Caution: Commercials Ahead

"This DVD is a repackaging of the TV special that ran on PBS in 2004 and still appears in reruns of Sesame Street. So if you can record it off TV, you'll basically have this DVD plus some really good clips at the end that didn't make it on the DVD.
We had this recorded on a VHS tape, but we bought this version for the ease and convenience of using a DVD. But it turned out to be much more of an annoyance. This DVD has a 2 minute Whoopi Goldberg advertisement for Sesame Workshop at the beginning. It cannot be skipped. It cannot be fast-forwarded. You cannot jump to the menu. If you press stop at any time, the whole thing starts over, making your child cry more. When you get to the menu, you have to press play again, effectivey forcing you to stand there watching this advertisement EVERY TIME you play this DVD for your child.
Most of us aren't too fond of ads at the beginning of VHS tapes, but they were easy to fast-forward past. Now that we have the incredible technology of DVDs, they have used this technology to lock out our fast-forward buttons. Well, if we're going to pay good money for something, I think we should be allowed to skip a commercial if we want to.
I like Sesame Street, and I think they do a lot of good things. Go buy the "Let's Make Music" DVD featuring Stomp - it's great. But mandatory commercials at the beginning of their DVDs is an annoying trend that needs to be stopped before it gets out of hand. Vote with your dollars.
In summary: skip this DVD like it was a Whoopi Goldberg commerical.
Okay if you like Elmo.

"I was thinking when I saw it on the network, that they were going to be showing a lot of history from Sesame Street. Elmo's World pretty much takes over a lot of the show and you only see very very short clips with Elmo riding in a taxi cab.
They have some clips that some may remember growing up for representing the number of the day, which is 10.
They have very short clips at the ending that show the years of Sesame Street that some may remember. Like when Mr. Hooper died, when Snuffy became real, and the Hurricane on Sesame Street.
I have nothing against the little red monster, but I was expecting a little bit more history, and a little less Elmo. When I was growing up, Big Bird and Oscar and Mister Snuffleupagus were the stars.
May Sesame Street have many more years to come. 35 years and one to grow on. ^_^"

"Plain and Simple - when a show hits 35 years the people that made the show should be smart enough to realize that Parents who saw the show as Kids want their own Kids to watch what they had watched - to share memories with them.
In this case, its yet another Elmo video. Fine, OK, things change. But don't misrepresent what you're going to see - I really wanted to show my boy Mr. Hooper, and the guy with the pies that slips down the stairs, and when they thought Snuffy wasn't real, and all the old characters.
The stuff is on tape Sesame Street Execs - can you please put out "Sesame Street - Best of Season 1, 2, 3? I'd buy everything from Season 1 - Season 6. I bet I wouldn't be the only one either....
Please put out some older Sesame material.... Don't slip in a few seconds of Mr. Hooper in an Elmo tape.
