As you might suspect, Today is not my day. But here I am, nonetheless. I have been instructed to “post something fun”, and this was the first thing I thought about.
Sesame Street is rapidly approaching its fortieth, birthday. As an only child(at the time) to a single mother, Sesame street was an invaluable tool to enhance the learning that was taking place in the home.
As the quantty of Television for children has exploded with the advent of cable, the relative quality has been damaged irreparably. Children’s television now has become an incubator for baby consumers.
While Sesame Street is not immune from these pressures (bear in mind, that the proceeds from CTW’s merchandise go to the company which doesnt sell advertising) it has long been a welcome reprieve from the constant hustle that passes for Kids’ TV.
Oh, my bad, this was supposed to be fun.
I would like to take this Friday and open the floor up to those of you who might like to share your Sesame Street memories, because I KNOW you have some.
