As we get closer and closer to Sesame Street’s epic 50th anniversary, more and more celebrities are coming out of the woodworks (you know, where they work… with wood) to celebrate along with Elmo and the gang.  All throughout March, they’ve been tweeting about their Sesame memories, and we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorites!

Below, you’ll find just a few of those tweets, ranked in order of sentimentality, with our own justifications for why their special message belongs on this list.  I think you’ll find that they’re all really personal and written from the heart.
