Trivia

In 1970, the show was banned in Mississippi in a three to two split vote by the State Commission for Educational Television, an anonymous committee member citing that the show uses a highly integrated cast, and that Mississippi was not yet ready for it. Twenty-two days later, the commission reversed its decision. See more »

Sesame Street!
8 August 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

I always caught this show on television every now and then. The show was put together and written well and the people that was on show was good. I am surprised that this show has aired in TV for such and great length of time. Sesame Street was/is one of the most watched by the youngsters. The show would have like little teachings for them in various formats for them such as animated and such. There is some funny stuff on this show with Oscar, The Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie. I would only recommend this television show to young kids unless the adults are interested in seeing the actors and the hilarious characters or if you want watch something you haven't seen as young boy or girl then this can bring memories back from the past make you feel like your a kid again. If that is the case then I recommend you watch this show!
