Happy Anniversary, Sesame Street

Since this week mark’s Sesame Street’s 40th anniversary, John and I were waxing nostaligic about our childhood memories of the show.  I think we can all agree that it’s went downhill since it’s heydey in the late ’70s-late ’80s when Mr. Hooper was still around and everyone still thought Big Bird had a screw loose when talked about his imaginary friend, which was a huge brown elephant-looking thing. 

In any case, thanks to the magic of the internet, we can bring a few of these memories back for another look:

    I had no idea this one was from 1971, but I was watching it in the early 80s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDgAdXTcs00

    I can’t say how often a Sesame Street clip will pop into my head randomly. It was a big influence when I was little. Like you talked about this morning: this was about all I could watch when I was little. This and Reading Rainbow.
