Admit it, most of us learned the letter C from the Cookie Monster's iconic "C is for Cookie" song. But today's kids - they have it better. They're getting some Mythbusters along with their daily dose of Big Bird.
Kevin Clash. You might not know who he is but every kid in America will recognize his work. He's Elmo. Like the Elmo. Being Elmo is a documentary that takes a heartfelt look at Clash, Elmo, a lifelong dream and more. Watch the trailer, it looks ah-mazing.
