Hi. You may or may not know that the revolutionary known as Lin-Manuel Miranda appeared on Sesame Street in 2009 as rhymin' real estate agent Freddy Flapman.

He is not throwing away his shot to convince Big Bird to migrate to a new habitat.

The song starts at 2:11.

Depending on how hard you stan, you may also know that Lin-Manuel voiced the theme song for the iconic "Murray Has A Little Lamb" segment on the show (yes, I do know what iconic means, thank you).

🎶G-go, Murray🎶

But did you know the young, scrappy, and hungry Miranda also composed FIVE songs for the show beginning in 2011?

Hey Sesame Street fans: I wrote the music for this tune for the new season: http://t.co/Jugedu1Qyl

OK, he probably wasn't that hungry; he'd already composed and starred in In The Heights. Still tho.

Of course he did. Because he is one of history's greatest pedagogs (fancy for "teacher"), and he LITERALLY DROPS KNOWLEDGE WITH EVERY WORD.
