Sesame Street Trivia- Sesame Street 40th anniversary

“Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street”

Sesame Street was a part of my childhood and if you’re under 40 it was likely a part of your childhood too.

If you’ve used Google lately then you know that “Sesame Street” has taken over Google’s Doodle! Google will be using “Sesame Street Doodles” until Nov. 10 in celebration of the show’s 40th season. Sesame Street first premiered on November 10, 1969. It’s hard to believe “Sesame Street” has been around for 40 years.

Commemorating their 40th anniversary a new DVD “Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days,” is set to be released Nov 10th.

Who was your favorite “Sesame Street” character?

My daughter loved ” Elmo” and “Cookie Monster.” My husband does a fabulous “Cookie Monster” impersonation.

“C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me.”

He dressed up as “Cookie Monster” for my daughters 5th birthday, maybe it was her 6th. Anyhow, her birthday is in July so you can imagine how hot it was in that suit.
