B is for Birthday! Happy Birthday to Sesame Street, which turned 40 last week. And what better way to celebrate than by inviting some of today’s hottest celebrities? More than 440 celebrities have visited Sesame Street’s storied set, where Jim Henson’s Muppets educate children on everything from counting to the importance of loving and respecting the Earth.
