Would Sesame Street - or its equal - have been developed without public funding?

Sesame Street set the standard. We would have never have had anything remotely like it through commercial television.

Nobody would ever start a show for the public good. Therefore it would never be as good.

Would SS be as popular without Jim Henson?

Damn I wish The Electric Company (original, not the bad v good guy version now) was available somewhere. That show was the only source for grammar analysis as the pub schools stopped back in the 60s or so...

And yes, you can youtube a few shows, but that's about it.

Just to see a young Morgan Freeman makes it worth it.
