The New York Times takes a look back at the original Sesame Streetin this article.
The old “Sesame Street” is not for the faint of heart, and certainly not for softies born since 1998, when the chipper “Elmo’s World” started. Anyone who considers bull markets normal, extracurricular activities sacrosanct and New York a tidy, governable place — well, the original “Sesame Street” might hurt your feelings.
My girls watch this show all the time and, ocassionally, just occasionally, an old spot will come back on and I'll have a brief Sesame Street flashback. Good times.
