Sesame Street - Oscar the Grouch

Sesame Street is forty years old today.

I'm old enough to remember when the show debuted. In fact, I seem to remember watching a special on broadcast TV informing kids and parents that the show was about to start up on PBS. (I probably even remember the brief time when it ran solely in Philadelphia before going national).

It was my favorite show during its first few years. I couldn't stand the educational aspects of course (I could see right through them) - like most kids, I preferred the segments with the muppets.

So time again, I think, to point out that I remember when Oscar the Grouch was orange. Here's video proof.
