The History of Sesame Street

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

The History of Sesame Street It is a television program that has educated and entertained generations of children. Conceived by Joan Cooney and Llyod Morriset in the mid 1960s, it was pitched as an experiment to test the usefulness of TV technology as an educational tool. Debuting in 1969, the show’s earliest episodes differed greatly from the show we know and love today. Originally centered on dramatizing the inner thoughts of children, its real-life cast quickly came to be overshadowed by the use of Jim Henson's Muppets, and its various animated segments that stressed the learning of letters and numbers. Broadcast in over 120 countries, with more than 20 international versions, and several spin-offs, it continues to educate and entertain children across the globe today. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look back at the History of Sesame Street.
