“Sesame Street” co-creator Lloyd N. Morrisett has died at the age of 93, the “Sesame Workshop” announced on Tuesday.

Morrisett co-founded the Children’s Television Workshop with Joan Ganz Cooney in 1968, and “Sesame Street” first aired in 1969.

The show “started with a single bold question: could television be used to educate kids?” the workshop says of its history on its website.


“Sesame Workshop mourns the passing of our esteemed and beloved co-founder Lloyd N. Morrisett, PhD, who died at the age of 93,” the organization wrote in a statement to Fox News Digital.

“A Lifetime Honorary Trustee, Lloyd leaves an outsized and indelible legacy among generations of children the world over, with ‘Sesame Street’ only the most visible tribute to a lifetime of good work and lasting impact,” it said in the statement.

The Kennedy Center tweeted, “‘#SesameStreet is a place that asks children to learn how to become smarter, kinder, and stronger.’

”Today, we remember psychologist and @SesameStreet co-creator Lloyd Morrisett, who accepted the program’s 2019 #KennedyCenterHonors with fellow co-creator Joan Ganz Cooney.”
