Google continues to pay tribute to Sesame Street
Thu Nov 5
The execs over at Google must be pretty big fans of the Street , because they're honoring the show's 40th anniversary again today . This time, the logo incorporates Cookie Monster noshing on one of his favorite treats, with his big Google-y eyes serving as Os. Who do you think will appear tomorrow? Our money's on Elmo!

Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 9 at noon, and we're sure they're going to sell out fast.

Google celebrates Sesame Street's 40th birthday
Wed Nov 4
Most people don't embrace their 40th birthday as enthusiastically as Sesame Street (guess monsters age really well). Then again, few humans get an exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library , a restospective book and a best of DVD in honor of the occasion. Today, google is also marking the milestone adding Big Bird's bottom half to its logo. We've said it before and we'll say it again: Happy Birthday Sesame Street !
