Chances are, if you’re a regular visitor to this site, you’re around the age where Sesame Street and the early directorial efforts of Don Bluth were a major part of your childhood. No really, we have statistics. We’re absolutely not projecting our personal experience onto others. And the thing that Sesame Street, The Land Before Time, and An American Tail have in common are Judy Freudberg, a writer behind all three.
After a forty year career in children’s entertainment that began as a script typist for Sesame Street Workshop in 1971 and earned her seventeen Emmys, Freudberg died this week of a brain tumor at the age of 63.
