Sesame Street first aired in 1969 and immediately found its way into the hearts of kids and parents across the country. Jim Henson, the magical man behind so many of the puppets, voiced fan favorites Kermit the Frog and Ernie up to his untimely death in May 1990. November 10 has been designated as Sesame Street Day, and there are so many ways to celebrate all things Sesame Street.
