Apple TV+ Helpsters has become somewhat of a hit in my household since my 7 year old nephew, whom I virtual school, has become a huge fan! If you’ve never heard of the show before, let me give you a simple rundown: The Helpsters are puppets (Ssssh! they don’t know they are puppets though..) who are masters at solving problems and helping people, hence the name. I got the chance to interview one of the Helpsters Cody, and Senior Director of Production and Development, Sesame Workshop Jordan Geary. Check it out!

Apple TV+’s Helpsters Interview With Cody
I can not think of a better time to watch a show about being kind and helping others, than in the year 2020. Apple TV+‘s the Helpsters is exactly what kids need right now! Teaching them that despite the problems around us all, not to give up hope because they have many around them which will help! Check out some of the highlights from my interview with Helpster Cody and Jordan Geary.
How did Cody and his friends meet and become Helpsters?
Cody: The backstory to how the Helpsters got together, that’s a subject for a graphic novel some day!
Best part about being a Helpster?
Cody: The best part is that warm feeling you get when a customer says ‘Thanks for all the help Helpsters!’ and I say ‘You’re welcome!’ I am so proud of the work that we do and it feels so good to help people. You ever give someone the best present in the world? Well that present when you help someone is YOU!
What is it like working with Helpsters?
Jordan: It’s fun! It’s crazy, but it’s really, really fun. The thing that I like the most about working with the Helpsters is they are constantly teaching me and our family audiences that there is no problem, big or small. I personally need that reminder on a daily basis. Take a big problem and break it down into some smaller problems. Come up with a plan, work with some of your friends and overcome it.
What is it like working at The Sesame Workshop?
Jordan: Personally it’s a dream come true! I grew up watching Sesame Street, my kids watch Sesame Street. Professionally, it’s like working at the Harvard of kid’s TV. Every room that you go into, best and brightest, is there. It’s a daily pinch me moment.
