This makes my heart SO happy!

I think my earliest memory ever was watching the first episode of Sesame Street. I was sick in bed but my Mom said I could come out in the living room and watch this new show that was coming on. Keep in mind, my sweet little young people, this was before the days of cable. We had 4 channels to choose from so a show for kids was a BIG deal!

I sat about 8 inches from the TV (how many remember doing this until we learned we would ruin our eyesight?) at was mesmerized at this new world. I don’t remember a lot about it (I was only 2 years old) but I remember Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster. I remember the steps the kids sat on. I THINK I remember Susan too. It’s a pretty faint memory.

I continued to watch Sesame Street from that day on. I probably watched it longer than a kid should but hey, there wasn’t anything else on. I love that 50 years later this wonderful show continues to educate and entertain children everywhere. Congratulations Children’s Television Workshop! May you continue to share for another 50 years!
