Happy 48th Birthday ‘Sesame Street’!
NEW YORK – Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? On Nov. 10, 1969, the iconic show premiered for the first time, teaching millions of kids their ABCs and revolutionizing children’s television programming around the world. The idea for the show is rumored to have started at a New York City dinner party hosted by co-creator Joan Ganz Cooney, according to WPIX. A guest had mentioned his daughter was glued to their TV, and Cooney decided to study if it was possible to make a show that was both educational and entertaining. After years of research, the show received funding and set out on a mission to prepare young, underprivileged kids for school.
