With the death last year of Joe Raposo at age 52, Sesame Street lost an important neighbor. The prolific composer wrote more than 1,000 jaunty ditties for the show, including its theme song and "Bein' Green." This tribute uses musical clips from the show and reflections by celebrities and co-workers. But it would have been more moving if there were better footage of Raposo himself to convey a clearer sense of the man.
