Sesame Street is unexplainable to me. As a little kid, I was over obsessed and couldn't get enough. Now seeing my little kids watch it makes me joyous inside. The bright smiles light up on their faces when they learn something new or figure out a solution. It makes me kind of sad that they changed "Cookie Monster" to "Veggie Monster". I know it is for the best, but it is hard to see one of my favorite characters gone. It does help my kids eat their veggies though, on their little "Veggie Monster" plates [which actually are "Cookie Monster" plates]. Sesame Street makes a preschoolers day light up!
I must say,nowadays,parents are in need of an educational show to educate their kids when they don't have enough tme to do it themselves.This,TTTE ,and some others I can't think of,stand out from a lot of other preschool shows
Dora the Explorer:Just a show about a dumb little retard who runs out into,whatever unsupervised. Barney:Gay!
Telletubies:What's educational about made up creatures in a made up world who can't speak proper english and can only focus heavilly on bright colors?
Doodlebops:Just singing and gayness(I'm not sure if that's even a real word)
Bob the Builder:Just a show about morons who love working
Sesame street has been one of my favourite show since I can remember when i started watching them. Sesame street has so many different characters and they teach more things than other shows because they have so much life, colour into what they want to let the children learn about their basics. The songs and the little dances that they try to engage the children in, would make them more active as well! Sesame street has made adults see that it is some worth letting their children watch. I give Sesame Street 2 thumbs up! It really is a marvellous show!
This show is the perfect show for little kids growing up. I remember Sesame Street for as Long as I can remember. Well I'm only 13 and it has been around for more than 40 years. My favorite character was always Snuffalupagus. I watched Sesame street until I was 6 occasionally I watch it when I baby sit my cousin who is 2. What I like is that they sometimes have celebraties on the show. The show teaches kids to accept people no matter who they might be. But I think it was a bad idea to have baby sesame street cause babies aren't ment to watch tv.
Overall best children's show ever and it will probably continue for more years to come.
Wow, this is such a cool thing to see that kids are enjoying such good programming. Its revolutionary to see that they can use these puppets to teach kids everyday lessons which they will remember for a lifetime!
Personally, my favorite Sesame Street puppet is... THE COUNT! He teaches numbers to kids, and gets the wicked Transylvania vibes going. Not to mention the bats! Oh those bats, they and the count really is the best part of the show.
Now the only thing which drags down this show... \"Elmo\'s World\". This is the worst waste of space ever. Maybe its because I don\'t like Elmo, or whatever, i\'d rather watch anything else then that red nieusance :)
Anyways, join your kids, brothers, sisters, or cousins and watch Sesame Street, it is really worth it, and a great time!
I\'d recomend this show to everyone. I have a two year old Cousin that LOVES Sesame Street. He just loves Elmo and the gang. Just seeing his face light up is all I need to know. And he\'s learning alot. You know your child is learning when he repeats numbers and letters. I hope Seasme Street will be around for many generations to come.
This show is so good it's about a bunch of critters who go on kinda like adventures the critters name's are Elmo, Erney, Bert,Zue,and Big Bird not only that this show is fun for children but it also teaches them how to count,spell,and learn their abc's this show has also been around for a while parents if your trying to find a show for your youngster try this is such a good show!

Seseme Street teaches children what first grade used to teach us. Teachers now expect students to come to school knowing their letters, numbers, etc. Some episodes are even good for the older audiance. Like when Mr. Hooper( or whatever his name was ) died. I am sure everyone has suffered a loss. Or that episode from season 32 when the hurricane ripped through the neighborhood. They have now been showing that in re-runs for people to cope with Hurricane Katrina. They even made episodes for people to cope with 9/11. They really know how to get the right message across to children.

Yes, here's another show that I wouldn't want to see on my TV. I used to watch it, but that was so many years ago! I hate to say this, but this show is really getting old, because it just teaches children the same things over and over. It never goes over the number 20! It's characters act horribly phony and are quite embarrassing! And what's worse, it has a terrible "sister" show in Spanish! There's nothing wrong with Spanish people, but the people who write THIS show have gone too far!
yes i do watch this show even though i dont like kid shows this is the only one i like i watched this back when i was 3 and still like it a little this show makes me cry badly i gave this show a 7.0 out of 10.0 though beacause im too lod to be watching this show
This show was a lifeline to me in my youngest years. I can't imagine not learning my ABC's and 123's without Sesame Street. I only hope this show is around long enough for my children to experience the joy of learning through SS. My all time favorite characters on the show were Grover, Kermit and the Count (again, 123's). Very fond memories indeed from this show.
I've been watching Sesame Street since I was two, and I'm still watching it with my nephew whose four... and I'm fourteen! This is a must see for kids when they are old enough for TV. It's educational, fun, interesting, and always has something new to learn. When ever I get really bored, I can flip to PBS and watvh Sesame Street. (Or any other great show on PBS!!!) So when you need to plop your kid down, but don't want to put something on that's even more brain- rotting than TV already is, turn on Sesame Street, and relax- your kids are in good hands.
