On November 10, 1969, “Sesame Street,” a pioneering TV
show that would teach generations of young children the
alphabet and how to count, made its broadcast debut.

The show is produced by Sesame Workshop (known as the
Children’s Television Workshop (CTW) until June 2000) and
was created by Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett (below).

As of 2018, Sesame Street has won 189 Emmy Awards and 
13 Grammy Awards, more than any other children’s show.
