'Sesame Street' 'What Is A Computer?' Video: Kids Explain What A Computer Can Do In Clip From 1980s (VIDEO)

What is a computer?

To us, it's an indispensable part of our daily lives: A window to the world. A way to access a seemingly endless supply of information. All that and more.

But to a bunch of kids in the 1980s, a computer is "something that you write on and press buttons on."

An old "Sesame Street" clip unearthed via YouTube provides an amazing (and adorable) glimpse into the past. A teacher asks her young students, "What is a computer?" The rest has to be seen to be believed.

We do know one thing for sure that these children won't learn for a few decades: a computer is an incredible tool to discover lost television footage.
