Sesame street celebrating 40 years-Chamki spreading literacy

Google Doodle is today celebrating 40th Anniversary with the Muppet character logo. Sesame Street, an American Children’s TV Series, was launched on November 10, 1969. It is the longest running children’s program on US television. Sesame Street broadcasts in over 120 countries and 8 million viewers on 350 stations throughout the world.

The show celebrates its 40th birthday on November 10, 2009, the exact day the series debuted on TV four decades ago. US first lady Michelle Obama will appear on the Children’s TV show “Sesame Street” on the November 10th episode, to ostensibly kick off its 40th anniversary season. A section on the show will be telecasted to encourage children to adopt healthy eating habits and even plant vegetables in the garden.

Original songs, story lines and animations such as “Murray Had a Little Lamb,” “Word on the Street” and “Elmo’s World” will continue to stimulate the preschool viewers’ awareness and excitement about the environment. Additionally, new words will be introduced at the beginning of each episode by Murray as he interacts with people on the street. In a series of 26 hilarious celebrity segments, words such as “habitat,” “metamorphosis,” “camouflage,” “hibernate” and “garden” are introduced to enhance vocabulary and further highlight the wonders of nature.

As you highlight in your post the program must have helped countless children around the world learn a number of basic skills even if they have limted access to normal eductional methods of teachning.

It really is a wonderful celibration and I bet the show had quite a bithday party.
