Big Bird’s legs were on the homepage of Google because Sesame Street’s 40th birthday is underway. It will take place on November 10th.

Executive Producer Carol-Lynn Parente said in a statement that Sesame Street is promising to celebrate the anniversary with some changes.

“When you turn on your TV on November 10”, “you’ll see a brand-new and spectacularly beautiful opening sequence. We’re also launching an entirely new format for the show — the magazine format of Sesame Street, which has been evolving over the years, has been officially replaced with what we’re calling a ‘block’ format. And it’s just wonderful.”

But why Big Bird? It could have been Erni, Bert, Hermit, or Cookie Monster.
