Google images are often fun and interesting and our Google friends have been going all out this week for the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. I finally decided to check it out and spent way too much time on the Sesame Street Web site today. What I found was some pretty funny stuff. I think I could fit right in with the people behind the scenes there. While it has always been a good show for kids, you can tell they’ve put some fun stuff in there for us adults. too.

If you go to their site you can find some videos of some bad singing but also some that are called Sesame Spoofs. They spoof Mad Men, 30 Rock, and other famous shows. I finally had to get off the site. The bright colors that are specifically geared toward little kids were making me dizzy. But I clicked back to the Cookie Monster videos one more time because he’s my favorite—even though the producers sold out to the masses and had him start eating vegetables. Visit the site and click on the video that has him singing about losing his cookie in a disco. Good stuff from the old days!

And finally, after reading the lyrics for the theme song, I think I now know why I grew up to be an optimist. I want to move back to this place. I’d even put up with the Big Bird doo doo in the streets. The lyrics are below. Happy Anniversary Sesame Street!

Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play
Everything’s A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That’s where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street

It’s a magic carpet ride
Every door will open wide
To happy people like you–
Happy people like
What a beautiful

Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street…

How to get to Sesame Street

How to get to…
