HBO Sesame Street Documentary

There’s a new Sesame Street documentary on HBO which I absolutely recommend: Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street.

Of course I watched Sesame Street as a pre-schooler in the late 1970s, and again when my kids were of age a few years ago. So wonderful to see all the behind-the-scenes footage, and the muppets as I remember them. Even as a grown-up—the muppets are funny!

The above video is from the Sesame Street segment “Geometry of Circles” which had music by none other than Philip Glass.

There’s also this classic, jazzy bit circa 1976 with vocals by the Pointer Sisters:

Great stuff!
