It has been around since 1969 and has spawned a series of movies, books, magazines, and toys. Sesame Street features [[muppet]]s interacting with adults and children in an educational setting that emphasizes learning numbers and letters. The show has won a number of [[Emmy Award]]s and is shown in over 25 languages around the world. ==Spinoffs==Sesame Street successfully launched the career of [[Jim Henson]]'s muppets and has produced countless imitations and variations. A number of Sesame Street movies have been made, including ''Follow That Bird'' and ''The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland''.
