Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Rap

It's nice when late night TV does something that the kids can enjoy too. In this case, the Sesame Street rap is a tribute to all of our favorite Children's Televsion Workshop characters who have sung many a song to generations of kids. The song doesn't really tell us how to get to Sesame Street any better than the lyrics to the show's actual theme song, but it's a lot of fun. Tariq from The Roots even goes on a roll call of nearly all the most prominent Muppet characters who have been a regular part of the show for the past 50 years. Gather up the kids to check this one if they're getting a little too rowdy.
