Sesame Street - Not Just for TV Anymore

Filed under: In The News

For six months straight, we watched only the last 10 minutes of Sesame Street every day. (Parents of Elmo fans will know why.) Now, after 39 years of airing on PBC channels, Elmo and friends are jumping off the TV screen and into the world wide web, where kids can watch them whenever they want.

Big Bird and the gang will now have their own channel on YouTube, and Hulu will show popular segments, including those with celebrity guest stars. And if you simply must have the whole episode, they'll be available on iTunes for $1.99.

Interestingly, this isn't just happening because kids are becoming more technologically savvy. After all, how many two-year-olds do you know with their own iPod? There's also the nostalgia factor; adults want to revisit Sesame Street too. In fact, the episode where Big Bird finds out Mr. Hooper has died is one of the most popular still today. Watch it below.

Will being on the Internet change the way your little one watches Sesame Street?
