Hosted by Jon Stone, the special was completed in April 1990 and first aired on May 16. Jim Henson, who is interviewed in the special, had died earlier that same day.

The documentary also includes interviews from Walter Cronkite, Michael Krauss, Joan Lunden, Joel Siegel, Bob McGrath, Liz Smith, Dave Marash, Marc Brugnoni, Christopher Cerf, Jerry Nelson, Pat Collins Raposo, Nick Raposo, Joe Raposo Jr., Joan Ganz Cooney, Erich Segal, Jonathan Schwartz, Frank Oz, Morley Safer, John Velasco, Sheldon Harnick, several studio musicians (including Jim Mitchell, Danny Epstein, and Bob Cranshaw), and Phil Donahue.

Many of Raposo's songs from Sesame Street and other projects are highlighted. Other moments include a musical number choreographed by Jacques d'Amboise, and a celebrity montage of "Sing."
