As the show's seventh season begins, Mr. Snuffleupagus walks down the street, counting the people who fail to glimpse him (yet again). He counts ten in all. Later on, a journalist visits the street ...
Big Bird is sent to live far from Sesame Street by a pesky social worker. Unhappy, Big Bird runs away from his foster home, prompting the rest of the Sesame Street gang to go on a cross-country journey to find him.
The setting is in a small street in a city where children and furry puppet monsters learn about numbers, the alphabet and other pre-school subjects taught in commercial spots, songs and games.Written by

Oscar the Grouch was inspired by two people. His attitude comes from a nasty waiter that served Jim Henson and former Director Jon Stone at a restaurant called Oscar's Tavern in Manhattan. The voice was inspired by a cab driver that used to drive Caroll Spinney to the set every day during the first season. See more »
A skit involving The Fonz from Happy Days doing his usual "Ayyyyy!" towards the camera, and the letter "A" appearing below him, and him looking down at it. Later, the A was shifted to the left of him, but he still looks down. See more »
[Bert has reluctantly agreed to have Ernie give him a haircut... ]
Ernie. I'm bald.
Um... well, I wouldn't say that, Bert.
You wouldn't say that?
No, but it's true!
Well, I know it's true, I just wouldn't say it, Bert.
You cut all my hair off!
Yes, well, I 'm sorry about that...
But, but it will grow back again, you know...

The episodes that originally aired on a Friday somewhere between 1969 and 2000 had an additional message in the funding credits saying "Recorded at Reeves Teletape III" until 1987. Starting around the 18th season of the show, the message then said, "Facilities by Unitel Video, Inc." See more »
In 1970, an experimental edit of the show, entitled "This Way to Sesame Street", was briefly syndicated. It featured programs that were edited to include slightly different opening credits and paid commercials and was offered to commercial TV stations as a means of cashing in on the show's success. The project was scrapped after several weeks, and full effort was placed on the non-commercial version of the program. See more »
I am 23 years old and I grew up watching Sesame Street. I love this show. It's so very educational but it makes it fun. I was probably eight or nine when my mom finally corrected me and told me that the real words to the Beatles song I often sang were "Let It Be", not "Letter B".
I have so many fond memories of this show. Hats off to Sesame Street's 30th birthday and here's to 30 more. This is a show that I want my children to be able to grow up with as well. I applaud and thank the cast and crew for their dedication to children.
Oh yes, finally, I love Elmo & Grover & Telly Monster & Cookie Monster & Kermit the Frog & Snuffie, & Big Bird & Bert & Ernie& Harry & yes, even Oscar the Grouch.
Sunny Day, everythings A- OK. Friendly Neighbors. That's where we meet. Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street.
