Michelle Obama Celebrates Sesame Street’s 40th Birthday

This year, Sesame Street is turning 40, but Elmo hasn’t aged a day. To celebrate,Michelle Obama will be appear on the show’s premiere on November 10th. The episode will focus on healthy eating and growing vegetable gardens.

For a sneak peak of the First Lady’s episode, see the PSA she and Elmo filmed this spring. Nothing against veggies, but I personally love this clip of Cookie Monster teaching Susan Sarandon how to eat a cookie.

This season, the show has a star-studded line up of guests including Cameron Diaz, Hugh Jackman, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Fallon and two Gyllenhalls for the price of one. Here’s to 40 more years of sunny days!
