Editorial Reviews
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

5Never mind the kids, I LOVE IT!
By tachi1
As a grandmother, I'm getting a second round of Sesame Street (which I always loved when my own kids were small). This particular DVD is adorable. It has all the classic songs I (amazingly) still remember the words to: Rubber Ducky, Sing, I love trash, C is for cookie, Sing, and many more. They are woven together in a loose plot of looking for performers for a show Big Bird wants to put on, but it is basically a collection of songs and lively dance performances which keep the little ones riveted.

It is longer than most DVD's which last about a half-hour. This one is a full hour, so you probably won't watch the whole thing in one sitting. It has all the classic characters and a couple that weren't there when I stopped watching, but are equally charming. It's fast-paced, upbeat, funny, colorful, & entertaining. If you are starting a collection of videos, The Sesame Street 25th Birthday Musical Celebration is, without doubt, the one to get first.

5Lots of music and dance!
By amkoch
Purchased for my Granddaughter, as a Christmas gift when she was about 18 months old (now almost 2) and she loves this CD. Mommy says they watch this every night after dinner, as her before bath/bedtime routine. She's taken videos of her dancing to the music. Def a favorite!

5Sesame Street 25th Birthday
By Rebecca J. Hulit
I got this for my African Grays, FuzzyButt and KuKachoo. FuzzyButt has been watching the Ninja Turtles movies (he has all of them) for nearly 7 (yes seven) years now, at least twice and three times a day after David Garret instrumentals in the morning. He's also a male with a constant need for entertainment and enrichment, (neither of my grays are caged except at night in their condos). I wasn't sure if this would keep his attention but clearly CLEARLY it does. I have 4 nannycams on them when I'm downstairs and he remains extremely vocal when this disk plays over his enclosed monitor, watching and singing and talking the entire time. I believe I'll need to get more Sesame Street videos!
