The United States Postal Service announced it is releasing a series of stamps bearing the faces of characters from the long-running television show "Sesame Street."
Calling it "one of the most influential and beloved children's television shows," the stamps will carry images of 16 of the show's well-known characters, including Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Elmo and Snuffleupagus, the USPS said.
The exact availability dates weren't included in the announcement. The USPS at the same time announced it would release limited edition stamps bearing images of Tyrannosaurus rex and "spooky silhouettes."
"Sesame Street" started airing on PBS 50 years ago, and in 2015 moved episode premieres to HBO, making those episodes available to PBS after a delay, according to PBS Newshour. The show does an estimated $100 million in business per year.
