Lloyd leaves an outsized legacy among generations of children, with Sesame Street only the most visible tribute to a lifetime of impact. A wise, thoughtful, and kind leader, Lloyd was fascinated by technology and new ways it could be used to educate. Co-Founder Joan Ganz Cooney put it best. “Without Lloyd Morrisett, there would be no Sesame Street. It was he who first came up with the notion of using television to teach preschoolers basic skills, such as letters and numbers. He was a trusted partner and loyal friend to me for over fifty years, and he will be sorely missed.”
