I have fond memories of watching Sesame Street as a kid and sure that many of you do also. It was one of my favorite television programs growing up. Even today, if I happen to be surfing through the channels in the morning, I’ll stop and watch it if it’s playing for a blast of nostalgia. The show first premiered on November 10, 1969, and has been a beloved children’s educational program ever since.
On November 10th, 2014, Sesame Street celebrated 45 years of helping kids learn in a fun and creative way. It featured sketches and memorable characters like Big Bird, Grover, Kermit, the Cookie Monster and so many more. Sesame Street has become a cultural icon, with its colorful cast of characters and educational content. It continues to inspire and entertain generations of children around the world.
There are many classic moments over its 45-year history on PBS but one of my favorites is Kermit the frog and Joey reciting the alphabet. It’s funny throughout but the end will melt your heart and is so cute.
Watch Kermit the frog and Joey reciting the alphabet on Sesame Street…
The show is made special by everyone who works on the program. There are dozens and dozens of people that have been entertaining children for decades. Bob McGrath, Emilio Delgado, Roscoe Orman, Loretta Long, and Sonia Manzano have been with Sesame Street since the early seventies and many like McGrath were part of the original cast.
Its impact on early childhood education and entertainment is immeasurable. It continues to be a force for good in the world, promoting diversity, kindness, and empathy through its engaging content.
