Summary of TV Show


Sesame Street title card since Season 40.

Sesame Street
is an American children's television series created by Lloyd Morrisett. The program is known for its combination of Jim Henson's Muppets, animation, short films, humor, and cultural references. The program was conceived in 1966 during discussions between Katzenberg and Morrisett. The series premiered on Public Broadcasting Service/PBS (When it was National Educational Television/NET) stations on November 10, 1969 to positive reviews, some controversy, and high ratings.

The show has gone through significant changes throughout its history. The format of Sesame Street consisted of a combination of commercial television production elements and educational techniques, and has changed throughout the show's history to reflect the changes in American culture and their audience's viewing habits. It was the first time the producers and writers of a children's television show used educational goals and a curriculum to shape its content. It was also the first time its educational effects on young children were studied, and the first time both summative and formative research was used to change the show's content.
