The show that gave us Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster is getting ready to turn 50!
Sesame Workshop, the organization behind “Sesame Street,” has announced a year long celebration of its 50th year. The show began in 1969 and has been teaching children everything from the ABC’s to compassion and more.
As part of the their celebration, Sesame Workshop will launch new social impact initiatives, digital campaigns and community events in honor of the milestone anniversary, including a nationwide road trip featuring Sesame Street characters and an expansion of the Sesame Street in Communities initiative. The season’s episodes are centered around the power of possibilities, and in November there’ll be a star-studded TV special.
It all began in 1969 on a street where colorful Muppets and humans lived -- and learned -- side by side. Today, 50 years later, we are excited to announce a yearlong anniversary celebration to mark the occasion!
