Instead of celebrating their anniversary when Sesame Street turned 42 years old yesterday, the show instead put a simple plea onto the web: Help us find Gordon.
Two years ago, we put together a huge anthology of our then-40 year history… and realized that we do not know who played Gordon in the test pilot. We've asked everyone we could think of - actors, actresses, and puppeteers who have been on the show since its inception; Sesame Workshop's founder, Joan Ganz Cooney; and of course, dug through seemingly endless boxes of documents and photos.
