In 1969, Sesame Street debuted and precipitated a revolution. This series showed that TV could be used as an effective and positive educational medium for children. The head start program that had been so successful in schools was now on television and not only reaching a general child audience but being especially effective in reaching poor and minority children
In 2009, Sesame Street celebrated its 40th birthday with the launch of its new season. Up to date, Sesame Street has won 138 Daytime Emmys, more than any other TV show in history.
