The “Sesame Street” gang are celebrating their 50th anniversary in a special way.
The Count, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and the rest of the muppet crew stopped by the NPR studios for a brand new Tiny Desk concert performance.
After Count and Cookie introduced the group, Elmo and Rosita launched into their theme song, “The Sesame Street Theme (Sunny Days)”.
Later, viewers get a taste of “People In Your Neighborhood” with special guests, NPR’s Bob Boilen and Neda Ulaby nailing their own verses.
Other “Sesame Street” classics like “What I Am”, “Sing After Me” and “Sing” were also performed.
“Sesame Street” is honouring their milestone year with a number of celebrations. Most recently, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal renamed the intersection of West 63rd Street and Broadway to “Sesame Street” permanently.
