Sesame Street turns 40

Ya might say that Sesame Street has little to do with monkeys, robots and rocketships, and so it has little to do with Space Base 8. Not so, I’d say back to ya. I was four years old when my mom turned the channel to PBS and told me there was a new show we should watch. That show, of course, was Sesame Street, and it was the best show on television. For me, anyway. Sesame Street taught me just as much about humor and storytelling as it did about the difference between near and far and the letter  “J”. Without Sesame Street, would I ever have become a fan of silly looking characters doing ridiculous things? I am glad I didn’t have to find out!

So blow out the candle, Sesame Street. The whole world loves you!
