Sesame Street was created in 1969 with the goal of educating young learners and pre-school children through the new media of television in mind. Within the space of just a few years, millions of American children were tuning in every day to watch their favorite muppet characters and learning literacy, numeracy, phonics and language as never before. The quality of pre-school learning leapt up because of Sesame Street.
Through the creative genius of Jim Henson, Sesame Street, with its many different muppet characters, touched the lives of millions of children around the world and is still going strong nearly 50 years on. Sesame Street has won eight Grammy awards and over 100 Emmy’s, which is more than any other children’s television show in history.
