Sesame Street turns 40 tomorrow, which you already knew because it's been in the news for months (last March's viral clip of Elmo and Ricky Gervais discussing necrophilia was a 40th anniversary promo) and inescapable for the past week. Needless to say, I was a huge fan back in the day but the news doesn't blow my mind quite the way it should as, to me, Sesame Street has simply always existed. What does blow my mind is that there are adults who feel the same way about The Simpsons.

Also, wasn't one of the revolutionary things about Sesame Street the inner city setting? So why does the original opening appear to have been shot on a farm?
