Sesame Street is 35!
The very first broadcast of Sesame Street, the children's educational show, was on November 10th, 1969. Jim Hensons fun-loving muppets helped to teach young children about numbers, letters, and social values. The fact that the show strove to encompass a cross-section of our nations population using family events, music, food, and dress to teach kids about the world around them, made it especially unique. Over 136 million children from over 130 countries have benefited from the shows success. It will no doubt be a special way for new parents to bond with their children, for how many shows are still on the air from their childhood? Happy 35th Birthday Sesame Street and many more!
