If you have toddlers in the house you’ve probably seen a countless number of Sesame Street episodes. But where did the name come from?
It’s pretty simple actually. After searching for a catchy name for the show one of the writers in the show’s writer’s room suggested “Sesame” based on the famous saying “Open, Sesame!” which feels welcoming like you’re about to do something exciting or go on an adventure. Everyone loved it and the rest is history.
Some named that were rejected… The Video Classroom, 1-2-3 Avenue B, and Fun Street. I don’t hate Fun Street but I’m happy they went with Sesame.
