Jim Henson’s world famous Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Grover, and Oscar with all their friends will be partying big time! Today Sesame Street is celebrating Big Bird’s birthday. Then on November 10th children’s television longest running program Sesame Street is celebrating its 40th Anniversary with a brand new program format and two new books. Over 30 stars will be in the shows this coming year including Cameron Diaz, Michelle Obama, Adam Sandler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kobe Bryant, Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate, Ricky Gervais, and Greg Kinnear.
The 122 Emmy Award winning program is changing smartly with the times. “While maintaining an emphasis on the importance of literacy and numeracy, the new season kicks-off “My World is Green & Growing,” a two-year science initiative designed to increase positive attitudes towards nature, deepen children’s knowledge about the natural world and encourage behavior that shows respect and care for the environment.” (From Link here.)
Happy Birthday, Big Bird!
