Sesame Street ~ Public Domain ~ Whole Season!



Hi Everyone.  I am George Perce.  This post is about a find that I want to share with those of you who are using my Faceless Video training or considering using it.  If you are unfamiliar, it is a way to make money on YouTube without making videos. You legally download videos from Public Domain sites such as Internet Archive or the Library Of Congress and upload them to YT, I have added a couple of steps, one to help ensure that you choose videos that people want to watch, and one to gain more exposure.  

If you recall, two of my recommendations for this process were to create a YT channel based on Game Shows and Kid's TV.  I have NOT created a Kid's channel yet, so I cannot make any promises or guarantees, but I can attest to the fact that Game Shows and Kid's TV are extremely popular on YT.  This is based on data and research, and I have launched a Game Show channel.  It had its first view,  14 and a half weeks ago.  The following is a snapshot of an overview of the channel stats, all at no cost.


The most important number above is Watch Time.  The more watch time that videos get, the more it tells YT that people like your videos which means that YT is more and more likely to share them with more and more people and all for free.  As mentioned, the first step of my Faceless Video process, helps you to find the videos that are going to get watched. 

This next snapshot is what led me to my find.


As you see above, according to Google Trends, Sesame Street was in the top five TV shows from 99 to 04.  This is a good indicator that kids will watch Sesame Street episodes, but...  Are episodes available?  Even more importantly, can they be legally used on YT?  

This brings us to my findings. 

The next image is from the Internet Archive.




What I discovered is that many seasons and episodes of Sesame Street are stored in the Internet Archive, but that does not mean that we can legally use them.   However, there is at least one Season of Sesame Street that is Public Domain.  As you can see below, Season 52 is free of known restrictions. 



I use a tool called Keyword Explorer to make my research easier, I use the paid version, which gives more suggested keywords, but it is available for free and it is marvelous.  The following is simply proof that these videos should get a lot of views.


According to Keyword Explorer, there are almost 6 MILLION searches for Sesame Street on YT per month.  Notice that the top two videos have 1.9 and 1.8 Billion views.  A YT partner earns an average of $4 per thousand views. 

SHHHH!  Notice that the top videos are SONGS.  If you know Sesame Street, there are going to be songs that could be used alone, in a compilation, as a teaser, etc,  

I have not yet started a Kids' TV channel, so I cannot pass on Kids' TV results, but, as you can see, the data speaks loudly. 

I have come up with a three-step adaptation of the Faceless Video process, as you can see, I am using it myself, and I have laid out the process in detail so that anyone can follow what I am doing and how to do this with ZERO cost, and, there is no cost for the training,  I invite you to check out my free Faceless Video Training

Thank you for reading.

Much success,

GSeorge Pierce


PS.  I have another find!

    George, this is an outstanding tutorial.  You do a lot of indepth research your content is gives tons of value.  I agree with Terri, you're amazing.

      Although the research does not always work, it is usually reliable.  It helps to point us toward those adventures that will work and, just as importantly, to avoid ones that do not, thank you, Robin.

      Watching your results is proof that it works to do the work.  I watched Sesame Street for years, kids love it and you don't stop loving it as an adult.  Like Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch, it was a great show for kids and adults.  And looking at the current offerings of kids shows and entertainment, I'm not surprised parents are looking for more wholesome content. 

      Also, homeschooling has increased exponentially and a lot of parents use it to educate their children.  I think that's something a lot of parents would love.  Especially if they love and care about what they're children are watching and listening too.

      I had not thought of the added aspect of home-schooling, thank you, Robin.

      You're welcome, George.  I homeschooled for a while back in the late 80s' and 90s', there were many people doing it back then.  I did it because I wanted to raise my children, but the schools were becoming bad back then.  Now the schools are horrible and homeschooling has exloded.

    Sesame Street is popular with the kiddies and some grownups too. I loved it when I was a kid and this is what little ones need to watch these days. 

    Your stats are impressive and the research you do is what needs to be done so you can know what people like and give it to them. You're amazing George.

      I loved Sesame Street too and taught kids a lot.

      I am running into some copyright issues from Sesame Street Workshop so I am quite sure they are legit, but some of the older ones are OK and should be solid gold, thank you, Terri.
