Celebrating Sesame Street’s 50th Anniversary

Sesame Street is celebrating 50 years of entertaining kids around the world on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 6 p.m. on Arizona PBS.

Celebrate the world’s most iconic street with all our furry friends and some very special guests including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Patti LaBelle, Sterling K. Brown, and many more! To mark the special event, the whole neighborhood comes together to take a photo under the Sesame Street sign—but the sign is missing! While Elmo and friends search for the sign, Joe takes a look back at 50 years of Sesame Street memories, and everyone soon realizes that Sesame Street isn’t just a sign or a street—it’s a place where everybody is welcome, learning is fun, and all kinds of monsters, birds, and humans come together to form lifelong friendships.
