Find out from the researchers what works and why. Enjoy nostalgic moments such as Big Bird's experiences, Henson's Muppets, and the game, "One of These Things is Not Like the Others." Finally, travel internationally to the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, Russia, and the Latin American countries to explore different adaptations of Sesame Street. Journey with me now for an exciting adventure! You'll meet famous people such as Joan Cooney, who is responsible for the creation of Sesame Street. Carol Spinney, who plays Big Bird and (did you know) Oscar the Grouch too, and tells you how the Grouch got his voice. Producer Jon Stone, called "the soul of Sesame Street," talks about humor, puppets, and keeping the show fresh. Jane Henson, wife and creative partner of the late Jim Henson, shares their thinking on the role of fantasy in this television series. Long-time Actor Bob McGrath talks about acting with Oscar the Grouch. Emily Perl Kingsley, writer since 1970, brings special education to the forefront with her son, Jason. And Jeff Moss, known for his popular song "Rubber Duckie," gets down to basics on songwriting and scriptwriting.
