Sesame Street Hits 40: Providing Years of Costume Favorites
You know them, even if you are no longer a child and have not seen a show in years- you know who the Sesame Street gang is. The gang has been around for forty years as of November 10, 2009. For these four decades Sesame Street has been instrumental in teaching children and adults a variety of important topics.
Though the show is for children, they have discussed many important topics such as psychology, how to help your children and much more. Education is the foundation of this puppet show. Sesame Street is set in a fake Brooklyn City where Big Bird and his many friends live. Aside from the puppets of the show, Sesame Street has had a number of very popular celebrities on their show.
For the 40th anniversary show, Michelle Obama stopped by. She was helping to teach children and the puppet cast of Sesame Street how to grow a cucumber. Over the years Sesame Street has grown as a result of some of the big- named guests and celebrities who have appeared. Jessica Alba, Maya Angelou, Alan Arkin, Lauren Bacall, Tyra Banks, Joshua Bell, Tony Bennett, Jack Black, Andrea Bocelli, Garth Brooks, Jim Carrey and John Candy are just a few of the celebrities who have appeared on Sesame Street. Even Bill Cosby, Hillary Clinton, Rosemary Clooney, Cher, Robert De Niro, and Mel Gibson have made appearances.
If you want a unique and magical birthday for November or even a great Thanksgiving costume party you might consider the gang of Sesame Street for your themes. After all if you invite Big Bird you’ll have enough to feed everyone! Sorry, a bit of humor there. But, seriously, for a Thanksgiving theme this year consider a Big Bird costume or perhaps the Count costume. The Count is always willing to provide a lesson in numbers to help you get the meal out on time and done to perfection.
No party will be complete without Elmo costumes. He is the life of the party, with his bouncy, ticklish nature. Bert and Ernie are waiting in the wings to show up as well to make an entire feast day. Sesame Street can teach you a lot whether you watch the show or decide to bring them round for the holidays to teach the meaning of Thanksgiving. So celebrate their 40th anniversary in style!
