Sesame Street is 40, as we were reminded this morning by a Google Doodle of Big Bird's legs, and what better way to celebrate than to look back at the memorable moments from the show's history? is sponsoring a vote on viewers' favorite episodes, but we went to YouTube to bring you our staff picks. Here's a small sampling of our favorite Sesame Street clips from over the years:

12: This crazy clip of an animated pinball machine helped kids count to 12 in fantastic fashion.

The "Yip Yip" Martians: They discovered everyday objects with a comic curiosity that kept us laughing. Here, they meet a telephone as only they can.

Batty Bat: The Count is one of our favorite Sesame Street characters. Here, with the help of his fanged friends, he reminds us of his favorite dance step: The Batty Bat.
