Old School Sesame Street Music Videos

I loved me some Sesame Street back in the day.

When my siblings and I were growing up, we were allowed very little TV time by our parental overlords.  And on those seemingly scarce occasions when we were actually granted permission to sit in front of "the tube" (as my dad called it), we were often interrupted by my parents (which, I now realize, was just them wanting to play with us). {Rough life, right?}

In addition to time limitations, our television restrictions also included content considerations (in other words, we didn't have cable and we watched a lot of PBS (Public Broadcasting). As a result, while other kids played "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "Power Rangers,"my household playmates and I reenacted the Underground Railroad and built extensive, miniature cities entirely from shoeboxes, popsicle sticks, string and glue. All in all - a fascinating childhood. But enough about that.

This post is dedicated to some of my favorite old-school Sesame Street music videos. Honestly, some of these still get stuck in my head on a rather consistent basis.

In the words of Cookie Monster, "me love it!"