All right i know Sesame Street has been called ''gay'' but it is'nt it's a good show for kids to enjoy i don't like the show though but i don't think it sucks but i think it is great for preschoolers and Bert and Ernie are really good entertainment for toddlers people call these guys gay when there just puppets on an educational show and Elmo really gets the little ones going loads of Sesame street fans love it yet this is a great show for preschoolers unlike Bob the Builder and Barney.
Sesame Street has got to be the best kids' show ever. Seriously. I grew up on this show and I still think it's pretty darned good. The muppets are wonderfully entertaining and are so cute and colorful! The skits are pretty educational for kids in that great way that they don't realize they're learning. I remember being absolutely in love with Sesame Street, and now, some mornings if I'm feeling down and don't have anything else to do I watch an episode of Sesame Street and think back to the time that everything was easier. To make a long story short, this is a show parents and kids could both enjoy together.
When I was a child, there were two main educational programs shown to children. Play School, being the other one, basically got me shouting at the television that I was not retarded, not stupid, and not a diminished human being, just a child. From what I've seen from observing some of my cousins' children, it hasn't changed a lot except parents have revised their opinion of its suitability for five year olds. Unfortunately, Sesame Street is going much in the same direction.
In the 1990s, Sesame Street had a rather nasty competitor in the shape of Barney, a purple dinosaur with a support cast that showed no difference in emotional response. Even when that support cast consisted of four year olds and fourteen year olds. As if that wasn't harmful enough, Barney would openly tell children they weren't good if they didn't have good feelings, or alter the rules of a game to make someone else the winner. That such "lessons" were allowed to be broadcast shows how useful the regulators of television really are. By contrast, the Sesame Street I remember even dealt with such issues as the death of a loved one. Goodbye, Mr. Hooper was one of the most amazing episodes of children's television ever broadcast because it made an effort to try and teach children about something so difficult that even live adults are often no help with it.
Other brilliant aspects of the show included using monsters to portray certain feelings or behaviours that the audience might be conflicted about. They had a cookie monster to show what a negative (but highly funny, the way they presented it) appearance gluttony can bring. They had a grouchy monster to show the effects of an anti-social mentality. More "cute" monsters such as Grover were used to show things like fear or sadness. There was a good reason for all of this. Negative feelings are difficult enough for a child to understand, so having puppets to thoroughly explain them was very educational.
Kudos are also due the adult cast of the show. During every episode I saw, even Goodbye, Mr. Hooper, the adults were never condescending or smug. They never acted as if they had every answer. Instead, they told the monster, other puppet, or child characters a few useful tidbits and let these characters work things out for themselves. Even today, if you see the sequences with such annoying characters as Elmo, it is the children or the child-like characters who deliver all the answer lines. Those consultations with child psychologists done by the Children's Television Workshop really paid off.
Unfortunately, and there always seems to be an unfortunately these days when it comes to children's television, a certain adherence to marketing over education crept in over recent years. The greatness of such characters as Oscar or Grover was that they could appeal to children without needing to be cutesy. Oscar was a grump who appeared to have worked too many night shifts, while Grover seemed to be just a fearful but friendly guy trying to make his way in the world. Perfectly normal, ordinary people wrapped up in some very bizarre-looking trimmings, in other words. Nowadays, characters like Elmo seem so awfully sugarcoated that it makes me wonder if his audience is going to encounter problems in later life when they learn they cannot get by simply on acting cute.
I don't know who pulls the strings on this show these days, but I would like to implore them for the sake of future generations. The old way of educating the children about the fundamentals of life, and letting the cute factor take care of itself, was a much better one. Please go back to it. I might not be part of the audience anymore, but I do have second cousins, and maybe one day a niece or nephew, who are.
I have loved this show as a kid when it is now passed onto from one generation to another as my nephews and nieces really loved or used to love this show. And no doubt when they are parents they will pass this onto their chldren. Great educational show and also very cute with characters and humans.
When I was little I used to love this programme. My favourite characters were Big Bird, Elmo and Ernie; I used to watch it all the time. It is one of my all time favourite childhood television shows. I can't remember what i liked about it but i just loved to watch it.
When I was four years old and in preschool, this show taught me how to count, taught me new letters, and I expanded my vocabulary before school. And it introduced me to some pop culture and musical people. I used to love the little segments, especially cookie monster, that guy was a trip. This show was entertaining for a four year old and makes it fun to learn. If your children are drooling in front of the television getting their braincells electrocuted by boobah, or whatever they call that laughable abomination of a show, sit them down and have them watch this to encourage actual learning and thinking instead of just sitting on their butts and watching a crappy show.
