My earliest years were formed by this show. No exaggeration. I could read before I started school because of Sesame Street (this show was actually an early form of pre-school). I can't imagine a childhood without Sesame Street. This, to me, was one of the most ground-breaking, innovative shows ever produced. No other children's television show has had the longevity that Sesame Street boasts. I'd forgotten about the old CTW logo at the top, which they used the first three years of the show. I'm sure there were other things about the earlier format of the show I've long since forgotten.
I hope this show never dies, and to all of its creators, contributors, writers, and actors, I would like to say thank you for making the world a better place.
