Believe it or not, Sesame Street first aired exactly 46 years ago today on November 10, 1969. The show played such a large role in so many of our early years, but how much do you really know (or remember) about it?
In honor of their birthday, I decided to sit down and dig up a few tidbits you may not have known about Sesame Street. I hope you enjoy!
2. Cookie Monster wasn't created for Sesame Street. He first appeared
a few years earlier in a cracker commercial.
6. "Rubber Duckie" as performed by Ernie, climbed to #16
on the Billboard singles chart in 1970.
8. Mr. Hooper's first name was Harold
. He (actor Will Lee) died 33 years ago
actually appeared in Season 1 of Sesame Street.
