‘Sesame Street’ Turns 50: Our Favorite Celebrity Cameos

It’s hard to believe a television show could outlive you, but it’s happened. Sesame Street just turned 50 years old. For many of us, this was the first TV show our parents let us watch, and even now, it provokes some tear-jerker nostalgia in us. Somehow, it’s also one of the few longtime television programs that just gets cooler with age. Part of what makes it so entertaining for all ages is the ongoing celebrity cameos. Rock stars, Academy Award-winning actors, comedians, and even political heavyweights have graced the Manhattan-themed set. Today, we relive the best of these special appearances by famous people in GIF form!
