While America turns 238 years old on this Friday, July 4th, there's another reason you might want to get out a few cold ones ... and maybe some Snapple and Junior Mints. The landmark, groundbreaking and still relentlessly quotable "Seinfeld" celebrates its 25th anniversary on Saturday, July 5th. TBS has already started a nightly mini-marathon of the show's most famous episodes leading up to the big day, but if you want to dig a little deeper into the show you've watched (and re-watched and re-watched again), here's something worth checking out.

While America turns 238 years old on this Friday, July 4th, there's another reason you might want to get out a few cold ones ... and maybe some Snapple and Junior Mints. The landmark, groundbreaking and still relentlessly quotable "Seinfeld" celebrates its 25th anniversary on Saturday, July 5th. TBS has already started a nightly mini-marathon of the show's most famous episodes leading up to the big day, but if you want to dig a little deeper into the show you've watched (and re-watched and re-watched again), here's something worth checking out.

"Seinfeld - How It Began" is a lengthy, one-hour look at the roots of the show, first produced for the first volume of the DVD box sets, about how it got developed and made and much more. Featuring the participation of the lead cast members—Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards—along with Larry David, studio executives, writers and much more, it's well worth hitting play, especially for those obsessed with the show. So grab a bowl of chips (don't double dip), and celebrate 25 years (and the summer of George) by watching below.
