If you are a child of a certain generation, you grew up regarding Mr. Hooper and Snuffleupagus as friends. You always count to 12 with a certain cadence. You understood that it’s okay to be a grouch sometimes. You were a child of the Street – and more than 50 years later, you have introduced your own children and grandchildren to Elmo, Rosita and Abby Cadabby.

Based on the book of the same name by Michael Davis, the new documentary by award-winning director Marilyn Agrelo (Mad Hot Ballroom) follows the story of the creation of Sesame Street and the Children’s Television Workshop during the first 20 years of the show. Go inside the hearts and minds of the Sesame Street creators, artists, and educators who established one of the most influential and enduring children’s series in television history.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and more than 20 original interviews, Street Gang: How We Got To Sesame Street introduces audiences to the gang of visionaries who set out to entertain and educate young minds by harnessing the power of television with furry characters, catchy songs, and a diverse cast.
