Today’s Google Doodle: Sesame Street MuppetsCategory: Computers
On November 10, 1969, the TV show Sesame Street had its premiere episode. Fast forward to today, the show is still going strong and is in fact celebrating its 40th year of providing fun and entertainment to children all over the world.
To honor the longest running children’s program on US television, Google brought together its ensemble of Muppets at their homepage as a doodle.
This is the culmination of the week-long series of doodles featuring Sesame Street characters by Google.
Hmm, I wonder why Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are not around.
Thanks to Google for this series. It really was fun!
Happy 40th Anniversary Sesame Street!
NOTE: Here in the Philippines, a local version of Sesame Street was made in 1984 which lasted until 1997. It was named “Batibot”. It made a brief comeback in 1998 but tough competition from foreign channels like Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon as well as from local morning TV programs ultimately contributed to its demise.
It introduced Filipinos to characters like Pong Pagong and Kiko Matsing.
