Elmo Saves Christmas - Eventually!
Tammy Perkins | Seattle, WA United States | 12/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wouldn't it be great to have Christmas everyday? That's what Elmo thought, when he used the one of his three magic wishes, granted by Santa Claus after Elmo helped him get unstuck from the chimney. When Santa realizes what Elmo has done, he and Lightning, a cute little reindeer, take Elmo through time to show him what life would be like if it were Christmas everyday. They travel in the future, where the Count counts 193 days of Christmas on Sesame Street. Elmo sees that Big Bird is missing Snuffy, who went to visit his Granny in Cincinnati. Big Bird is sad, because he can't see Snuffy or mail him a letter (because there is no mail on Christmas). The children are also not learning because there isn't school. Then Elmo visits Maria, who is unhappy about buying presents everyday and not working. Then Elmo realizes that maybe it shouldn't be Christmas everyday.The video soundtrack is really catchy! The songs include: It's Christmas Again, Every Day Can't Be Christmas, Give Your Friend An Easter Egg For Christmas, All I Want For Christmas Is You, Keep Christmas With You All Through The Year. Celebrity Appearances include Maya Angelou (as the narrator), Charles Durning (who is an excellent Santa), and Harvey Fierstein (as the Easter Bunny). One thing that I disliked about this tape is that it is a bit long (most Sesame Street videos are 30 minute tapes, and this is an hour), so I think some of the video could have been edited out. (I usually fast forward through the part with the Easter Bunny, because my one year old daughter gets a little restless during this part). However, I think that this is a great video for the holidays. My one-year-old loves it!"

"I have a major Elmo fan in my home. My child is only 15 months old but loves the music and Sesame Street sights and sounds. In this video many of the songs repeat throughout the storyline, my child is able to make a connection and stay focused for the duration of the story. Since I have to watch this many, many times, I have to admit it is well written, fun, and a joy to watch. Plus they included one of my favorite writers and storytellers Maya Angelou...Hooray for Sesame Street!"
My boy loves it!

"I have a two-year old that just loves this movie, and if your child is in the same age range, they will too.Nothing fancy here, just a good story for kids to enjoy. END"
