Sesame Street Day
Sesame Street has had a profound impact on the lives of many people, especially those under fifty. Sesame Street Day was established to recognize the profound impact this television program has had on the lives of millions.

Sesame Street was created by the Children’s Television Workshop in 1969. It is currently broadcast on the Public Broadcasting Service, (PBS). The educational series combines animation and live actors. It is also known as “Muppets”, because it uses special puppets created by Jim Henson.
Many of the characters that recurring on the show have been with it for many years. Ernie, Bert, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Kermit the Frog are just a few examples. Elmo was introduced in the mid-80s, and many other characters joined the show since then.
The show aims to provide educational opportunities for children of all age through songs, skits, short vignettes and cameo appearances. It encourages learning, engages their minds, builds social skills, promotes self-esteem, and provides basic academic skills.
Although the show’s finances started as a collaboration between private and public corporations, they are now mostly financially independent thanks to licensing agreements and corporate deals that keep it alive.
Over the years, hundreds of celebrities have visited Sesame Street. In 1969, James Earl Jones began the show. He sang the alphabet using a variety of delightful voices. Over 800 guests have been invited to the show, including politicians (President Bill Clinton), musicians(New York Philharmonic), journalists (‚ÄúKatie Courick‚Äù), actors (‚ÄúJohn Krasinski‚Äù) and athletes (‚ÄúMichael Phelps‚Äù).

Sesame Street is available in over 140 countries, in at least 70 different languages. There are also more than 30 international versions that have been adapted to local culture and issues. All of this is done with the goal of creating happy, healthy, and well-rounded children who are actively involved in learning and living.
