CAST: Joan Ganz Cooney, Jim Henson, Jon Stone DIRECTOR: Marilyn Agrelo IN-THEATERS ONLY | NOW PLAYING

A look inside the minds and hearts of the Sesame Street (1969) creators, artists, writers, and educators who, together established one of the most influential programs in television history.

It's hard to ask for much more than a doc that captures creatives thoughtfully sneaking the civil revolution as well as basic education into children's TV and includes a Muppets blooper reel.
Chris Willman, Variety
Marilyn Agrelo, whose doc comes from a book of the same name, crafts a great tribute to the team of people who believed it was possible to make entertainment for kids that didn't talk down to them and also wouldn't drive their parents out of the room.
