I'd think you were joking around if you weren't living in Singapore. Sesame Street is a children's show with puppets (some of them later belonging to a group called the Muppets, and they did a show called the Muppet Show).

Here's how Sesame Street got it's name:

How did Sesame Street get its name?
After a long search for a catchy name, one of the show's writers suggested Sesame Street. The name "Sesame" was meant to conjure up a sense of excitement and adventure, as in the Arabian Nights command, "Open Sesame!" Because the show was set in an urban street scene, Sesame Street seemed an ideal combination.

Is that the answer to the question you were looking for?
