It all began in 1969 on a street where colorful Muppets and humans lived -- and learned -- side by side. Sesame Street was created to answer a simple question: could television be used to level the playing field and help prepare less advantaged children for school? Ever since, Sesame Street has helped children around the world to learn, feel included and respect others.
