the coolest street in town

Forty years ago today, the first episode of Sesame Street was born. It was sponsored by the letters W, S and E and the numbers 2 and 3. Since that day, the show has done a brilliant job of evolving with the times. It is still relevant. It is still teaching in a way that speaks to us. And it is still freaking awesome.

I’ve posted some clips of the Yip-Yip Aliens already, so here’s one with Kermit, Cookie, and the Mystery Box. I love that Cookie has recently explained how cookies are “sometimes food” while fruit is for everyday. Not that he’s thinking about fruit here.

Happy birthday, Sesame Street!
