Editorial Reviews

Sesame Street has always focused on ABCs and 123s, but what happens when the Muppets on the Street become “Mad, Mad Men” teaching emotions on Madison Avenue, or emergency room doctors helping letters in “A’s Anatomy?” Hilarity ensues! Education mixes with entertainment in this special 2-disc set that includes both recent favorites like “30 Rocks,” “Preschool Musical” and “True Mud,” as well as old school classics like “Hill Street Twos,” “Hey Food” and “Twin Beaks.” All of the best Sesame Street Spoofs have been gathered in this treasure trove that the entire family will enjoy! Includes the Internet sensation Grover “Smell Like a Monster” Spoof, a never-before-seen “Jon and Kate Count to 8” Spoof, and classic “Beat the Time” game show clips starring Guy Smiley!

5.0 out of 5 stars Henson fans will like disc #1 July 21, 2011
By ferrell
if you are like me and are an "older" pre-Elmo fan of sesame street and bought the 40 year anniversary box set Disc #1 will be right uo your alley.in fact out of the whole box set (including the second disc)there is only ONE elmo skit and it is with Guy Smiley so all the Henson fans will like it..the first disc does repeat a couple of skits from 40 years,old school but not a whole lot,however most Classic characters are on this disc but the second disc,which is ALL post Henson and mostly within the last 8 years or so,has only a couple "classic" characters because most of the more recent parodies they tend to use "anything Muppets",for those who don't know Anything Muppets are those generic looking muppets that are either kind of walking around in the background or they are used just once,so with disc two we get mostly those type of characters,of course we do get a couple grover and oscar and count skits on the second disc..overall the parodies are kind of funny and are aimed at the parents of the kids,so you will get more 'ADULT ORIENTED" type of humor,there are alot of paraodies that are missing which makes me wonder if they are going to do more volumes..so if yo like classic sesame street then you should get it just for the first disc,,by the way Jim Henson is on MOST of the skits on the first disc doing voices somewhere so that was neat of them to do for us older fans..here's hopes for more Henson releated dvds in the future..

4.0 out of 5 stars Aimed as much at adult viewers as to the youngsters July 10, 2011
Judge Clark Douglas, DVD Verdict--In a nice touch, two hours of spoofs are spread across two discs. This is a good thing for two reasons: it permits parents looking for something a little shorter than feature-length to pop one of the discs in for their kids and it separates the vintage pieces from the newer ones. The older spoofs are presented on Disc One, and they're a delightful reminder of just how much cheerful wit Jim Henson brought to the program in its heyday. While many of the pieces have educational elements (a classic Bruce Springsteen song is turned into "Born to Count"), others are nothing more than good-natured silliness (a puppet version of Madonna performs a tune called "Cereal Girl").

The disc does a nice job of mixing up the pace, shifting back and forth between song parodies, "Monsterpiece Theatre" installments (with your host, Alistaire Cookie), some Guy Smiley game shows and a handful of special reports from Kermit the Frog. There are a lot of highlights, but my favorite is a little piece called "Twin Beaks." There are so many delightful moments, from Cookie Monster's insistent declarations of "Me think this is darn fine pie" to a visit with "the log bird" to the introduction of a shady avian character named David Finch. Volume One is grin-inducing fun from start to finish.

We move into the somewhat less consistent present with Disc Two, which offers parodies of considerably more modern television programs. The content is still good-natured fun, but the hit-to-miss ratio is roughly 1:1. On the plus side: The Count watches Six Feet Under (there are six feet under a table, just waiting to be counted), the aforementioned Mad Men parody, and the "Grouch-BO" presentation of "True Mud."

Over two hours (and 40+) parodies that Adults will love even more than their kids!

For over 40 years Sesame Street has tried to work on two levels. While teaching kids things like numbers, letters, science and geography (not to mention health and manners as well) they want parents - who watch the show with their kids - to be entertained as well. Hence, the celebrity appearances and the parodies of pop culture. This two-DVD set gathers some of the best of these parodies into one neat package. Each Disc runs just over an hour and there are a couple of short bonus clips added to each. (I'm not sure why these are listed as "bonuses" as these compilations were never aired on TV in this format. But, what the heck, they are fun.

Volume 1 contains a lot from the earlier years - and has song parodies too - while Volume two parodies mostly shows from the last seven years. Those who grew up with Sesame street will find memories in Volume 1, while discovering new "spoofs" that they have never seen (they were probably at work when the shows aired) on Volume 2.

My favorites of the 20+ spoofs on Volume 1 (nicely indexed so you can go to these directly on repeat viewing) are "Twin Beaks" (a spot-on parody of the cult favorite "Twin Peaks" right down to a character named "the log bird") and the Springsteen take-off by The Count (who else?) titled "Born to Count". There are many more here but I'll let you discover them.

Volume 2 (the newer material) brings back The Count - this time with parodies of "Six Fee Under" (counting number of feet under the bed), "24" (the whole plot takes place in 24 seconds), and the outrageous "Desperate Houseplants" that has some real adult innuendos that will fly way above kid's heads but be readily apparent to the adults watching.

Volume one is old-school sesame street and volume 2 is more recent. It is very funny and shows many great spoofs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive. January 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love Sesame Street, especially the old episodes. This DVD set only has a few clips or many different episodes. If you watch this once you really don't need to watch it again.