One of the best, if not the best, children\'s program. I like many grew up watching Sesame Street and I\'m thrilled to see the newest generations are still watching. I am curious about one: why isn\'t Caroll Spinney mentioned in the cast and crew? He has been Big Bird for over thirty years (from the very beginning actually). You\'d like a Living Legend would be recognize for his contribution in the cast list.
This show teaches a lot of stuff to your children. The alphabet, numbers, even life lessons(look at Bert and Ernie, Oscar, Elmo and think). People shouldn\'t badmouth this show. When they have kids, this will be the only show that can make them not run and scream. This is an icon for people. Celebrities have warm memories about Sesame Street. It\'s even good enough to have Elmo(inexplicably) at Congress a few years ago. Remember, when you\'re kids need to be educated before preschool, let them watch this. This is Jim Henson\'s gift to children. May his creations live on. Not in Disney\'s hands.
Well I think Sesame Street is an excellent kids show.
Whatever Children\'s Television Workshop is doing, keep it help. I think is one of the only moral show out today. I believe Bush should be immpeached for cutting back funds for public television. Nickelodeon shows doesn\'t have any life moral, but Sesame Street stresses the point that evryone is unique in their own special way. Also, It was one of the only kids shows that put out the point that segregration is bad and that we can all be friends. So for all of the people who hate Sesame Street, think about your family member out taking drug or in jail or dead
A personal favorite for me when I was a kid. And I still love it. And I'm about to be in the 7th grade. It's great for children 3+. I highly recommend it to everybody. kgjk kgodgk kok o ko ko ko ko ko k ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ok o ko ko ko k ok ok ok o ko koj o o jo jop ko ko ko ko l pl o oj oj o jo o jo jo jo
This is the best kids show period! It revolves around these muppets that live on seseme street. Big Bird is a big yellow bird who is lucky because he doesn't have bird flu!
Erney lives with his brother Bert (my old favorite charicter) Erney always had his favorite toy rubber ducky and Bert was always sceptical twords Erney.All the villagers of Seaseme Street are luvable especialy Elmo! Everyone's favorite villager and is probably the most popular charicter!!!
Oh I used to watch the show when I was little now I see it now and then when I flip the channel and Elmo OMG he's so adorable I saw him on rove live man he cracks me up and it showed the person who talked for him as well it made me love him even more.
Sesame Street boy it's a great learning show for little kids. When I was little I used to watch it wasn't my favourite but only recently elmo has came on well not that recently and started up elmos world oh he's so cute he was on rove live and he's so adorable and funny the man who talk's for him. But I don't think we get it on T.V anymore I ain't sure cause I'vr never looked to see it I haven't seen it in ages. I also love the Cookie monster he's quite funny to. Nah but elmo really made the show alot better. You gotta admitt it get's pretty boring at times when I was little it wouldn't always interest but man you gotta love Sesame Street!
Sesame Street is still awesome after being around for almost 40 years. I still watch this show, mostly because I don't have cable anymore, but I've grown to love this show with my favorite character being Big Bird, I admire this show for the education and the comedy, but mostly the comedy. This is tight and it always will be in my eyes at least. Anyways, this is my second favorite children's show compared to Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends, and one more thing, this show will live for milleniums, just like Thomas the Tank Engine.
This Show is a Classic, It has been Since 1969. This has to be the king of kid's shows, this has Funny Charetars and It makes learning fun. I think this show should go for Many More years, and not get canceled for at least another 20. Big Bird, Grover, Snuffy, Burt, Ernie, Elmo ETC. are all good guys. But still, this show has dealt with a lot of issues, It's very funny, cute & it Desevers 10.10 for 40 Years of just that. Thank You Jim Henson!
Sesame Street is an excellent show for little kids. I really enjoyed watching this show as a little boy and sometimes Ill still watch it if nothing else is on to reflect on how much I used to love it. My favorite part of Sesame Street is all the weird music videos that little kids can sing along and dance too. My favorite character on sesame street was big bird because he was funny. My new favorite sketch is Elmo's World. It has a catchy tune that I think is fabulous and its really catchy for kids.
High School, College and fear of utter social embarrassment has done nothing to help me kick this habit, in fact I’ve found people older than me that sing Sesame Street jingles Word of Word without a thought!
Growing up this was one staple of my TV diet - everyday as I rushed home from school this was what my little mind was occupied with. Sesame Street never went out of fashion for me - although I must admit things have changed and I’m not too in love with the current format. (Elmo seems to be the Donald Trump of Sesame Street.)
Back in yester year - Sesame Street had a bit of everything for everybody, for kids and their bored/trapped parents watching. It had luster and style and wasn’t like the brain rotting Kid’s programmes of today…Honestly I would feel INSULTED if my parent made me watch some of the drivel on TV.
Like a good friend who never left, Sesame Street has taken on new dimensions and although its face has changed – you can still see the embers of the ‘good old days’. It seems all those geniuses of my youth have passed on or just plain retired.
