Chrissy Teigen, Kim Raver & More Celebs Cheer 50 Years of “Sesame Street”

As the beloved children’s show <i>Sesame Street </i>approaches its 50th anniversary, celebrity fans have described why they love and appreciate it to the AP. Here are what these seven stars had to say about the show: <br /><br /><ul><li><b>Chrissy Teigen</b>. ″<i>Sesame Street</i> is, I think, the purest form of entertainment that has ever come through the television screens…<i>Sesame Street</i> actually makes me emotional with how caring and loving and pure and kind they’ve been throughout the years. It’s just nothing lights up a kid’s face like seeing Elmo.”</li><li><b>Carol Burnett</b>. “I forgot that there were people there. They were so real. I really felt like I was dealing with these critters and these creatures that were created so beautifully. The puppeteers were absolutely brilliant because you forgot that they were there. They just knew how to do it.”</li><li><b>Kim Raver.</b> “I learned how to count on <i>Sesame Street</i>. I learned the alphabet. While people were watching it on television, I was part of it, so that to me was really, I think, the beginning of this very creative world.”</li><li><b>Neil Patrick Harris</b>. “I think there’s something so special about making inanimate objects animate and when they can teach kids globally about not only letters and numbers and vowels but about sharing and responsibility, that’s something that will endure for 50 more years realistically.”</li><li><b>Emilio Estevez</b>. ″<i>Sesame Street</i> just has always pushed the envelope and pushed us to look at ourselves in a different way and each other in a compassionate way. And they did it with humor and they did it in a way that made it very palatable. So I think that’s the genius of the show and why it’s touched so many for so long.” </li><li><b>Olivia Holt</b>. “I definitely watched it as a kid. I think it’s not just entertainment, you know? I think there’s some lessons to learn behind it and I think as humans, we’re drawn to that. We’re drawn to sort of seeing people in this problematic light and then watching them sort of cope with it and how they cope with it.”</li><li><b>Meghan Trainor</b>. “I watched it as a kid. Everyone watched it. It’s amazing. My mom was like, ‘Oh that’s the anniversary of when I watched it,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, my gosh,’ because it came out when she was born. So, yeah. It’s not even like an iconic thing, it’s a lifestyle.”</li></ul>
