Sesame Street has been around for a long time, 40 years, and is celebrating its anniversary with a gardening video that promotes the benefits of healthy eating and stars First Lady Michelle Obama, Elmo, and Big Bird. Who steals the show? You decide.

  Big Bird was just a fledgling in 1970, but even then he was at ease in the spotlight. Here, he greets First Lady Patricia Nixon at the White House. We'll probably never know why she's holding one of his feathers.
