Trivia

Many early collaborators had previously worked on Captain Kangaroo (1955), including writer and composer Jeff Moss, producer Sam Gibbon, executive producer Dave Connell, and writer Jon Stone. See more »

Goofs

Bert and Ernie's apartment is clearly a sub-basement apartment in the 123 Sesame Street building, but often when looking out a window from inside the apartment, it looks as if it is on the first floor (i.e. the half-walls seen in front of the windows when outside the building aren't there, and when people are at the window, they're standing straight up, not crouched over as one would expect).

Quotes

Crazy Credits

Sesame Street!
8 August 2004 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

I always caught this show on television every now and then. The show was put together and written well and the people that was on show was good. I am surprised that this show has aired in TV for such and great length of time. Sesame Street was/is one of the most watched by the youngsters. The show would have like little teachings for them in various formats for them such as animated and such. There is some funny stuff on this show with Oscar, The Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie. I would only recommend this television show to young kids unless the adults are interested in seeing the actors and the hilarious characters or if you want watch something you haven't seen as young boy or girl then this can bring memories back from the past make you feel like your a kid again. If that is the case then I recommend you watch this show!
