One of "the kids", Miles was a regular cast member.

"The Kids" is a generic term applied to any group of children performing on Sesame Street. Kids have always been a part of the Street — the first scene in the premiere episode includes a group of kids playing basketball.

Sesame Street albums sometimes credit "The Kids" for songs with a youth chorus, including "Somebody Come and Play," "Sing," and the "Sesame Street Theme."

In addition to appearing in street scenes, some of the best-remembered appearances on the show are in stand-alone segments with the Sesame Street Muppets (see Muppet & Kid Moments).

  • According to Kevin Clash, Whoopi Goldberg was once a babysitter for a few of the kids: "Before she was well-known, she was a baby-sitter for some of the kids we had on the show. Then she became famous and whenever we ask her to do something for us, she's always there. She's a part of Sesame Street."[2]
