From humble beginnings in 1969, Sesame Street will spend 2019 celebrating its 50th Season.
It all began in 1969 on a street where colorful Muppets and humans lived -- and learned -- side by side. Today, 50 years later, we are excited to announce a yearlong anniversary celebration to mark the occasion!

In a statement from Sesame Workshop (the nonprofit educational organisation behind Sesame Street) it was announced that a yearlong anniversary celebration will occur to mark the special occasion.
"Throughout 2019, Sesame Workshop will bring people together around the timeless lessons that Sesame Street has always taught: everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from, is equally deserving of respect, opportunity—and joy.” (Sesame Workshop)
