The Best of Sesame Street

Decades after the show premiered, kids are still falling in love with Elmo, Big Bird, and all of the characters who live on Sesame Street. And parents love it too. It set the standard for high-quality, easily accessible, educational entertainment for kids. The characters, songs, and stories have expanded from TV into books, apps, games, movies and more, inspiring kids to learn in every format. We've gathered together some of our favorite Sesame Street media in honor of their 50th anniversary. That's 50 years of ABC's, 123's, and great character-building lessons for kids all over the world.
