If you weren’t already feeling old

Yesterday I told you about Wallace and Gromit's 20th birthday. And I gave you a link to Google's UK home page.

In the comments folks seemed surprised that it had been 20 years since their first appearance. I was too to be honest. πŸ™‚

Well, Google now has another holiday logo up and this time it's Sesame Street's 40th anniversary :faint:

So yeah, I'm feeling kinda old.

Anyway, here's a classic moment I remember from (what I'm beginning to realise is a distant) childhood.

Another one, after my time, but I recall it being on the news when Joe Raposo's death was announced.

And finally, just because it was in the results when I searched for "Sesame Street Google"

Happy Birthday Sesame Street :hat: You may be 40, but you've never gotten old.
