About us

A colorful community of monsters, birds, grouches, and humans. A place where everyone counts.

In 1969, Sesame Workshop’s founders asked a single bold question. Could television—then an emerging technology—be used to educate kids? With a diverse cast, a research-based curriculum, and some instantly-iconic characters, Sesame Street sought to answer that question—and it changed children’s television forever and became a longtime favorite for children and adults and staple of PBS Kids.
