Sesame Street 20 Years and Still Counting

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #78: Ethan!

Do know know that Sesame Street has been around for 20 years? I think it’s so amazing that they have been able to keep pretty much the same format, most of the same characters, and the same theme song for all these years. That just goes to show you that it was great entertainment back then and still is now.


sesameExperience this captivating special that marked the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking children’s series that taught us our ABCs, 123s, and so much more! Hosted by Bill Cosby, SESAME STREET: 20 YEARS…AND STILL COUNTING! includes appearances by favorite “Sesame Street” residents like Big Bird, Grover, Bob and Maria. It also features timeless clips from past episodes; performances by Ray Charles and famed tenor Plácido Domingo (with his operatic Muppetâ„¢ counterpart, Plácido Flamingo); and in-depth interviews with the series’ creators. Sweep the clouds away and rediscover the carefree days of childhood with this delightful special! “Sesame Street” is produced by the nonprofit educational organization, Sesame Workshop.


What child doesn’t know the Sesame Street Gang? My kids grew up with Big Bird, Oscar, Snuffy, and the rest of the characters and know pretty much every song by heart. Heck, even I still sing along to the familiar tunes. However, what always gets me is how does Maria manage to look so great after all these years?

What I really like about Sesame Street 20 Years and Still Counting is the way they’ve incorporated previous classic clips and performances by Superstars like Bill Cosby and Ray Charles which bring back so many wonderful childhood memories. I even remember some of the little kids on the show that must be adults with their own kids by now!

So if you want to share some classic Sesame Street moments with your family, check out 20 Years and Still Counting ($14.49). What a great way to bring generations together!

    Elmo. And this is weird because Sesame Street actually started in 1969 so that would make them 41 years old. Not 20!
