Why Sesame Street is on TV

Since PBS shows Children's television, you may have seen the wonderful world of why Sesame Street. Since 1970 it has been providing educational and entertaining shows for children of all ages. Children love to watch this show because it involves both the human and the animals in our lives. It introduces us to a new and unique perspective on how we should live our lives. We have all watched animals doing everyday things like running around and playing in the street, and then some funny stuff happens, and they have to do a little bit of homework or work with other children to complete their assignments.

We know that children can learn without any help through observation, but you can see that there is something more going on beneath the surface than what meets the eye. In this show, we find out that certain things will happen when certain people are placed in a certain position. We all know that animals work similarly when placed in different positions. It is just that humans are a little more distracted sometimes.

You might have noticed in the past that on Why Sesame Street, the people on the streets are those from the poor, the uneducated, the outcasts, and the otherwise uneducated. It is no secret that children are drawn to these kinds of people. The streets are filled with vagrants, criminals, drug addicts, alcoholics, and poverty-stricken people. This was before we even had jobs. All the people on the streets had to learn the value of a dollar and how hard they worked to earn one.

There is an adorable baby doll on Why Sesame Street called Miss Piggy. When her dad told her to say "hooray" when she sees people having a good time, she asked him why. He explained that they were having a good time because they shared what they learned on Why Sesame Street with others. Miss Piggy lived on the streets with her family, and all of them had learned to share. She shared by being so clean, so neat, and so happy.

We know today that isn't necessarily so. A large percentage of the poor worldwide live below what would be considered a decent standard of living. They are malnourished, illiterate, and poor in health. They can barely afford food and shelter. They barely have time for themselves.

The streets are not representative of the whole world. It represents a world segment that has experienced tremendous economic and social development over the last century. The average income among the poorest segments of the world's population is less than two-hundred dollars a day. Those are the lucky ones.

The Why Street characters help us understand what it takes to be a good person in this world. They help children to understand that although there are differences, there are also similarities. That it is not bad to be greedy and mean and take advantage of others, but it is also good to be kind, generous, and empathetic.

In the United States, Why Street is helping many people. Each year, thousands of children join up at the centers and schools and learn what it takes to make the American dream come true. So while you may think that Why Street is just a silly cartoon on television, you might be surprised at how much it actually helps young minds across the country.

What are some of the subjects taught in why street? A few weeks ago, I happened to watch one of the episodes in its third season. I was very impressed with the way it introduced the language skills. It made it very easy for me to understand the words "put" and "get."

In the next episode, a new character named Ms. Gomez tries to join Why Street to gain employment. One of the reasons why she is denied is because her parents are drug addicts. In the first episode, her parents tried to sell her drugs. Ms. Gomez had been through that before and understood how painful it is to be rejected and branded a drug addict. That experience made her want to work hard to get off the streets and be a productive member of society.

Why Sesame Street is more than just a silly cartoon. It allows kids to learn about life, love, and friendship in a safe and supportive environment. I think it is great that all the episodes are free on YouTube. There is no reason not to watch why this great show is on television.
