Happy 30th Birthday to a wonderful show!
I am 23 years old and I grew up watching Sesame Street. I love this show. It's so very educational but it makes it fun. I was probably eight or nine when my mom finally corrected me and told me that the real words to the Beatles song I often sang were "Let It Be", not "Letter B".

I have so many fond memories of this show. Hats off to Sesame Street's 30th birthday and here's to 30 more. This is a show that I want my children to be able to grow up with as well. I applaud and thank the cast and crew for their dedication to children.

Oh yes, finally, I love Elmo & Grover & Telly Monster & Cookie Monster & Kermit the Frog & Snuffie, & Big Bird & Bert & Ernie& Harry & yes, even Oscar the Grouch.

Sunny Day, everythings A- OK. Friendly Neighbors. That's where we meet. Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street.

Trivia

Possibly the only topic that has never been dealt with on the show is divorce. The producers tried in 1991 with an episode titled "Snuffy's Parents Get a Divorce". In the episode, Snuffy's parents are shown arguing and his sister, Alice, is shown reacting by hitting her teddy bear. The script was reviewed by child psychologists who suggested an emphasis on telling children that if their parents get divorced, their parents will still love them and the divorce is not their fault. The episode was tested on children in daycare centers. But the children came away with those same negative messages. The episode was never aired. In another 1991 episode, Kermit the Frog interviews a bird who sings about how her parents still love her even though they no longer live together though it is not directly stated that her parents are divorced.


Quotes

Grover: Yes, it is I, *Sup*-er Grover! Protector of small children and bunny rabbits!


Goofs

During the "Remembering Game" sketch, when Cookie Monster calls "Number 4", a stagehand's arm is visible reaching behind the game board at the bottom right of the screen.


Crazy Credits

Alternate Versions

In 2006, selected episodes from the first five seasons of the series (1969-1973) were released to DVD. Due to rights issues regarding music and some footage, slight edits were made to these episodes, sometimes involving substituting other segments. In addition, the 5 complete episodes in the set (entitled Sesame Street: Old School Vol. 1) are each preceded by newly made animated segments introducing each episode.
