What is Sesame Street?

Sesame Street Sesame Street is a children's television show. Some of the characters are: Elmo Monster Telly Monster Zoe Monster Oscar The Grouch Slimey Worm Glo Worm --------------------------------------------------------------- Answer2 Sesame Street who got its start on November 10th 1969 and it was a program created to give kids of way of learning their ABCs and 123s with a bit of an Urban flair and also address cultural issues and differences. If you go back and see the old Sesame Street its almost representative of the cultural revolution that now is so common today. The show was filmed primarily in Manhattan and parts of Queens and derived the name "Sesame Street." Though many people recognize Jim Henson as a household name still many do not know that Jim Henson was the backbone of Sesame Street because he created alot of the puppets in the show. One creation of his commonly known is Kermit the Frog who played the Weatherman many times getting blown away by a strong storm wind. The other muppets made appearances quite regularly but Jim Henson created the Muppet Show, another hit, not long after. My favorite character being GROVER who plays the waiter that is totally oblivious to the needs of his customers and is always making mistakes. He also plays Super Grover who likes making crash landings. Sesame Street still comes on TV but it is a mix of clips from the much older shows and the newer ones, new characters being "Gabby" "Panwapa" "Zoey" The oldest shows are on DVD called "Old School Sesame Street" for about $24 dollars. --------------------------------------------------------------- Answer3 Elmo is the star(pritty much) Oscar The Grouch lives in a trash can i was glo worm for Halloween Big Bird is awesome snuffalufigus (snuff-a-luf-a-gus) is Big Birds bestest friend ever =)
