Top 10 Celebrity Guests on Sesame Street

by  |  January 22nd, 2012  |  Blog  |  1 Comment

As a life long fan of the long running educational show Sesame Street, I have been wanting to put this list together for sometime. Sesame Street, featuring Jim Henson’s Muppet’s, started in 1969.

This landmark show has become a historical chronicle of our times, preserving Pop Culture and Arts and Science like no other.

As a child, I watched some of the guests listed below. And now as a parent, I continue to watch some of the guests below with my 2 year old son.

I define art as: a perfect moment preserved in time, whether it is the artist himself performing at his perfect best or it is the art itself that is perfect once created, a perfect moment is preserved.

I now give you the art of Sesame Street

10. Destinys Child – A New Way To Walk

 

9. Seth Rogen – Embarrassed

 

8. Ben Stiller – Who Are The People In Your Neighborhood

 

7.  Katy Perry – Dress Up

 

6. Jason Mraz – Outdoors

 

5. Adam Sandler – A Song About Elmo

 

4. Stevie Wonder – Jams with Grover

 

3. Robert De Niro – Discusses acting with Elmo

 

2. Christopher Reeves – Talking about his accident

 

1. Michael Jackson – In 1985, after taking the advice of his good buddy Paul McCartney; who told Jackson he should, “Invest in music”, Michael Jackson bought the Publishing Rights to the music of McCartney‘s former band The Beatles

In 1990, Sesame Street was sued for five-and-a-half million dollars over the song “Letter B” a parody of a Beatles’ song “Let It Be.” The plaintiffs were not the Beatles (who by that time no longer owned the rights to their original song and who in fact wrote an affidavit in support of the parody) but Michael Jackson’s music library, which had bought the Beatles catalog.

    Sesame Street was sued by Northern Songs before Jackson bought the company. When MJ bought the company in 1985 the suit was immediately dropped. What happened in 1990 was that the world found out about it when Christopher Cerf, the writer of the parody, talked about it during an interview.
