Sesame Street

Sesame Street has been a fixture in children's television since 1969. It is an hour long show for preschool age children that educates and entertains at the same time. The show was originally created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett and has recorded over 4,000 episodes.


Sesame Street ran for many years using a magazine type format where there were a number of skits, songs, stories, and other types of entertainment throughout the show. This changed in 1998 when "Elmo's World" was introduced where there were still a series of skits, animation, muppets, etc. but the different scenes all followed the same story line. Today the entire show is run more this way. There is still a lot of variety, but there is generally a lot of repetition and a narrative that tie the different aspects of the show together.


Sesame Street uses a combination of real human characters combined with puppets and animated characters. It is mostly known for the puppets, which are called Muppets and were created by Jim Henson. Here is a list of some of the more famous Muppets from Sesame Street: Fun Facts about Sesame Street
