Maurice Sendak at the 92nd Street Y on April 23, 1967

In the mid-1960s, Maurice Sendak and actor Orson Bean performed together ~ Maurice drew as Orson read.

Wouldn’t it be something if we could time travel to Hudson Street?

In 2008, Maurice returned to the 92nd Street Y for an 80th birthday tribute.

You can watch the entire program here with a surprised Maurice enjoying presentations by Meryl Streep, David Eggers, James Gandolfi, Tony Kushner, Spike Jonze and others.

Just in case you missed it, here’s the Google Doodle ~ a rollicking rumpus of a birthday tribute.
