During the first season of Sesame Street, several animated inserts were produced called Speech Balloon[1], in which a character says a letter and a word that begins with that letter. The word appears in a word balloon, accompanied by an image.
As part of the show's bilingual project, certain segments also aired on Sesame Street in Spanish.
