The U.S. Postal Service announced this week three additional stamp subjects for 2019.

The new stamps will celebrate 16 Muppet characters from “Sesame Street” including Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Rosita, The Count, Oscar the Grouch, and many more. 

“For the last 50 years, it has provided educational programming and entertainment for generations of children throughout the country and around the world,” USPS said. 

Art Director Derry Noyes designed the Muppet stamps.

The Postal Service also plans to bring Tyrannosaurus rex to life, some 66 million years after its demise.

“One design illustrates a face-to-face encounter with a T. rex approaching through a forest clearing; another shows the same young adult T. rex with a young Triceratops — both dinosaurs shown in fossil form. The third and fourth stamps depict a newly hatched T. rex covered with downy feathers and a bare-skinned juvenile T. rex chasing a primitive mammal,” USPS explained. 

And last but certainly not least, some spooky silhouettes in time for Halloween.

“With the approach of autumn, Spooky Silhouettes stamps will offer fun, frightful scenes that symbolize this annual celebration. Four stamps feature digital illustrations in which traditional Halloween motifs are rendered as black silhouettes in eerily backlit windows.” 

More details, including dates and locations for the first-day-of-issue ceremonies, “will be coming soon,” according to USPS. For more information, please click here!
