Sesame Street...

Today is one of Sesame Street's best loved characters birthday. Can you guess who it is? It's Elmo! Does anyone know how old Elmo is? A hint, the toy Tickle Me Elmo is ten years old. If you have little one's will you celebrate Elmo's birthday with them in someway?

I don't know, I'm going to have to look up Big Bird and Bert and Ernie. I bet Oscar is getting up there in years too. Wow. Thanks for your input.

Big Bird's birthday is on March 20th. http://www.petcaretips.net/big-bird.html It doesn't give a definite age for him though.

Tickle me Elmo? It's hard to believe it has been that long ago. It seems like it was only a couple of years ago When there was all that houpla about him in the news with the stores running out of him. Where does time go.

Not the "Tickle Me Elmo" doll, sorry. You are correct about that, it was only several years back. The character of Elmo originated on Seasame Street 21 years ago. Isn't it amazing how time flies, lol. I am sorry if the post confused you. Thank you for replying. I appreciate it.

I Love Elmo, but I had no clue it was his birthday. I thought he was 11 years old because that toy came out last year for his 10th birthday but I guess I'm 10 years off lol. Oops!

It's okay, I didn't even realize the character was 21 at first. I watched Sesame Street as a kid, and he wasn't on then, but he was when my kids were little. My how time flies when we're having fun. Thanks for your reply, I always love hearing your input.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELMO! My kids love him! I remember that Tickle Me Elmo from 10 years ago too! Well this is a cause for a celebration-- perhaps I'll buy some cupcakes and we'll sing to our Chicken Dance Elmo (which is the most obnoxious toy in the world, but the kids love it).

Thanks for the response. I just thought it was a cute topic. I can't believe he's 21. Makes me feel very very old.

Whiteheather solved the mystery. Elmo is 21. My kids loved him too, but my grandson is the one that is really into Elmo, and he's only one. Thank you for sharing.

I thought if I did a Yahoo search it would open in another window, but it does not. I would guess that Elmo has to be at least 40?

Whiteheather found out he is 21, and started the show, in 1985. Wow. 40? Just kidding. I would have thought he was older too. Thanks for responding.
