Consider this your daily reminder, courtesy of an old school Sesame Street clip!

I grew up a Sesame Street junkie, and this song was always one of my favorites. The empowering message resonated with me at an early age — “just look around you, it’s easy to see. There’s NOTHING we women can’t be!”

This year, Sesame Street celebrates 40 years of excellence, and according to that Newsweek article in the previous link, it’s ranked #15 in popularity of the children’s shows on air. That’s terrible news and I blame Elmo. Just kidding (I’m a Grover stan, for the record)!

It’s true, the Sesame Street nowadays isn’t quite the show I grew up on. But it’s still awesome and the messages of inclusion, equality, and respect remain. And for classic Sesame Street fans of my generation, all isn’t lost. You can get
Sesame Street – Old School, Vol. 1 (1969-1974) and Sesame Street: Vol. 2 – Old School (1974-1979). Your kids will LOVE it. And so will you!

When I was little, I use to rock my two Sesame Street albums. I must have drove my mom nuts. My favorite song was The skin I'm in.

Sesame Street and The Muppet Show were my two favorite shows growing up. My favorites on Sesame Street were Big Bird and Cookie Monster. I will definitely be treating myself to these DVD's...just as I have the First Seasons of the Muppet Show on DVD.

Boo for Elmo! I agree ladies, Sesame Street is not the same as it was back in the day. I'm an 80s baby, and I *adored* this show as a kid. Glad its still around!

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
