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

Possibly the only topic that has never been dealt with on the show is divorce. The producers tried in 1991 with an episode titled "Snuffy's Parents Get a Divorce". In the episode, Snuffy's parents are shown arguing and his sister, Alice, is shown reacting by hitting her teddy bear. The script was reviewed by child psychologists who suggested an emphasis on telling children that if their parents get divorced, their parents will still love them and the divorce is not their fault. The episode was tested on children in daycare centers. But the children came away with those same negative messages. The episode was never aired. In another 1991 episode, Kermit the Frog interviews a bird who sings about how her parents still love her even though they no longer live together though it is not directly stated that her parents are divorced.

Earlier skits with the yip-yip martians have them consulting an "Earth book" to learn about different things they discover on Earth. Yet a later skit has them discovering a book for the first time and trying to figure out what you do with a book. See more »

What ho! Bring me my royal pipe. And step on it.

At this point, you might think we'd go for the cheap joke. But we're not going to.

Most episodes aired from 1969 to the 2000s do not have complete closing credits; ending credits usually appeared at the end of the Friday installment, or when another weekday episode ran short. See more »
In 2006, selected episodes from the first five seasons of the series (1969-1973) were released to DVD. Due to rights issues regarding music and some footage, slight edits were made to these episodes, sometimes involving substituting other segments. In addition, the 5 complete episodes in the set (entitled Sesame Street: Old School Vol. 1) are each preceded by newly made animated segments introducing each episode. See more »
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!
