Michael Jackson (1958-2009) was an internationally known pop star who came to prominence first as the youngest member of the Jackson Five and later as a solo artist whose album Thriller (1982) remains the best selling album of all time.

Jackson appeared briefly in the 1978 TV special A Special Sesame Street Christmas, giving Oscar the Grouch a book about ghosts.

Jackson purchased the Beatles' music catalog from ATV in 1985; thanks to his purchase, a lawsuit against Sesame Workshop was dropped.[1]
