Who would have imagined that behind the scenes of a cute kids program there was a deep reservoir of theological truth and moral teaching that has shaped mnds and hearts of millions of children? A fascinating read." - Robert Lupton, Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those they Help and How to Reverse It. "Not only is this a lesson in television history, it takes an iconic show and delves deeper into the moral and spiritual themes that lie just below the surface, giving us a new way to look at a special place called Sesame Street." - Tony Rossi, Director of Communication, The Christophers and National Catholic Radio Host During its forty-five seasons on air, Sesame Street has not only taught children letters of the alphabet and numbers, it has also taught children lessons in faith, equality, and social justice. Most of all it has taught children in subtle ways to follow The Golden Rule and that all people are created equal. It is without doubt one of the most significant television programs of all time.

Now an acclaimed documentary from Screen Media, the New York Times bestselling account of the story behind one of the most influential, durable, and beloved shows in the history of television: Sesame Street. “Davis tracks down every Sesame anecdote and every Sesame personality in his book . . . Finally, we get to touch Big Bird's feathers.” —The New York Times Book Review Sesame Street is the longest-running-and arguably most beloved- children's television program ever created. Today, it reaches some six million preschoolers weekly in the United States and countless others in 140 countries around the world. Street Gang is the compelling, comical, and inspiring story of a media masterpiece and pop-culture landmark. Television reporter and columnist Michael Davis-with the complete participation of Joan Ganz Cooney, one of the show's founders-unveils the idealistic personalities, decades of social and cultural change, stories of compassion and personal sacrifice, and miraculous efforts of writers, producers, directors, and puppeteers that together transformed an empty soundstage into the most recognizable block of real estate in television history.

With his instantly recognizable face, Roscoe Orman has become the personification of the perfect male friend and father figure while performing the roll of Gordon Robinson on Sesame Street for more than thirty-two years. He is an experienced performing artist who provides an exemplary model in his television role, its influence evident by the recognition and love he sees on the faces of all who recognize him (even when hes not with Big Bird or Oscar).At the same time, he has also made significant contributions to Black Theater in America and continues to practice his craft in live theater performances, most recently in The Confessions of Steppin Fetchit. Sesame Street Dad: Evolution of an Actor traces a lifetime of performances, punctuated by the events and movements that define the decades in between.While cast in these roles, Orman has come into contact with many celebrities with whom he has established friendships. Sesame Street Dad pictures a number of these artists, either in their appearances on Sesame Street or on other occasions. He is quick to credit Sesame Street Workshop, a confluence of amazingly dedicated and talented television writers, producers, actors, puppeteers and behind-the-scenes people who have contributed to the long-lived popularity of this amazing program.Roscoe Orman has lived a most enviable life, achieving success both personally and professionally. This book leaves a legacy of his work and constitutes a tribute to all of those who worked with him in the early years and who continue to influence his work.
