Go To
Sunny day
Sweeping the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet
Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street?
Lyrics to the main theme of the show..
Sesame Street is a children's franchise whose base installment is a TV show of the same name, aired by PBS Kids (and later by HBO/HBO Max) and produced by Sesame Workshop (formerly Children's Television Workshop). The show, which is still running to this day, has proved popular enough to spawn numerous films, video games, and other derivative works - among them international adaptations of the original series. Primetime television specials featuring the show's characters have premiered on every "Big Four" commercial network in the U.S. — a rare enough accomplishmentnote  — but also on its home at PBS, a mark which will probably never be duplicated.note 

This series is part of the Muppets franchise since it uses puppets created by Jim Henson as main characters; the Sesame Street puppets have appeared in mainline Muppets franchise installments multiple times.
