Oh hell yes!
Courtesy of Muppet News Central, October 24 will see the release of Sesame Street: Old School Volume 1.
# First time ever on DVD – the best of the first 5 years of the ground-breaking show, Sesame Street
# Includes over 7 hours of classic content
# 5 complete hour-long episodes
# Over 45 bonus segments:
* The original pilot for the show – first time available anywhere!
* Celebrity appearances from James Earl Jones, Jesse Jackson, Johnny Cash, Jackie Robinson
* Classic segments every parent will remember: "I Love Trash," "Rubber Duckie," "C is for Cookie"
* Original animations include Ladybug Picnic, Alligator King, King of Eight, Pinball Number Count
7 hours of content! While that’s a whole lot of Sesame, that sounds just about perfect to me. All I know is that it had better have "ABCDEFCookie Monster" on it:
I bought the Songs From The Street box set a few years ago. The more recent stuff is relatively lame (you can almost hear Michael Stipe cringing through "Furry Happy Monsters"), but you can’t beat songs like these:
The Pointer Sisters – Pinball Number Count
Stevie Wonder – 123 Sesame Street
Now that’s funky.
Enjoy and have a great weekend. Next week will bring a couple of posts on KT Tunstall (saw her at the China Club last night), and perhaps The Beach Boys.
