Sesame Street Celebrates 40 Years with a Party

Sesame Street PartyAfter 40 years of teaching us and our children and going still going strong they deserve a celebration.  So I would like to say “Happy Anniversary Sesame Street”  I look forward to you continuing on and teaching my grandchildren as well  some day. The 40th season kicked off with Michelle Obama encouraging kids to plant their own gardens and to eat healthy.  Looks like Sesame Street is going Green and adding the  new  My World is Green and Growing curriculum. With new sketches focused on teaching kids about loving our natural world. I think I like it and may have to tune in – you are never too old to watch right?

Sesame_Street_40th_LogoI am still in amazement that a lot of the same actors are still on the show from when I watched as a child and look as though they have hardly aged – I would like to know how that happens? I want in on the secret.  Characters like Bob, Maria, Luis and Gordon to name a few. Maybe we are all being fooled and they are all puppets too.

So their Celebration Party will continue all year and you will also see some well know celebrities joining in like:

  • Meredith Vieira
  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Hugh Jackman
  • Jimmy Fallon
  • Eva Longoria
  • Adam Sandler
  • Tiki Barber
  • Jeff Gordon
  • Kobe Bryant
  • Julianna Marguiles

And that is not even the full  Celebrity  line up – so it will be a fun packed 40th year for all of those who are watching for sure!!! Of course all our favorite friends will also be back like Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Elmo, Abby Caddaby, The Count, Grover, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch and so on – I think they are the real Celebrities!!

I must say if it were not for Sesame Street I would have never known C was for Cookie, How a Bill became a Law, How to say “Agua” – Spanish for water, Near and Far and so many other things.

Here are two of my favorites from my Sesame Street watching days: Enjoy!!
