Another special Sesame Street Thanksgiving

In 1982, the actor who played Mr. Hooper on Sesame Street died.
The producers struggled with how to let their young audience know what happened.
On Thanksgiving Day 1983, they ran a special episode letting Big Bird and the cast deal with the character's passing.
This Thanksgiving season, we're dealing with the departure of the voice of Elmo.
Any special plans for next Thanksgiving, Sesame Street?
