Sesame Street Forever® Stamps

For 50 years, Sesame Street has won the hearts of kids, parents and fans alike.

In 2019, the U.S. Postal Service® honors Sesame Street, the influential and beloved children’s television show. For the last 50 years, it has provided educational programming and entertainment for generations of children throughout the country and around the world.

Arranged in horizontal rows, the stamps showcase 16 of the Muppets characters that appear on Sesame Street—Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Rosita, The Count, Oscar the Grouch, Abby Cadabby, Herry Monster, Julia, Guy Smiley, Snuffleupagus, Elmo, Telly, Grover, and Zoe. Images of nine of the characters appear on the right side of the pane underneath the iconic Sesame Street sign. The back of the pane displays the Sesame Street 50th anniversary artwork.

The first episode of Sesame Street aired on November 10, 1969. Audiences watching on the more than 180 stations that broadcast the episode were introduced to Gordon and Susan, Mr. Hooper, and some of Jim Henson’s Muppet characters, like Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Bert, and Ernie.

From the very first episode, Sesame Street was like no other children’s program. Scenes with human characters, often children themselves, interacting with Muppets of Sesame Street both large and small are interspersed with fast-paced, catchy videos teaching letters and numbers, songs sung by colorful characters and people, film clips of various real-world activities, and much more.
