Everyone is getting ready for Christmas on Sesame Street! That means setting up the tree, hanging a stocking and singing some Christmas Carols. Generations of pre-schoolers worldwide have grown up with favourites Big Bird, Elmo, Bert and Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster and their many friends.
Ever since Sesame Street first aired on America’s national public television broadcaster in 1969, it has attracted a loyal and enthusiastic young audience. So popular was the show that it quickly made its international debut. When it hit the small screen in Australia, in 1971, Sesame Street was already showing in 50 countries; today, it can be seen in more than 150. So successful is this legend of children’s educational television that it has collected 164 Emmy Awards – more than any other children’s show – and eight Grammy Awards. Such accolades are enough to make even Abby Cadabby blush.
Conceived in 1966, Sesame Street was designed to use the power of media to educate and engage children. The Sesame Workshop used research-based content to arm young children with the social, literacy and numeracy skills that would ready them for school. Since its first episodes, generations of pre-schoolers worldwide have grown up with the endearing Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and their various friends. This delightful cast has both educated and entertained its viewers through humour, puppetry, music, animation, catchphrases and stories. While the format and some characters may have changed over the decades to reflect cultural and audience development, what hasn’t changed in this veritable institution is keeping the intellectual, emotional and social wellbeing of its young viewers front of mind.
The Sesame Street Christmas stamp pack features 20 x 65c Joy stamps from the Christmas 2016 stamp issue. Children of all ages will love the colourful Christmas-themed pictures of their favourite characters, throughout.
