The Amazing Adventures of Elmo and Zoe

The Amazing Adventures of Elmo and Zoe was a Sesame Place show that ran from 1997 to 2000 in Sesame Studio. It replaced The Wild Duckie Chase (a similar style show that opened in 1989.)

The show took place on a "green screen" studio giving kids a chance to act in a show with Sesame Street characters through chromakey technology:

Kids would walk across the stage would interact with pre-taped Sesame Street footage. Children would parade in front of Big Bird:

The story involved Zoe going to outer space. Big Bird watched through binoculars:

The audience was told to act excited as they were included in the adventure:

Then a group of children dance with Elmo before he jumped on a trampoline and into outer space to save Zoe:

Today the theater is home to the very popular Elmo's World Live show:
