Über Sesame Street
The greatest invention of human recorded history was not the wheel or the automobile or the airplane or the telephone. No, the greatest invention of all time was the Children's Television Workshop. It was these fine people as well as the late, great Jim Henson who brought Sesame Street to small children all over the world. Not only did this amazing children's show involve various foam-based creatures teaching children the rudimentary foundations of reading, writing and arithmeticit brought (and continues to bring) good music to the table. Have you ever heard Johnny Cash sing "Nasty Dan" with Oscar the Grouch? Have you disco danced to "Sesame Street Fever," complete with a "Rubber Ducky Techno Remix?" Even squeaky little Elmo has something to sing about using his imagination. Whether you have kids of your own or you're getting in touch with your inner child, Sesame Street will always remain a wonderful place to come back and visit again and again.
