Editorial Reviews

Elmo loves his fuzzy, well-worn blanket better than anything else in the whole world. In fact, they are inseperable. Elmo would never let anything happen to it-until a tug-of-war with his friend Zoe sends his blanket to a far away land.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elmo Rules! November 26, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I am the mother of an 18-month-old daughter who is an absolute Elmo nut! We saw this movie in the theater and it was the first time she has sat still for more than five minutes since she was a very small baby. She hardly even blinked during the entire 73 minutes of the movie. Excellent movie and I would recommend it to all parents of children who love Elmo.

5.0 out of 5 stars We LOVE Elmo! December 22, 1999
By Amy
Format:VHS Tape
I wasn't sure how my daughter would be in a theater (she's 2 1/2 & this was our first time), but I needn't have worried. She was captivated! It was cute & entertaining for me; but she loved it. Burt & Ernie kept the concept of falling into Grouchland from being too scary, and the tunes were engaging. I highly recommend for all pre-schoolers!

5.0 out of 5 stars We've rented it twice - now it's time to buy it! May 21, 2000
By A Customer
Our almost-2-year-old daughter is captivated by Elmo and this movie, and we are too. She calls it "Elmo Banky" (Elmo's Blanket). Besides the usual great quality puppetry and music that you expect from Sesame Street, this movie suprised me in two ways.
First, the story is great for toddlers. It's about how Elmo accidently loses his special blanket and how he (with help from his friends and the audience) finds it. Our daughter "got" it immediately - and she was caught up in the excitement and villianry, all the while clutching her own special blanket.
Second, Bert and Ernie appear throughout to help the little ones through the intense parts of the movie (such as when Elmo is falling down a magic passageway to Grouchland). They remind us all that it's just a story. This kept our daughter from getting too scared.
Better than Disney!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie December 3, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I highly recomend this movie for anyone with young children. I took both my son (2 1/2) and daughter (1 1/2) to see this in the theater. I was very nervous because this was our first theater experience. Not only did my son sit still for the whole movie, he was talking about it for days afterward. My daughter didn't quite make it through the whole thing, but I didn't really expect her to. It was very easy to follow, my son was telling the story to his grandparents, aunt, and anyone who would listen. Very good movie.

I took my daughter to this movie the day she turned 14 months. She loved it and didn't move through the entire movie. Except to blow "raspberries" with the queen of trash!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know why Elmo is so popular January 11, 2004
Never let it be said that I've forgotten the way to Sesame Street. It had been quite a while since my last visit, but it was great to see all of the familiar faces again: Bert & Ernie, The Count, Grover, Oscar, Big Bird, etc. I was rather surprised to see that some of the human actors I remember are still Sesame Street regulars, as well. Then there's Elmo. Up until now, I only knew Elmo from all the commercials for Elmo-related products, so it was good to finally see just what all the fuss has been about. He's a cool little monster, and it's easy to see how he has become so popular with the youngsters; I especially love the way he always refers to himself in the third person. I also was gratified to find out just what lies inside and beneath Oscar's garbage can after all these years. Throw in some music and dancing as well as a couple of notable guest appearances, and you've got yourself a movie I really enjoyed.
Elmo really loves his blanket, and he could never bear to part with it. He loves it so much that he doesn't want to share it, even for a few minutes, with one of his little friends. About this time, a series of humorous mishaps occur to land Blanket (it's essentially a character rather than an object) inside Oscar's garbage can. Elmo dives it to get it, only to be transported (along with Blanket) to Grouchland. This is a strange new world for Elmo, a place where you aren't supposed to ask for help or be kind to others. Elmo's beloved blanket ends up in the hands of the mean and greedy Huxley (Mandy Patinkin), a man who lives by the creed "Whatever I touch is mine." In order to get to Huxley's house and reclaim what is his, Elmo must overcome a number of challenges placed in his way and must even pass the ultimate challenge of the Queen of Garbage (Vanessa Williams).

5.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly entertaining January 22, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
We took our daughter, then 15 months old, to see this movie at the theater. She sat still for the entire movie. Now that we own it on video, she sings and dances to every song. Mandy Patinkin completely outdoes himself as the evil Huxley....he's great !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kid's flick August 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This was a great movie for small children. It is also enjoyable for adults also. I found it to be very cute and entertaining! It is about Elmo, and how he gets in a fight with his friend over sharing his blanket. Well, alot of things go wrong and Elmo's blanket ends up at Grouch's trashcan. The Grouch throws the blanket down the garbage can and Elmo dives in after it, only to realize that it has been spirited to a place called Grouchland. What he dosen't know is that Grouchland is being ruled over by a guy named Huxley who has a problem with sharing things, and he has been stealing from the townsfolk, always telling them, "If I touch's MINE!" Elmo has to figure out how to get his blanket back, with the help of many colorful characters. The whole movie is great for small children. It teaches them the value of friendship and sharing, which is something they need to know about at a young age. The movie also allows the children to participate in certain scenes (ex. singing along, helping Elmo to blow raspberries, helping Elmo find his way through a dark cave). Overall, this is a great movie for children, and I really did enjoy it, which is why I have to recommend it!
