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.
We follow a family of bears, known as the Berenstain Bears, as they figure out life together. With friendly neighbors and close friends, the journey is never boring. Inspired by the book series written by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
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

Maybe we can invite Alex's father to visit us.
And we can built our toy cars together
I don't think so.
But why not?
Because, He is not around to do it
Did we do something wrong?
I don't know. Maybe we will find out.

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 »
Starting in 2002, the show's format was changed completely. A new opening was added and the old segments that did musical fun with numbers and words were practically all removed to make room for segments featuring The Count finding out the number of the day, Cookie Monster finding out the letter of the day, a Journey to Ernie game, and Monster Clubhouse.

This is a children's television classic. It's educational and entertaining, and not painful for parents to watch with their kids. At least it never used to be. It used to be quite edgy, high-brow, very adult-accessible. It's been dumbed down considerably over the years. This is a result of playing to lower age-groups, shorter attention spans, and competing with the run-of-the-mill trash in the kid's TV arena.
The adults have virtually vanished, the muppets have gotten annoying (I'm sure we're all familiar with Elmo by now), the show has shrunk to 40 minutes, the last 20 being a new show-within-a-show known as "Elmo's World". As if the 20 minutes of Elmo aren't enough, even more grating is that there are only about 10-20 episodes of Elmo's World, yet it runs every day! And rather than dealing with reading, writing, counting, nature, social skills, Elmo's World revolves around things like balls, puppies, hair, etc. Yes, this is not your parent's Sesame Street, or probably even the Sesame Street you grew up with. It's a more modern, simple, conformist Street that has considerably less charm but at least more educational value than the other, more commercial stuff out there.
The only reason to turn your kids on to television is rapidly shrinking into another Barney.
