very comforting, and a nice 49 mins. long
on March 23, 2008
Our 22-month-old daughter used to only love Elmo, but this really introduced her to Bert and Ernie, and she adores them now. This is a charming video, mostly consisting sketches from past episodes of "Sesame Street." But the scenes of B&E at home getting ready for bed are extremely funny. And a song later in the vid in which Bert, Ernie, Prairie Dawn, Cookie Monster and the now-defunct Herry look out the window and sing "I think that it is wonderful ..." is very sweet. I don't know whether this will make your child want to drift off to sleep, because we watch it mostly during the broad daylight. But it is indeed comforting. I've seen it dozens of times and am not sick of it yet. And when my eyes do start to glaze, I can get up and do the dishes or whatever. The thing is 49 minutes! Much more cohesive than the abrupt, stop-and-start "Elmo's World." Speaking of my least favorite red furry monster, he's in two small sketches in this video, but he's just a bit player. If your kid is expecting Elmo to be one of the stars, you may be disappointed.
