Philip Glass for Sesame Street

More proof that Sesame Street (the original series) was the greatest show EVER. In 1979, famed-composer Philip Glass wrote a series of pieces for the show called “Geometry of Circles”.

Kids these days aren’t getting the visual education they need! So many of today’s designers were being taught design principles at an early age by shows like Sesame Street.

Another great clip – Counting up to 20 – You never see psychedelic animation like this on kids shows today.

  • psychedelic indeed! no wonder kids used to watch a lot of sesame street!

  • yea haha – i am really hoping they put out full seasons on dvd i would buy them all in a heartbeat

  • Amazing!! I grew up watching Sesame Street and while I knew it was fantastic, I never realized how it may have subconsciously informed my design sense.

    Oh my goodness!!! I had forgotten those clips but when they started playing I immediately remembered everything about them. These things stay in your subconscious and I definitely think Sesame Street of yesteryear was way better than what they are showing kids now.

  • Yeah I almost want to start a petition to bring back the original series!

  • For MY sake! haha

  • I remember watching this when I was a kid… :)
    @Tracy, I totally agree.
