Here a Google, There a Google, Everywhere a Google Google

Google doodles are Google's versions of the home page logo that celebrate events and anniversaries. Google today began featuring Sesame Street's beloved characters as a special doodle series in the run up to Sesame Street's 40th anniversary on November 10th.

Big Bird was featured today on the Google homepage. Conveying his height, we only see Big Bird from the waist down; his legs form the L in Google. Other favorite characters will be featured for the next seven days. I was weaned on public broadcasting shows like Sesame Street and The Electric Company and Zoom, so I had a visceral reaction to the big lunkhead. I can't wait to see who will be featured next.

Turns out, the Sesame Street characters -- and in particular Cookie Monster with his googly eyes – saw Google coming way back in 1982. Marissa Mayer embedded this video in her blog post today about Sesame Street's 40th.
