Happy 40th Birthday Sesame Street
As I mentioned last week, Sesame Street turns 40 today! I didn't get a chance to see it (we've moved on, perhaps prematurely, to Sponge Bob) but I understand that Michelle Obama appeared on the show today to kick off the new season. That's a pretty significant way to celebrate the big 4-oh!
I can remember watching Sesame Street in the early 1970s and liking Ernie and Bert, Grover - as Super Grover! and the waiter, and Mr. Hooper. I always found it annoying that people didn't believe Big Bird that Snuffleupagus was real - it wasn't until 1985 that the grown-ups finally met him!
Which are your favorite characters?
