Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet
Can you tell me how to get?
How to get to Sesame Street

Colourful doors painted for this event.

When Sesame Street first started, people were sceptical about its teaching method. Fast forward 50 years on, Sesame Street has tackled topics such as loss, racism, HIV positive issues, autism, etc explaining things in a lighter with easier language for its younger audience.

Come and play
Everything’s A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That’s where we meet
Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street

“Who are the people in your neighbourhood?”

The muppets of Jim Henson – Cookie Monster, Ernie, Bert, Kermit the Frog, the Count, Elmo, Big Bird, Mr Snuffleupagus, Oscar the Grouch and human characters Bob, Maria, Gordon and Gina are names that are way very familiar to us all.

It’s a magic carpet ride
Every door will open wide
To happy people like you
Happy people like
What a beautiful
Sunny Day…

  1. I wasn’t raised on Sesame Street (too old 🙂 and neither were our children. I love the characters, but Sesame Street seems to me to be the show that started the everything-short-and-loud phenomenon, which I think has contributed to short attention span. 🙂 Love the shots, though!

  2. You must have had such a great time there. The photos are fabulous, so colourful My children watched it in black and white until the mid ’80’s when our old TV set stopped working and we bought a new colour TV. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. 🙂
