No they won't, but considering Sesame Street is a program that teaches children to celebrate all walks of life and to be respectful of them, mixing Rosita, a Spanish speaking character with Mardi Gras, a name written in French for an event that happens before lent, doesn't make for a good teaching moment. Considering there's a perfectly good holiday right there (day of the dead) to teach young children about, that would also fit the character the weekend is supposed to be based on.

But sure, the 5 year olds won't care so why should they bother. ??

Maybe they're just playing off of New France's theme, though then again Canada isn't as known for their Mardi Gras celebration..
