USPS sets June 22 release date for Sesame Street stamps
The Postal Service will release its Sesame Street stamps Saturday, June 22.
The stamp pane will honor the 50th anniversary of the influential and beloved children’s television show by showcasing 16 of its Muppet characters: Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Rosita, The Count, Oscar the Grouch, Abby Cadabby, Herry Monster, Julia, Guy Smiley, Snuffleupagus, Elmo, Telly, Grover and Zoe.
An image of nine characters appears on the right side of the pane, while the back of the pane features anniversary artwork.
USPS will dedicate the stamps June 22 in Detroit. The ceremony will be held immediately before one stop on the Sesame Street Road Trip, a celebration of the show’s golden anniversary that will be held in 10 cities across the United States.
The stamps, which were announced in March, will be available at Post Offices and usps.com.
