SesameStreet turns 40
Today is Sesame Street's 40th anniversary. I loved watching Sesame Street when I was a kid. I loved Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird the most. I was Oscar the Grouch for Halloween one year, and when my room was too messy my parents called me Oscar the Grouch. I don't know why I could relate most to the dirty monster that lived in a garbage can? I also recall my maternal grandmother taking us to Fort Worth to see the Big Bird movie (Follow That Bird) in 1985. It was such a great outing. (Thank you Peaches!)
I also recall being completely mesmerized by the "How crayons are made" video that frequently appeared on episodes of Sesame Street. I guess it was their filler between skits?
I wonder if Owen and Presley will like Sesame Street too?
