5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter's favorite Sesame Street DVD March 4, 2002
Format:DVD
Of all the Sesame Street DVDs that we have, this one is definitely my daughter's favorite. Though she is only 15 months old, she now sings bits and pieces and hums the tune to several of the songs on here. When my husband and I try to watch a DVD, she will run over and grab this one and shove at us to put it in so she can watch it.
Unlike some other Sesame Street DVDs, this one actually has somewhat of a plot. Everyone on Sesame Street thinks that Elmo is going to do a top ten countdown of his favorite songs on the radio, so they all spend the entire time trying to convince him to use their favorite song on the countdown - turns out all Elmo wants is some quiet time so that he can practice his top ten countdown (all he is going to do on the radio is count backwards from 10 to 1.) The songs on here are some favorite kids' songs - I've Been Working on the Railroad, Baa Baa Black Sheep, The Alphabet Song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Row Row Row Your Boat, She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain, John Jacob Jingle-Heimer Schmidt, etc. If you only purchase one Sesame Street DVD, this should be it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic kids songs sung by the Sesame Street gang October 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The premise of this tape is that Elmo has been asked to do a "Top Ten Countdown" on the radio, so all of the sesame street characters want to be sure that their favorite song is included in the "Top Ten." As Elmo travels around Sesame Street, each of them sings their favorite song to (or with) him.
Our two year old is mildly interested in Sesame Street but she seems to really enjoy this tape. The music is lively and there's enough going on to hold a toddler's attention. The tape contains several classic children's songs such as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", and "I've Been Working on the Railroad." Throughout the tape, the concept of counting down (from 10 to 1) is repeated either by Elmo or a couple of short cartoons. Overall, I highly recommend this tape.
The only negative comment that I have is that the first several minutes of the tape contains ads for other Sesame Street tapes. I find this to be annoying because you have to fast-forward through them each time you want to play the tape. If they have to include them, I wish that they'd put them at the end of the tape.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly...not good! December 7, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD in spite of reading the negative reviews here on Amazon and decided that a 4* average rating was worth it. I was WRONG!

This DVD is SHORT about 30 mins total including the ads! Rouhgly 15 mins running time! Ridiculous!

Furthermore, I expected Sesame Street classics like Ernie singing "Rubber Ducky", "Yellow Submarine" and so on. Instead we get the Sesame Street version of a few Nursery rhymes and BAD sesame street versions at that.

My One year old who normally stays glued once Sesame Street is on WALKED AWAY after a few minutes! My 6 year old complained that the songs were "not right. They are singing them wrong!" She said. She didn't like it.

This has been a MAJOR disappointment. Better off to by Barney..at least you get FULL time with menus and the children stay interested.

In this instance, the 1 star reviewers got it dead right! This was a total waste of money!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of our favorite Sesame Street videos! November 3, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
What makes this video so good? 1. Elmo! who needs a better reason? Not my 17 month old daughter! Ok, maybe the parents need more reasons... 2. Lots of classic kids' tunes! 3. Teaching counting backwards from 10 to 1 (lots of times!) 4. For those of you who haven't figured it out yet, The Alphabet Song, Twinkle Twinkle, and Baa Baa Black Sheep use the same melody. (I'm ashamed at how old I was when I figured this out!) 5. A Bob Dylan wannabe singing Old MacDonald on the radio at the beginning. (this had my 40-something sister and me in stitches!) What, you need more reasons??? How about it's good, CLEAN fun in video and relatively inexpensive? Or that, as with just about anything Sesame Street, it appeals to a wide range of age groups with short segments, constantly changing?
Not convinced? Ok, buy it yourself--you'll see!

1.0 out of 5 stars 17 minutes of 1970's technology--find an alternative March 29, 2004
Format:DVD
My biggest problem with this DVD is that it is so incredibly short. They claim 32 minutes play time, which is a complete lie. A good part of that is commercials and credits. We clocked just under 17 minutes of actual entertainment. The commercials weren't even good ones that entertain. Credits can also be fun, but not in this movie. The kid is not interested.
My next problem is that the DVD is very old. The audio is chalky. The audio quality sounds as if they took an old video tape and digitally recorded it (as opposed to 'digitally remastered').
There is no menu and no chapters. You can't fast forward to the actual movie, you have to manually forward the movie. It's as if they took an old VHS tape and put in your DVD player. One would think that Sony could invest $20 in software to make the few adjustments necessary.
I think that this DVD is worthless. Do not be taken in by its low price. $1 is too much to pay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific video . . . with one exception! March 16, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Our two-year-old loves this video! It has helped her to learn classic kids' songs such as "Baa-Baa Black Sheep" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star". The video includes all your kids' favorite Sesame Street characters and has a great, easy-to-follow storyline! I do have one warning for parents with very young children: if your kids are not yet well versed in counting from one to ten, you might want to consider holding off on this video. Throughout the show, Elmo is repeatedly practicing counting BACKWARDS from ten to one. This is great for young counting pros, but it seemed to confuse our daughter who had just mastered the first ten digits.
