Sesame Street are planning new Kazakh Donkey Character

In a move by Sesame Workshop to get parents more interested in the programs their children watch, Sacha Baron Cohen's character, Borat, will place his daughter into the care of the Muppets of Sesame Street. The announcement was first seen as an in-character video on Borat's official website; Sesame Workshop later confirmed this news in a press release.

The role is still to be cast, but Sesame Workshop representatives say the child will recognize the relationship between Borat and the character's wife, Luenell.

Fans of Cohen's Da Ali G Show have their doubts about the role, as this would mark the first appearance of this child. It also has the potential for setting the entire character's timeline out of order, as a son produced from the movie would still be too young for the show.

Still, some fans are getting their laughs. "I haven't watched Sesame Street since I was seven," says one humored parent. "If this goes through, I may end up watching it again!"

Another representative stated that a possible Borat segment would appear regularly on the show. "It's going to be something in the nature of a postcards segment where Cohen will tell his daughter about his travels through the U.S." There is no word on whether or not this will lead to a sequel to Cohen's movie, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Given the measures that Sesame Workshop takes before making a major change in the series, representatives say that the first "Baby Sagdiyev" episodes can be expected within one or two years.
