Coming Attraction: 'Sesame Street' celebrates 40 years of sunny days

In case you missed the Google illustrations this week, our old friend "Sesame Street" is celebrating its 40th birthday on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

That's also the first day of the new season, which features Lin-Manuel Miranda of Broadway's Tony-winning musical "In the Heights." In the episode, he stars as Freddy Flapman (pictured above, center), who tries to convince Big Bird to migrate to a new, warmer habitat.

Say it ain't so, BB. That episode will be brought to you, naturally, by the letter H and the number 40.

Having debuted on Nov. 10, 1969, "Sesame Street" is the longest-running children's series. It's been a part of my life, well, my whole life. I'm happy to share it with CC.
