Sesame Street was invented by TV producer Joan Ganz Cooney and psychologist Lloyd Morrisett. The completely new and revolutionary concept was to use television as an educational tool and to prepare children, especially from low-income families, for school and life.
The muppets of American Sesame Street and German Sesame Street are now depicted on German postage stamps: Ernie, who lives with his best friend Bert in the basement of house Sesamstraße 123. Elmo, the furry red monster with an orange nose, is also a very popular figure. His contagious laugh and good mood have won generations of preschoolers. The cookie monster with the blue fur and the rolling googly eyes loves chocolate biscuits, but eats almost everything else. Samson, the good-natured bear, loves his comforter, sausages and roasted almonds. He likes to lie in his hammock or dance. Samson’s best friend is Tiffy. She collects snow globes and likes to repair alarm clocks.
