Happy 40th Anniversary, Sesame Street
If you've done just one Google search in the last week or so, you've seen Cookie Monster or Grover or Bert & Ernie gracing the the search engine logo and know that this week marks the 40th anniversary of the iconic children's show Sesame Street.
One of the many great things about the show is its characters' celebration of (or obsession with) food. What may not be as clear to the casual five-year-old viewer as to the nostalgic adult fan is that the show just billows with food references, from Cookie Monster's obvious affinity to Grover's frustrating work as a waiter to the Amazing Mumford's "A la peanut butter sandwiches!"
To honor the show's milestone and to have an excuse to go through some hilarious old clips, we've put together some of our favorite food-related skits:
This is hysterical. Love how M.Stew arches and tilts her body ever so slightly out of Cookie Monster's flailing grasp and uses her teacher voice on him, telling him he's "a little bid rude," as if it would make any difference.
