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''. Sesame Street characters have made appearances on a number of game and talk shows.  Many stuffed animals of the Sesame Street characters are sold in amazing quantities and the [[Tickle Me Elmo]] is considered to be one of the best selling toys of all time. A number of musical albums have been released by Sesame Street characters, most notably ''Bert's Blockbusters'' which scored an unexpected success in 1974 with the single ''Doin' the Pigeon''.<ref>[http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/sesame_street/berts_blockbusters/ Bert's Blockbusters - #4 Album of 1974]</ref>
