Feliz Cumpleaños Sesame Place!

Holy moly it's been 40 years since Sesame Street first came into our lives. It's actually only been 37 years since Sesame Street entered the lives of Latin America. Either way congrats to Jim Henson and his entire team. If you haven't noticed, Google is running a Big Bird Doodle on its homepage. The bird's cute orange-and-pink legs make up the "L" in Google. Pretty cool if you ask me.
If you're a die-hard fan, you can pre-order the Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days DVD which has over 5 hours of iconic moments, favorite songs, celebrity segments and exclusive never-before-seen backstage footage. The series has enriched our lives ever since we were kids and continue to do so today. It's one of those shows we have to show our children alone watching because they learn so much. Jim Henson's creations have and will continue to live on.


If you're in Philadelphia, here are just a few places you can celebrate the show that touched our lives:
  1. Jim Henson's Fantastic World Exhibit at the Michener Museum
  2. Theme Park season may be over, but Sesame Place has events throughout the holidays
