Sesame Street: Old School Volume 1 1969-1974 offers a sampling of the first five seasons of Sesame Street and includes the first episode of each season in its entirety as well as a large selection of classic segments from each season highlighting some of the most memorable sketches ("Bein' Green," "Rubber Duckie," "Whistle a Happy Tune," and Super-Grover in "Telephone Booth"), favorite human characters like Bob and Mr. Hooper, and guest appearances by celebrities like Bill Cosby, Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson, Carol Burnett, and Jesse Jackson. Adult viewers will be transported back in time as they witness Bert's frustration with his ever-noisy roommate Ernie, chuckle at the antics of Grover and his demanding customer in Grover's Restaurant, and wonder if Snuffleupagus will ever show himself to someone besides Big Bird. Other well-remembered moments include pinball number count, the baker who inevitably tumbles down the stairway with a handful of cream pies, the ever-munching Cookie Monster, "Here is Your Life" segments, Bert "Doin' the Pigeon," and the inevitably grumpy Oscar the Grouch. Post-Elmo preschoolers and their parents will laugh, learn, grow, and connect with one another as they share this classic compilation of Sesame Street moments. Bonus features include the original sales pitch reel (introduced by Joan Ganz Cooney and hosted by Kermit the Frog and Rowlf the Dog) and a thick booklet rich with history, trivia, and a pullout activity section for children.

|Why is this set not considered suitable for kids anymore?||
There are some odd bits that may raise the hackles on the back of some modern necks. Kids playing follow the leader through a construction site that clearly is not OSHA standard for instance.
Sesame Street characters, not the muppets, but the people are very contemporary to the 1970's. Those... Read More

|are any of the segments with the Mumenschanz dance troupe included?||
If you're looking for the Mumenschanz dance troupe, check out Volume 1 of the Muppet Show. Those DVDs have that dance troupe in one of the episodes. They're fascinating, though they freaked out my 2-year-old a little bit.

Does anyone remember a cartoon with a saguaro cactus singing about being stuck in the desert?

|Does it have the guy smiley guy who fails and bangs his head?||
Not sure if he's on the set or not, but the character you're thinking of is named Don Music (played by Richard Hunt). One of my favorites too. Keep your eyes open for him!
