Sesame Street Party Supplies – The Background
Sesame Street Party Supplies are based on Sesame Street, an American children’s television series. Sesame Street series is created by Lloyd Morrisett and Joan Ganz Cooney. The series is famous for its cultural references, short films, humor, animation and Jim Henson’s Muppets. On November 10, 1969, Sesame Street premiered on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) and received high ratings instantly.
The series was conceived in 1966 during discussions between Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett. Cooney is a television producer and Morrisett is Carnegie Foundation vice president. The discussion was to create a children’s show that would capitalize on the addiction of the television among children and do something good like helping young kids prepare for school.
It took two years to complete the research. A grant of $8 million was provided by the Carnegie Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the US federal government to create the new children’s television show. Sesame Street was the first kids’ educational television program that was based on formative research.
Initially, the show was funded by private and government organizations. But later the show was able to support itself through revenues generated from international sales, licensing arrangements and other media.
The show has celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2009. According to a 1996 survey, 95% of all American preschoolers had watches the Sesame Street show by the time they were three years old. It is estimated that by 2008, 77 million Americans had watched the series when they were young kids. The show is seen in more than 140 countries. In 2001 there were over 120 million international viewers. Sesame Street was rated the fifteenth-highest children’s television show in the United States in 2009.
By 2009, Sesame Street has won eight Grammy Awards and 118 Emmy Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Emmy. No other children show has been able to match this record. Sesame Street was ranked #27 in 2002 on TV Guide’s 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.
Throughout its history, Sesame Street has undergone significant changes. The federal government withdrew its funding in 1981. The show had to turn to other sources of revenue, including book royalties, product licensing, magazine division and foreign income.
In the recent times, the show has been facing major challenges due to the competition from other shows, changes in viewing habits of children and the cable television. The show has now incorporated a more narrative format and storyline to combat the dropping ratings.
The show has been a major source of influence for young children. It has taught them social competence, non-aggressive ways of resolving conflict and tolerance of diversity through humor, repetition and modeling. The show has been using the real-life experiences and real-life disasters such as the Hurricane Katrina and September 11 terrorist attacks to educate them.
Sesame Street Party Supplies – The Options
You may select Basic Party Pack from our Sesame Street Birthday Party Supplies which includes all the stuff you need for 8 guests. Or you may go with the Deluxe Party Pack from our Sesame Street Kids Party Supplies that has much more items than the Sesame Street Basic Pack. The Sesame Street deluxe pack is also for 8 guests. If you need favor boxes as well, I would suggest you to choose the combination of Deluxe Party Pack & 8 Favor Boxes from our Sesame Street Kids Birthday Party Supplies as it would cost you much more if you purchase them separately. If you think that the number of guests may exceed 8 you should consider Sesame Street Party Pack Add-On as it contains extra items for the extra guests. You may order Sesame Street Party Favor Boxes separately as well.
I’ve personally used Sesame Street Party Supplies for my kid’s birthday and through my personal experience I would recommend it to all Sesame Street lover kids.
