Since the 1960's Sesame Street has been education and entertaining children. I know I have fond memories of those puppets. Learning with the Count, watching Cookie Monster beg for COOKIES, Grover teaching me near and far. But do you really know what a fantastic company Sesame Street really is? I know they were pretty neat but did not know how great they actually were until Niel and I watched the The World According To Sesame Street. The movie is about Sesame Street producing different versions of the show in various countries. Each country has puppets which reflect the culture of the nation. The movie shows the challenges Sesame Workshop(the parent company) faced with in introducing Sesame Street to various countires. In particular Kosovo and Bangladesh. However it also showed the hope that the Sesame Street will bring to thousands of children. It was a very moving film.
