Can You Tell Me How To Get.....

It clearly is a good year to turn 40. Not only yours truly but total is the turn of PBS educational staple from the Children's Television Workshop. Just hope Cookie Monster doesn't eat all our online cookies to mark the day.

Anyway Happy Birthday Sesame Street and by way of celebration how about a classic 1970's opening title.

My nickname in one of the civil service jobs I did was after this guy. Can't see the reason myself.

I also remember this tune, animation and how to count to 12 in this way.

This blog post was brought to you by the letters H and B and the number 40.

There is a fascinating section in "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell which explains just how clever the people behind the Children's Television Workshop were regarding Sesame Street and how they tested and tested it in front of groups of kids using sophisticated techniques in order to hone the format. I think it's one of the reasons it has lasted 40 years.
