Can you believe that we have been watching the 8 foot, yellow feathered 6 year old for 40 years (I’m not forty yet so it’s been around my whole life). Sesame Street turns forty today. I can remember countless mornings of my mother yelling at me to get ready and not being able to break away from The Count long enough to put on my socks.
Sesame Street was created as an experiment to see if children could be taught by television. What a great experiment? If only TV was kept for positive influence for children, the world would be a brighter place.
Well I don’t know if Sesame Street can compete with Dora the Explore or Sponge Bob in the area of popularity, but I know that it’s my preference. My favorites by far would have to be Oscar the Grouch and Kermit. The Grouch always spoke what was on his mind and Kermit is just super cute! It still amazes me to know that the same guy that brings Big Bird to life is the same guy responsible for Oscar the Grouch. It’s not easy being green.
