The Sesame Street 1976 Calendar

Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) was an astronaut, best remembered as the first person to set foot on the moon. He has been referenced by the Muppets on several occasions. His famous line upon landing was "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."


  • In a Sesame Street News Flash sketch, Natalie, the cow who jumped over the moon, paraphrases Armstrong: "A small jump for cow, a giant leap for cowdom!"
  • A 1998 episode of Sesame Street, as part of the "Slimey to the Moon" arc, features footage of Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin preparing for their famous flight.
  • Armstrong and John Glenn are cited by K. Edgar Singer in Muppets from Space as two historic figures with whom he'd be honored to be amongst as those Earthlings who have traveled in space.
  • Big Bird and a child were inserted into footage of Armstrong and Aldrin planting the American flag on the moon for a 2000s PBS Interstitial.
  • In Tales of a Sixth-Grade Muppet, when Danvers comes to school dressed in an astronaut costume, his best friend Pasquale states that after his previous bad day, "going to school dressed as Neil Armstrong isn't the best option."
