Sesame Street
Sesame Street is an American educational children's television series and a pioneer of the contemporary educational television standard, combining both education and entertainment. Sesame Street is well known for its Muppets characters created by Jim Henson. It premiered on November 10, 1969, and is the longest running children's program on television.[citation needed] The show is produced in the United States by the non-profit organization Sesame Workshop, formerly known as the Children's Television Workshop (CTW), founded by Joan Ganz Cooney and Ralph Rogers.

As a result of its extensive influence, Sesame Street is one of the most highly regarded, and most watched, educational shows for children in the world.[2] The original series has been televised in more than 120 countries, and 25 independent versions have been produced.[3] The show has been called "perhaps the most vigorously researched, vetted, and fretted-over program".[4] As of 2009, the series has received 118 Emmy Awards, more than any other television series.[5] An estimated 77 million Americans watched the series as children.[6]

Sesame Street uses a combination of animation, puppets, and live actors to stimulate young children's minds, improve their letter and word recognition, basic arithmetic, geometric forms, classification, simple problem solving, and socialization by showing children or people in their everyday lives. Since the show's inception, other instructional goals have been basic life skills, such as how to cross the street safely, proper hygiene, healthy eating habits, and social skills; in addition, real-world situations are taught, such as death, divorce, pregnancy and birth, adoption, and even all of the human emotions such as happiness, love, anger, and hatred.

The series has made many published lists, including greatest all-time show compilations by TV Guide[7] and Entertainment Weekly.[citation needed] A 1996 survey found that 95% of American preschoolers have watched the show by the time they are three years old.[8]

On November 10, 2009, Sesame Street will celebrate its 40th anniversary and will include a segment with First Lady Michelle Obama interacting with the Muppets
