The Sesame Street Cast Drops In On NPR To Spread The Love
There is just so much joy in one video. The NPR Tiny Desk concerts are already renowned for being celebratory, explosively fun performances — when you combine that with Sesame Street, the sky is the limit.
With a medley of songs — everything from the infamous theme tune to songs like “What I Am” and “People in Your Neighborhood”, you get to see not only the incredible performances but the pure excitement on the faces of everyone who meets and performs with the cast.
“Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Rosita, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster, all singing about a sunny day and how everything is A-OK,” the description explains. “The Sesame Street crew — including Elmo, Grover and other surprise guests — visited NPR’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., to celebrate Sesame Street’s 50 years of teaching the world its A-B-Cs, its 1-2-3s, how to be kind and how to be proud, all while spreading love and joy.”

Unadulterated happiness — there’s no other word for it.
It’s also important to note that, despite being a children’s show, these are incredibly talented and hard-working performers.
“I’ll also say, on a personal note, that this may well have been the hardest-working, most dedicated group of performers I’ve ever worked with,” Bob Boilen writes. ” I’m so proud of these Muppets and so happy to celebrate all that they’ve meant to the world for these 50 years.”
Aren’t we all.
