Sesame Street's 50th Anniversary Celebration


       This is a very special episode for the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street at 25 an 26 October 2019.

       Performers for the song ‘Put Down The Duckie’ are Ernie and Hoots the Owl with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Ernie would like to play the saxophone, but he has the Rubber Duckie in his hand so he produces only a squeak. Kids and people are dancing.

       Moderator Phill says that everything works in a harmony on Sesame Street but it doesn’t like seems to be harmonic at all. Phil makes interviews with Sesame Street residents and the guests. One guest says they have to hear what the duckie have to say, but another man says that duckie just squicks. Every Sesame resident makes another voice. Phill is overwhelmed, he has to go immediately.
