Tracee Ellis Ross Just Shared This Clip of Her 10-Year-Old Self on ‘Sesame Street’ Alongside Her Mom & Sisters

Not many people can say they've been on Sesame Street, let alone that they've been on it with their entire family.

But Tracee Ellis Ross just shared a vintage clip to her Instagram, where she revealed that long before her days on sitcoms like Girlfriends and Black-ish, she starred in an episode of Sesame Street alongside her famous mother, Diana Ross, and her two sisters, Rhonda and Chudney.

The 48-year-old actress is only ten years old in the video, which was filmed back in the early ’80s. In the caption, Ross wrote, “Little glasses Tracee being oh so serious on @sesamestreet in 1982… oh yeah and my mama and my sisters @therhondaross & @chudneylross.”

Understandably, the show takes advantage of having a musical talent like Diana Ross, who sings an original song titled “Picture a World.”

Diana performs choreography to match the lyrics, while a group of children mirror her moves. In front of the musical icon, 10-year-old Tracee is sporting a copper-colored sweater tucked into jeans, along with a pair of gold-rimmed eyeglasses. Her younger sister, Chudney, sits between their mom's legs, while Rhonda is seen on the rail of the staircase.

This is not the first time Ross has shared iconic throwbacks with her mom and sisters. For International Women's Day in March, the Black-ish star posted a series of photos from her childhood and said, “The women I come from. My foundation. My home. #internationalwomensday.”

We can never get enough of your family throwbacks, Tracee.
