When I was a little kid, Sesame Street was my FAVORITE show! I was a 1st Grader in Columbia, South Carolina in 1969 when the show started. It came on in the evening, right after dinner, on the local "Educational TV Station." My dad was the type of guy who cared enough to shelter us from dumb TV, so he'd type up a list of shows we could watch. Honestly, I don't remember watching any TV before Sesame Street started.
Anyway, when I first met Cookie Monster, I fell in love.
