Simon Townsend is pictured accepting the 1983 Logie Award for Best Children's Television Program from none other than Sesame Street's Big Bird.

In the 1980s, Simon Townsend's Wonder World! dominated children's television in the weekday afternoon timeslot, winning a total of five TV Week Logie Awards.

The 1980s was also the decade in which the Logie Awards show was particularly known for its international guest star appearances, and so it was not that unusual to have a Sesame Street character present an award.
