LearningMatters

One installment of the PBS show Learning Matters, which aired in November of 1990, focuses on Sesame Street. The documentary features host John Merrow interviewing Dr. Gerald Lesser, intermixed with interviews with kids (preschool attendees of The Calhoun School in New York City), clips from the show, and some behind-the-scenes footage of a promo for Big Bird's Birthday or Let Me Eat Cake.

Topics discussed include how educational objectives were translated into Muppet characters, the show's first guest star James Earl Jones, and retired characters Roosevelt Franklin, Professor Hastings, and Buddy and Jim.
