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!

Well, the sound quality is so poor, it was actually hurting my ears even at low volume. it's ALL treble and raspy..
It's also very short... it's 30 minutes long, but the first half of the video are advertisements that you can't skip!! my son didn't like it and i have to agree with him... if you are looking for a good songs dvd, get kids favorite songs #2. It is much much much better and longer... another good one is strawberry shortcake...

i don't recommend this dvd to anyone..

This DVD has the same audio problem as "The Best of Elmo". I am very disappointed about the audio transfer. It's completely distorted and way too loud. The sound of Elmo actually scares my 1.5-year-old son. Try it from a video store first. Don't waste money on the DVD.

The audio on this DVD is completely unacceptable. The VHS version might be ok, but the DVD is very hard to listen to. It's loud, distorted, and easily the worst sounding DVD I've ever heard. It's worse than AM radio.

Come on, who doesn't want to like Big Bird? In the end, this just fell short. Way, way short! The movie is way way too short, for starters. My little ones LOVE their Trebellina DVD, nothing else I have tried has come close to getting the mileage that one has. Educational and entertaining AND 30 full minutes.

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.

I bought this DVD in order to play with my 5-years-old child and enhance his English skills. However, when I’ve gotten the videos abroad, those had Region 1 settings; meaning I was not able to open it from my PlayStation 3 device at home, so I’m really disappointed about Amazon knows that I’m based in Central America and they didn’t send a multi-region video for me.

My daughter did not take to this DVD as well as usual. She is an avid Sesame Street fan. However, there is a bit more talking in this one. The singing and characters keep her attention and there is less of that in this one than her others. We barely ever play this one. I would recommend the 25th Anniversary and What's the Name of that Song. They have nonstop singing and characters.

First of all, the production values on this tape are just plain poor. Secondly, there are no Sesame Street songs on the tape, and only one sketch from the show - which is the "Oinker Sisters" singing "This little Piggy."
These songs are better learned from you directly or in preschool. My toddler isn't very fond of this video, either - he knows what real Sesame Street is! If you're looking for preschool standards, I'd recommend "Sesame Street Sing Along" which has both standards and Sesame favorites.

This version is not nearly as good as the Kids Favorite Songs 2. I wouldn't recommend anyone waste their money on this, go straight for the second one.
