Original Sesame Street cast member Bob McGrath passed away at age 90.
"Oh who are the people in your neighborhood...."
You may have heard that song before, as sung by Bob many times on Sesame Street.
Bob was one of the original 4 non-Muppet actors on Sesame Street when the show debuted in 1969.
Many generations of children learned many things when Bob was on the Street, as he stayed on the show for 46 seasons!
Bob McGrath's family shared the news on Facebook Sunday; “Our father Bob McGrath, passed away today. He died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family,”
This video below might take you back to the days when Bob was teaching you about the people in your neighbourhood.
