Happy 45th Birthday To Sesame Street!


Oh! I just found out it’s Sesame Street’s 45th birthday today so I figured I should do a quick little post at a totally irregular time for me. (No one will see this anyway – I think I scared everyone off with my rectum & testicle post yesterday). ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m such a huge fan of Sesame Street. I won’t go into it again in this post – you can read what I had to say about it HERE in my list of My Top Thirty TV Shows (it’s number three but, in many ways, it’s actually number one). Best show for kids EVER.

This Time article is an interesting read: 5 Things You Didnโ€™t Know About the Early (Sunny) Days of Sesame Street.


Also, it’s the 40th anniversary of another favorite from my childhood: Little House On The Prairie (number five on my Top Thirty list). Damn I’m old!!!! Check out this Entertainment Weekly article: ‘Little House on the Prairie’ reunion: The cast remembers life in Walnut Grove.

Well, I ended my TV post with two of my favorite clips from Sesame Street (the Yip Yip Martians & The Pinball Song) so here are a couple more.


I still say “and a stick of butter!” when rattling off a shopping list… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I’ve always taken great pride in being of the “Sesame Street generation”.” I was born in November of 1966- so I was the target age of their target audience when they first premiered. I adored it and have SO many fond memories attached to this show.


    • Thanks Kellee. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was a little later but still very much a part of the Sesame Street generation (the really good pre-Elmo stuff!). I also have such great memories attached to this show. Even at my current age, Sesame Street NEVER fails to put a smile on my face. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m SO disappointed that they don’t show it in the UK!
