The Boston T Party

The Boston T Party

I remember Sesame Street. Well, we all do; it was probably one of the best children’s educational TV shows ever, not least because it understood that children could also appreciate quite sophisticated humour. This was, after all, the birthplace of Kermit the Frog.

Just recently, Sesame Workshop, the organisation that produces the show, have posted some classic moments to YouTube. One such is The Boston T Party (I have to give you a link because they’ve disabled embedding). You have to ignore the strange pseudo-Australian accent that’s supposed to represent Cockney, but the genius lies in the way they manage to combine a brief history lesson with a very silly joke.
