The famous children’s TV program, Takalani Sesame will return to air new episodes on SABC.

The show follows the adventures of Elmo and Zuzu, two best friends exploring their world. Each episode features your favorite Takalani Sesame characters including new faces; Basma and Jad.

Jad is an almost-six-year-old, yellow monster who loves to plan and organise. His favourite thing is to play with his best friend Basma, but somehow they always seem to run into a problem!



Basma is a high-energy, almost-6-year-old, purple monster who jumps right into action whenever there is a problem to be solved. Despite not having it all figured out, Basma is always ready to “try, try, try again” to see her through challenges that arise during play time with her best friend Jad.

The show incorporates all of South Africa’s 11 national languages, including Afrikaans, English, Zulu, Xhosa, Swazi, Ndebele, Sesotho, Northern Sotho, Tsonga, Tswana and Venda.
