Sesame Street 1969 Opening Credits


I am sure most of us knows the Sesame Street because all of us have a chance to watched it. Sesame Street is an American educational children's television series and a pioneer of the contemporary educational television standard, combining both education and entertainment. Sesame Street is well known for its Muppets characters created by Jim Henson. It premiered on November 10, 1969 and this year, Sesame Street is celebrating its 40th year.

Sesame Street has a total of 36 seasons and 4,186 episodes so far. It is the longest running children's program perhaps not only in the United States but in the world.


Sesame Street: Cookie Monster Sings C is for Cookie


It is produced in the United States by the non-profit organization Sesame Workshop, formerly known as the Children's Television Workshop (CTW), founded by Joan Ganz Cooney and Ralph Rogers.


Sesame Street: The Count Counts Once More With Feelings


Some of its most popular characters includes Kermit The Frog and his love interest Miss Piggy, The Cookie Monster which does all the cookie munching but without actually eating them, the adorable Dracula, the huge Big Bird and Elmo.


Debbie Harry & Kermit the Frog - The Rainbow Connection


I hope that kids will continue to enjoy Sesame Street and will value the learning that it imparts to kids around the world. HAPPY 40th ANNIVERSARY SESAME STREET!

Happy Anniversary to Sesame Street! I failed to watch most of their episodes for I prefer Batibot back then :)

I am also an avid fan of Batibot... perhaps Batibot was even inspired by Sesame Street. The sad thing is it started later and ended earlier.
