Happy 40th, Sesame Street!

We grew up on Sesame Street, and still very much enjoy all the characters, love, and education Sesame Street puts out there for this new generation of Wii-kids.

These characters have become known world-wide, and even started its own channel in India, called Galli Galli Sim Sim.

Yet, Sesame Street – Australia was the first one to add an Indian character to its show only just this year!  “[Nitya] Vidyasagar plays the character of Leela, an Indian woman who runs a new laundromat next to Hooper’s store. Leela’s culture and heritage comes alive on Sesame Street, helped by a whole lot of singing and dancing, of course.” (VillageVoice-Balmain)
