Happy 40th, Sesame Street!

Sesame Street is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and how could we at Geek Force Five, having grown up on the show, not dedicate at least one of today’s five stories to this happy occasion? That’s right: we couldn’t. So, here you go!

Google is celebrating by changing up there logo, as noticed by The Huffington Post here; a new season is starting on November 10 (according to the Street’s own Website); and YouTube has a playlist of 22 classic songs for you to check out, including the one I’ve embedded above of my favorite character, Cookie Monster, singing his signature song.

What’s your favorite Sesame Street memory, either as a kid or as a parent?
