I was expecting to hate this - but I think it's terrific!

"Many of the newer Sesame Street videos, particularly if they feature the "little red menace" are watered-down and icky sweet. This one actually scared my toddler a little bit at the beginning - but engaged him enough to keep him watching until he wasn't scared any more - EXACTLY what you want it to do!Toddlers have lots of fears - especially around halloween - and this video is a good way to show them that being scared can be fun! It's filled with knock-knock jokes, bad puns, and spooky talking skeletons, ghosts, and more fun props. I love that they didn't get rid of the thunder, lightning, or any other "scary" stuff in the Count's castle. There's also a lot of muppet-kid interaction where everyone gets silly.I highly recommend this video to anyone who's got a shy toddler!"
Great video for the little ones

"My daughter is 11 months and about the only things she watches are Elmo and Barney (and we don't let her watch a lot of either because we want her to do other things while we still have some input). Her favorite tapes/dvds are The Best of Elmo, Elmo Says Boo, and Kids Favorite Songs II in the Sesame Street/Elmo series. She gets bored with Elmo's World series as it gets a little too serious for her and she seems to get bored. This tape is great and she doesn't seem to get scared at all. Maybe that will come later, but I don't see how a kid could really get scared at this tape. It's a stitch to me, but I'm not 2 either."
Enjoyable to watch, but a parent needed to help.....

"My Daughter - now 2- is an Elmo fanatic. And while she was quite excited to see the new video, it has taken 3 viewings With Mommy close by to feel comfortable with this video.Between the friendly ghosts, the rattling skeleton and the spooky organ, she was quite unsure - especially when she saw Elmo jump or cry out with fright. She was also very skittish through the Ernie and Bert in Egypt skit - with the "Ernie" statue that moved.That is not to say that she now does not love this video - I just want to caution parents that they may need to be close by to do some explaining and reassuring as it can be a bit spooky. Unlike one like the "Best of Elmo", I think this one needs a big lap to snuggle into to enjoy!"
Seasonal fun, and a favorite!

"Our daughter, at 7 months, is already addicted to Elmo (so much for "no TV before age 2"), and has a big attention span when it comes to his videos. She really enjoys this one--more than just "Elmo's World" but less than her favorite, the "Elmo in Grouchland Sing and Play" video. The video's plot is simple--Elmo has come to the Count's castle for a visit, and to trade "spooky" jokes. Everyone in the castle takes part--a skeleton, a pipe organ, the bats. In the usual format, song clips and sketches are introduced. They include the Count singing the "Batty Bat" (that's a favorite) and the Ernie and Bert in Egypt sketch.Funny, I never even stopped to consider whether or not it was too scary! Our daughter wasn't frightened at all. Other reviewers are saying that their toddlers are a bit scared by this one, so maybe next year (we're putting it away 'til next Halloween) we'll get different results!"
