3 stars out of 4 -- The tone is like a family home movie; there may be some conflicts but they are almost always resolved with good humor and one of the show's favorite words, 'cooperation.'

Buoyed to a tremendous degree by the participation of series creators Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett, spry legends in their 90s, STREET GANG traces the earliest origins of the Children's Television Workshop...

It's not the rousing celebration I had hoped for; however, Street Gang: How We Got To Sesame Street is well-researched, big-hearted, and high-minded, which makes it a pretty solid tribute. Full Review

Product Description:

Documentarian Marilyn Agrelo investigates one of the longest-running children's programs in American television history. Originally airing in 1969, Agrelo charts the origins of Sesame Street and its subsequent influence on both children's programming and its role in the television industry as a whole. Candid interviews with the program's creators, its creative team, and the consulting educators offer new perspectives on the significance of crafting quality educational television for children. Based on the book by Michael Davis.
