The Sesame Street Experiment, screened at the Museum.

Sesame Street: The First Generation is an exhibition held at the Museum of Modern Art from November 11 to December 31, 1989. The exhibition celebrated the first 20 years of Sesame Street.

The exhibition featured weekend screenings of various Sesame Street related programs, including a pair of compilations of animated and live action films (hosted by Telly Monster and Oscar the Grouch in their Sneak Peek Previews format), a showcase of international co-production segments (Sesame Street Around the World), early kinescope footage of the series and the feature film Follow That Bird. Screenings of Christmas Eve on Sesame Street were also held during the weeks preceding Christmas.

A fifteen minute mini-documentary, The Sesame Street Experiment, was screened daily at the John Edward Noble Education Center.
