Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother, played by Andrea Martin, visit Sesame Street.

Cinderella is the featured character in a folktale which dates as far back as the 1630s. Over the centuries, the best known versions have been written and developed by the likes of Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm and Walt Disney.

The story continues to inspire artists. It was conceived as a made for television musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein, while Stephen Sondheim included Cinderella as one of the principal storylines in his Broadway musical Into the Woods. Vince Gill and The Cheetah Girls have even recorded songs inspired by the rags to riches tale.
