A landmark series set in an ethnically diverse urban neighborhood where every day is a sunny one. It features songs, skits, animation and, of course, Muppets to teach preschoolers basic educational and social concepts. A public-television gem that's older than PBS itself, 'Sesame Street' debuted in 1969 on National Educational Television. Since that time, this influential show has won more Emmys than any other in TV history (more than 90 at last count) and can be seen in more than 140 countries.
This classic (old & new) children's program is an essential staple in a toddler, preschooler or child's life. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I never missed an episode and now a mother, I have passed on the legacy to my children. With a few new characters and segments to freshen the scene for the viewing audience, not a lot has changed with the format. All the original characters (human and Muppets!) are still in place, along with their own growing family and some new neighbors, too. With catchy songs, rhymes, repetition in learning is key. The show always provides a great sense of humor and authentic experience for both the parent and the child. You can't miss out on Sesame Street!
