This kind of reminds me of the Powers of Ten video where it pulls back and then forward. Just beautiful.

45 years and I wish they still taught kids this way. As an aside, this is a wonderful way to show a flare earther perspective. It's the reason I looked it up after all these years because if it taught me perspective at 4, may e it'll help some twenty something YouTubers
Anthony Rupert
I'm 34 years old and I STILL love watching this.

I can't help but feel that the singer sounds very lazy.

Great lesson in spatial awareness.😁

My fave part was the sun flare that would then show the whole solar system. When I was a little kid, I would wait for that part
Dave Hal
I remember seeing this as an original and remember I was mesmerized by the visuals, song and music.

Am I having a Mandela Effect moment in believing that there was a longer version of this back in the day?

Mum and I still sing this... I'm 44 and she's 73. Just wonderful.

Thank you so so soo much for finally uploading this song to YouTube. It was one of my favorite songs from the show ever, and it could always light up my face if I was feeling sad, and it still does. It brings a tear to my eye, and I even remember I had a school counselor who said this was his favorite song from the show. Not many people think of this, but I think this song could also be about how the world gets bigger as you grow up. When you're young, you're in this small town where you know...

I like how the singer is slightly off key. Real music made by real people. And hand drawn animation!
Greg Jude
So long, Bud; thanks for all the great memories and education.
Heather Ferreira
40 years later, ending still never fails to make me cry.  :')\n\nWell done, Bud Luckey and CTW. After all these years, still Sesame Street's single greatest cel segment masterpiece.

@Cuteblondie1972 ok so it makes you think how small our universe is compared to the solar system. what you just said is saying basically comparing how small a planet is compared to an ant. you said it wrong the solar system is infinitesimally smaller than the universe

And the animator just passed away. He went to work for Pixar where he worked with animators who remembered this when small... RIP

I had a Fischer Price hand camera with this film cartridge and would play it forwards and backwards.

And still something else-because my mom and her parents are buried in Shenandoah,PA(in Annunciation BVM parish Cemetery up on Shenandoah Heights,PA,in with my grandfather's family) all the more reason to have fond memories of \

Nothing beats classic Sesame Street. The songs were wonderful and simple, yet had such meaningful lyrics. One of my favorites.

I just learned that Bud Luckey, the animator and songwriter for this and countless other gems has passed away. Godspeed Bud!

Rest in Peace, Bud.

Bud Luckey is like some sort of elder sage that talked exclusively to little kids. And we had NO IDEA how good we had it.
Tommy Amoeba
i remember not being able to sleep the night after seeing this when i was a kid. \nthe song kept playing in my mind and its ideas were making my head swim.

Love how the chorus, or the entirety, of a Sesame Street song can stick with you for decades. I'm about the same age as Sesame Street, and these songs are a part of me forever.
alex carter
Genius. Wonderful animation, and music. How can anyone downvote this?
crossingforward
This is very existential.
fool4singing
I'm so glad I got to experience Sesame Street in the 70's. Better and funnier puppeteers, better songs and better animation shorts...
glowworm2
This is so catchy and wonderful to watch. A pure classic.
gregorysharp
This is my JAM!!!! I’d love a high quality of this song. So much wonderful.

Word is that Bud Luckey has the original storyboards for this short in his Pixar office.
