40 years of imagination – Sesame Street

Can you imagine – an idea that captures the heart and minds of so many that almost everyone alive today most likely was touched by the values, ideas and humor of this show. 

Sesame Street GangDid you know that Oscar the Grouch was orange in the first year?   That his personality was designed after a New York City Cab driver?

Did you get caught up in the Elmo phase?  Did you try the “Tickle me Elmo” or the “dancing Elmo”?

Which character do you remember the most?  Did you have a doll from the show?  Which one?  Do you see it in stores today and smile – recalling those memories?  Have you acquired a doll for your children or watched a show with them?

Do you have an idea?  Do you have a dream?  The folks who created Sesame Street kept their dream going – even as competitors entered the space and as naysayers tried to get the show canceled.

Happy birthday Sesame Street!   Keep imagination alive!
