Look who will turn 40?

Did you happen to see Google’s home page yesterday?  I thought it was quite cute the legs of Big Bird replaced the “L” in the word Google. Google has always amazed me with their creativity and why not, this  is what they are about, being creative and cutting edge.

Big Bird

I thought to myself something must be going on.  On November 10th ,2009 Sesame Street will be 40 years old what a history. Wow, that is a long time for a educational TV show to be airing. Talk about content and keeping up with the times.  Content is a subject bloggers  are faced with in every blog, good content.

Executive Producer Carol-Lynn Parente state, “When you turn on your TV on November 10,  “You’ll see a brand-new and spectacularly beautiful opening sequence. We’re also launching an entirely new format for the show — the magazine format of Sesame Street, which has been evolving over the years, has been officially replaced with what we’re calling a ‘block’ format. And it’s just wonderful.”

I remember watching Sesame Street as a kid. Ugh, I drastically dislikedOscar, the grouch Oscar the grouch in his trash can throwing trash everywhere. Even with that it made me aware of many things green, lol! I always thought that Big Bird was just to big for me but gave him his props. Elmo has been a big hit with the kids. I remember the toy Tickle Me Elmo drove me nuts but the kids loved em and the toy wasn’t aimed at adults although I know a few adults that bought the toy for themselves, hmmm. He brought out the child in many!

Ernie and Bert, what pals, and of course we can’t forget Cookie Monster that blue fella. Who couldn’t love him eating chocolate chip cookies and throwing around everywhere. Brings back childhood memories.

Google hasn’t forgotten him either while using his big eyes to represent the “O’s” in the world Google for today’s home page. I love it. I suppose that everyday up to Sesame Streets anniversary on the 10th we will see some creative endeavor by Google to represent this auspicious occasion.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be airing on the show on the 10th. I think I’ll turn in for the birthday celebration. Come join me and sing along.

WTG Google! Congratulations Sesame Street!
