends on "Rechov Sumsum," the Israeli version of Sesame Street, including Grover, Cookie Monster, Moishe Oofnick the grouch, and Kippy ben Kipod, a large porcupine. In this episode, actress Bonnie Franklin joins the Muppets for a tour of authentic Kibbutz Ein Gedi on the coast of the Dead Sea. Orchards and farm animals abound, along with productive factories. Children learn how this community of residents lives and works together and how the kibbutz works towards efficiency.
