Sesame Street Is Turning 40, Turn In Tomorrow For The Season Premire!

Tomorrow, November 10th 2009, will mark the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street! I think that's pretty cool! I grew up watching it and still enjoy watching it today with my kids.

Sesame Street first aired on November 10th, 1969 and was sponsored by the letters W, S, and E and the numbers 2 and 3. It's the longest running children's program on television in the US and holds the record for most Emmy Awards given to a single show with 122.

Pictured in black and white, is how I remember the cast as a kid. I was 4 in 1979, so about their 10th season sounds about right. I'm amazed that so many members of the early cast are still on the show. Bob McGrath and Loretta Long, who play Bob and Susan, have been since the first season!

Check your listings and tune into PBS tomorrow morning for the 40th season premiere. It will episode 4,187!! This season will focus on environmental issues. The season is "designed to nurture young children's appreciation and love for nature".

Here in Dallas, the premiere will air tomorrow at 11am. Do you have any favorite Sesame Street clips or characters? Please, share them with me!!

I always liked the Tiny Little Super Guy and the pin ball thing that counts to 12, oh, and the older version of the bug family that lives in the milk carton.

I grew up watching Sesame street too. I have a few favorites but I love Oscar, the Grouch! I think he's a softie at heart :)
