A '70s 'Sesame Street' Clip Is Going Viral Just Because It's So Darn Cute

Never change, "Sesame Street."

An old "Sesame Street" clip making its rounds on the Internet is further proving the show's longevity.

The educational show for kids is still around, but a scene from years ago has recently gained some popularity on Viral Thread's Facebook page. The video features Herry Monster counting to 20 with a boy he calls John John, and has been viewed more than 10 million times since being posted on July 8.

As soon as little John John lays down the law with Herry Monster and says, "I go first, you go second," we knew we were in for a treat.

According to The New York Times, John John was 2 years old when he made his "Sesame Street" debut in 1971. He went on to do more skits with other beloved "Sesame Street" characters as a kid and reunited with his pals to make an appearance as an adult in the 1989 TV special "Sesame Street: 20 and Still Counting" and recreate his adorable scene with Herry. He gave his furry friend a quick update on his life, shared that he went by John Williams now and of course let him know that he'd count first and Herry could go second.

Oh, the nostalgia.
