Sesame Street

The Latinization Of Marco

Season 42, Episode 62 of 99

Gina is reading a book to Marco about the Spanish names for animals. Rosita asks what she is doing and Gina explains that since Marco was born in Guatemala where people speak Spanish, she would like him (and herself) to learn Spanish too. Rosita explains that there is so much more to learn and dashes off to get her guitar. She plays a little guitarrra for them, and then zips off to get more instruments, claves, maracas, guiro, and a bongo, and sings a song about "musica." After they finish singing, Rosita tells Gina that there is also baile which is the Spanish word for dance. Rosita dances the tango, merengue, and conga, and sings a fun song about other kinds of Spanish dances. Next, Rosita tells Gina and Marco all about different comidas which is the Spanish word for food, and chefs deliver a delicious feast for them to enjoy. Rosita says that with musica, baile, and comida there's one thing you have to do- have a fiesta with your amigos! Everyone shows up to the party and sings about being "amigos".
