“Seasame Street” turns 40!

Wow…I guess I’m not the only cool thing that turned 40 this year. Ha! Seriously though, the thought of “Sesame Street” being on the air for almost my entire lifetime does make me feel kinda crazy old. I mean, who knew it had been around that long? Yikes…

Anyway, happy 40th birthday to Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch — who apparently had orange fur in the first season! — Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, Grover, Guy Smilie, Elmo and all the rest of those bad-ass muppets. You guys made my childhood more awesome than you’ll ever know…

And now that we have a little one of our own in the house, you can bet she’ll get her fill of that iconic theme song on a daily basis too. We haven’t started Tivo-ing “Street” regularly yet, but we have watched some segments online, and, lemme tell ya, Greta is already hooked!

Que viva “La Calle de Sesame”!
