The man who founded Sesame Street and co-founded Sesame Workshop died age 93 on January 25.

Lloyd Morrisett died this week, with the Sesame Workshop – the non-profit organisation behind Sesame Street that helps children become smarter and stronger through its educational programs – delivering the news in a statement.

“Lloyd leaves an outsized and indelible legacy among generations of children the world over, with Sesame Street only the most visible tribute to a lifetime of good work and lasting impact,” read part of the statement, as obtained by Variety

Morrisett had the idea for the children’s series in 1965 when he noticed how engaged his three-year-old daughter was to the TV, causing him to wonder if it could be used as a means to educate children.
