Beloved by children of all ages around the world, Elmo is an international icon.  But few people know his creator, Kevin Clash.  Displaying his creativity and talent at a young age, Kevin ultimately found a home with his idol, master puppeteer Jim Henson, on Sesame Street. Narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, this documentary includes rare archival footage, interviews with Frank Oz, Rosie O’Donnell, Cheryl Henson, Joan Ganz Cooney and others, and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the world of the Muppets.
