Sesame Street turns 40

In 1969, Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrissette teamed with a young puppeteer named Jim Henson to create a television show geared towards educating children but was still entertaining enough for parents to enjoy alongside their kids. 40 years later, that very show, Sesame Street, is still growing strong.

Unique in its approach, the PBS mainstay combined live-action adults and kids interacting with colorful puppets who inhabited the urban melting pot neighborhood of Sesame Street. Not only did kids learn letters, numbers, and words, they also picked up valueable social skills before heading off to kindergarten and beyond. People from all different ethnicities, religions, and walks of life interacted with kids and puppets, showing just how similar everyone really is. Chances are, kids learned how to deal with insults (thanks to the curmugeonly Oscar the Grouch), friendship from best pals Ernie and Bert, and even attempting to understand death with the passing of beloved store owner, Mr. Hooper.

For 40 years, Sesame Street has been entertaining and educating. Celebrate this multi-generational favorite by picking up collectors’ edition books and DVDs released in honor of this event. Or, dress up and have your very own Sesame Street party with your own little ones. Available in adult and kids’ sizes are officially licensed costumes of fan-favorite characters like Bert and Ernie. Showcase your grouchier side with an Oscar the Grouch costume, complete with portable trashcan!

Dress the kids up as newer generation faves like Elmo and Abby Cadabby! Celebrate Sesame Street’s 40th in style!
