Sesame Street: 20 Years and Still Counting DVD Review

Sesame Street: 20 Years and Still Counting DVD Review



Synopsis: Experience this captivating special that marked the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking children’s series that taught us our ABCs, 123s, and so much more! Hosted by Bill Cosby, SESAME STREET: 20 YEARS...AND STILL COUNTING! includes appearances by favorite “Sesame Street” residents like Big Bird, Grover, Bob and Maria. It also features timeless clips from past episodes; performances by Ray Charles and famed tenor Plácido Domingo (with his operatic Muppet™ counterpart, Plácido Flamingo); and in-depth interviews with the series’ creators. Sweep the clouds away and rediscover the carefree days of childhood with this delightful special! “Sesame Street” is produced by the nonprofit educational organization, Sesame Workshop.

Review: I can't believe that Sesame Street has been around for 40 years now!  This DVD collects a special documentary on the show that features clips and interviews from 20 years ago on the 20th anniversary of the show!  Its great that they're releasing all of this Sesame Street stuff this year.  I have found more and more that I appreciate Sesame Street, not just for my own memories, but for the news ones that the show continues to give my own children.  In a world of constant change, this is one show that has always been there for us!

The special is great.  Its from 1990, so it feels a little dated, which just adds to the fun.  I learned quite a bit about the production of the show and we get to see a ton of great clips of the characters and guest stars of the show up to that date.  This DVD is an absolute must for any fan of the show, serious or casual.  Its also something you can watch with the kids, which lets be honest isn't that easy to find these days!
