Sesame Street turns 40
Over the past week, Sesame Street has been congratulated all over the net for it's 40th anniversary. It's hard to believe that it's been forty years, since that day in 1969, when its founder Joan Cooney introduced Sesame Street to the world. In 1998, Joan Cooney conducted a fascinating 9-part interview series about Sesame Street, which is now hosted on You Tube. Check it out here!

You can even find the Sesame Street characters embedded all over the Google search engine logo over the past week. Even US First Lady Michelle Obama took Elmo on a walk through Sesame Street recently - here! Happy 40th Birthday Sesame Street!
