Enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes aspects of Sesame Street and puppets in general. It was also just a neat "rags to riches" story as Kevin pursued his passion/talent!!

This was recommended to me by a friend. It is an incredible film and a phenomenal reminder that we all have a gift. I applaud Kevin's family for recognizing his gift, for celebrating his talent and allowing him to develop at such an early age. This is a remarkable story.

We found this both interesting and enjoyable. It is great to see how puppeteers are willing to help each other.

An amazing, touching, joyful look at the magic of Kevin Clash as Elmo and himself, you can be sure to tear up here and there watching this documentary. I recommend it highly as an antidote to the cynicism and meanness of the real world. Long life, Mr. Clash! And thank your for the joy and love you bring into this world.

Elmo wasn't around when I was a kid so I never really knew that much about him except that all the kids love him. It was fascinating to see how he came about the deeply complicated man that created him.

Good movie to watch if you grow up with Sesame Street. My favorite of the Sesame Street Puppet is Cookie Monster.
