"Sunny Day...
sweepin' the clouds away.
On my way to where the air is sweet!

Can you tell me how to get,
how to get to Sesame Street?

Come and play,
everything's A-okay,
friendly neighbors there,
that's where we meet!

Can you tell me how to get,
how to get to Sesame Street?"

A Must-Read for everyone who grew up
singing that song lyric above...

fascinating trivia sprinkled all throughout the book:

>Sesame Street's head writer, Tom Whedon,
had a son who also made it big on television: JOSS!
(TV's Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse)

>Gordon's daughter HOLLY became an actress on 21 Jump Street,
and you can currently see her on the new Celebrity Apprentice.

>and on p.210, the author reveals that a certain FIRST LADY
of the Philippines asked for her "cut" before allowing
Sesame Street to be show in the Philippines in the early '70s!
