Yes, Virginia, there was a Sesame Street before the Age of Elmo. This 1993 collection highlights the role of music in the long-running series from Children's Television Workshop, and reminds us that such Jim Henson creations as Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, and Ernie and Bert were once part of a true ensemble of Muppet superstars. Nothing against Elmo, of course: kids adore him and he makes enough appearances in this anthology (including the show-stopping "Happy Tappin' with Elmo") to keep today's tykes happy. Also included is Ernie's classic "Rubber Duckie" (really, who doesn't know the words to that?), Oscar's anthemic "I Love Trash," you-know-who's "C Is for Cookie," and Big Bird's Big Finale, a rendition of "Sing" that includes the entire cast. There are 27 tunes in all, and they don't all involve singing puppets: Ladysmith Black Mambazo turns up for one track, and the "Sesame Street Jam Session" includes some actual playing of instruments. --Tom Keogh

Reviews - What do our customers think?
LOVE IT!  Feb 3, 2008
I think my husband and I like this video more than my twin 16 month old boys! We know all the words. We all love to sing and dance to this DVD. My husband's favorite part is Bert's pigeon dance and mine is Ernie's "dance myself to sleep". Everyone loves Grover's "wabba-wabba-wabba is a monster song". I highly recommend this video.
All our favorites  Dec 13, 2007
This video brought back memories and I am glad to share these songs with my son.
Once again I can make supper!  Dec 8, 2007
As we watch this video, my daughter (15 months) is completely enthralled. She loves music and while normal Sesame Street doesn't hold her attention for longer than Elmo's world, this video's music keeps her watching and dancing through the whole time. There are no commercials and the DVD starts right in. Smooth transitions. And a lot of the classic songs you're looking for. The first time my husband saw this he kept saying, "I remember this one!" Enjoy this video with your children or let your children enjoy it while you get something else done!
Don't waste your money  Dec 7, 2007
We are HUGE fans of Sesame Street. We watched the show as kids and our toddlers love it too. Unfortunately, this DVD is little more than a fast forwarded version of medleys & snippets of your memories.

The DVD started out poorly and just got worse. The video quality on the first few clips looked like they had simply been copied from an old VHS tape that was used a few dozen times before recording the show.

We timed the "Rubber Ducky" clip at about 30 seconds long and the "Do De Rubber Duck" clip was about 60 seconds long, plus it started halfway through the song!!! Honestly, even our 2 1/2 y/o toddlers noticed the highly abbreviated clips, showed disappointment, and completely lost interest in the DVD when their favorite songs were cut short.

One of the other reviews mentioned something about this being an African-American version of the show; while we enjoyed the clips with African-American performers very much (probably the most), it's nearly impossible not to notice that many, if not most, of the full songs & scenes on this DVD are in fact those including African-American performers. I don't know what the producers of the DVD were thinking, but it's pretty clear they must have had an agenda to market this DVD in a specific direction.

We remain devoted to watching Sesame Street on TV but will probably never purchase another DVD of the show because it seems obvious that little attention was paid to preserving the integrity of the performances that built Sesame Street's reputation into being an entertaining and educational children's program. If I could return an opened DVD and get my money back, I would do it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately we're stuck with a DVD that we'll probably never watch again and would be embarrassed to give to somebody without a warning of its shortcomings.

If we had recorded this show on the PVR, we probably would not have even watched the entire show before deleting it. Simply a waste of money; I wouldn't even recommend renting it through Netflix.
Sesame Street DVD's  Dec 1, 2007
My grandchildren adore these DVD's and the order was filled promptly and shipped out in a timely manner. Price was lower than most big box stores.
