Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Sesame Street has been educating and entertaining kids for 40 years. But the kind of TV programming for children that we currently take for granted didn't exist until Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett dreamed up the concept of curriculum-based, educational children's television in the late 1960s. By 1969, lots of research, consultation with educators, and testing had culminated in Sesame Street--a show that was groundbreaking not only for its educational content, but also for its integrated cast and realistic setting. Amazingly, the show hasn't really changed all that much in 40 years--it still maintains its focus on educating kids and helping them understand and deal with things they're likely to encounter in their real lives. It accomplishes those goals with great characters, skilled puppetry, and the latest technological advances in animation. Summing up 40 years of Sesame Street programming in about five hours is no easy task, but this two-disc set is a great compilation of "best-of" memories, arranged by season. Classic scenes with Ernie singing "Rubber Ducky" and Kermit crooning the moving ballad "It's Not Easy Being Green" are obvious favorite choices, as are recurring segments such as the "Pinball Machine Count" (sung by the Pointer Sisters), "Ladybug Picnic," "Monsterpiece Theatre," and Cookie Monster attacking pile after pile of cookies. Scores of famous singers, actors, and sports stars have guest starred on Sesame Street over the years. This compilation includes performances by Lena Horne, Henry Winkler, Mr. (Fred) Rogers, James Taylor, Smokey Robinson, Pee-wee Herman, Marilyn Horne, Tony Bennett, Robert De Niro, Olamide Faison, Alicia Keys, Matt Lauer, David Beckham, and Neil Patrick Harris. In addition to an assortment of typical Sesame Street segments featuring everyone's favorite characters, both Muppet and human, there are also several hugely memorable episodes, including when Big Bird learns that Mr. Hooper has died and isn't ever coming back, Luis and Maria's wedding and the birth of their first child, Snuffy's first appearance before someone besides Big Bird, and the time a hurricane blew away Big Bird's nest. Other favorite segments like "Elmo's World," "Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures," various alphabet and counting songs, and a star-filled rendition of "Sing, Sing a Song" are also included in the compilation. Among the bonus features are optional pop-up facts and "Behind the Street" scenes; interview footage with actors/puppeteers, producers, and puppet designers/builders; TV montages; a fan-favorite scene; and a preview of "Abby's Flying Fairy School," a segment that features Sesame Street's first-ever CGI animation. Whether reliving childhood days watching the show or sharing it with a whole new generation, everyone will be thoroughly entertained by this great collection of Sesame Street programming. --Tami Horiuchi

as soon as the pictures came across the screen i was 4 years old again! my daughter who is 21 months sat with me for a full hour just as mesmerized as i was! there were a few clips that i could not remember at all and some that i was suprised that were used seeing as how this is supposed to be the "best of" sort of thing. there were some that were left out that i was disappointed, like when buffy st.marie lived with oscar. overall this was well worth the money and i would recommend it to any sesame street fan of any age!

It was just that good! Twice for my Two year old because she watched it so much we had to get another one just in case! Also bought it for a friend. It is the top Sesame Street DVD a must have! Hours of giggles and learning and its great for anyone at any age to enjoy! Also will give any caregiver a chance to clean or cook while little minds are occupied. A great combo of songs from my childhood ( I am in my Thirties) and any child or even Grand-parent may remember. A must buy! Also I want to add that you get a little leaflet with this purchase. Not just a DVD!

This is great. You get the best of all the previous seasons of sesame street. It never gets old. My son loves it and the lessons and puppets relate no matter if it's the 70's or the 2000's

Love it. All the best in 2 DVD's. If you grew up watching Sesame Street in the late 60's and stopped, this is perfect to catch up on all the pivital moments in the neighbourhood. Plus your children will love it. Who knew Mr. Hooper was so hairy?! :)

My 1 year old granddaughter loves Sesame Street and her parents live in a rural area that has spotty internet. These DVD's have been a life saver and love the way they take you back over the year for a show that educates our children. Extremely happy with our purchase.
