Editorial Reviews

Can you dig it? Sesame Street: Old School Volume 2 picks up right where Volume 1 left off, including all the grooviest Sesame Street memories from 1974 to 1979! You’ll see cats like Don Music and Roosevelt Franklin, Guy Smiley and Fat Blue. Break out your boogie shoes for far out classics like "What’s the Name of That Song?" and "Telephone Rock!" Rediscover the Sesame Street of the 1970s -- the place where you learned about letters, numbers, and loveable furry monsters. Catch you on the flip side!

You get one episode for each year, thats it.
Christmas Record Collector
I loved watching this with my daughter, old school Sesame Street is so much better than the junk on these days.
C. Madden
For some of us, Sesame Street really helped form the basis of how we viewed the world.

This DVD set, released on my 40th birthday, proved the appropriate gift!

But let's get the negatives out of the way first, to explain why I gave it four stars rather than five:

1) One reviewer for Volume 1 complained that there was too little material extracted from a six-year period of broadcasts. Unfortunately, Volume 2 presents the same limits.

2) If a Volume 3 is ever released, please omit the Falling Baker skit for the Number Two. With the current two volumes, it's been repeated to death. Give us more variety -- at least treat us to that elusive Number One skit (Baker falling with a wedding cake).

3) Same packaging is used as in Volume 1, with two of the three discs annoying stacked on top of each other.

4) One Super-Grover skit appears to be needlessly edited with recent material.

5) That irritating disclaimer saying the DVDs may not be appropriate teaching material for today's kids. (Might the lobster-trap segment be too un-PC?) My 3-year-old nephew absolutely loves watching Volume 1, so I anticipate the same reception for Volume 2.

Nonetheless, this DVD set almost earned five stars from me for two main reasons:

1) The nostalgia effect was powerful enough to nearly override the negatives.

2) There's one absolutely can't-miss-feature in Disc One -- the test pilot used to pitch the show to PBS! It's one of the freakiest gems in this release, with a heavy and admirable "Soul Train" streak running through the episode, an atypically rude Mr. Hooper, no kids singing "Sunny Day" (it took a moment for me to recognize the voice), and precious animated skits that I wish had been included in Volume 1 (notably Triangle & Square). And is that the actor that I think it is, playing a FOURTH Gordon??!!

Genius Products picks up the reigns for this second volume of nostalgic Sesame Street episodes aimed at adults who remember the series from their childhood.

The set contains five complete, hour-long episodes from the 6th through 10th seasons, 57 bonus segments, an unaired test pilot, a 12-page booklet with behind-the-scenes information and photos, and a special collectible animation cell from the classic animated segment "Pinball Number Count" featuring vocals by The Pointer Sisters.

Episode content includes the first episode with Roscoe Orman, the actor who still plays Gordon today. Also the first appearance of Muppet characters Rodeo Rosie, Oscar's trashman Bruno, the Two-Headed Monster and Barkley the Dog. Famous songs include "What's the Name of that Song?" and "A Song From Kermit" with celebrity appearances by Judy Collins, Henry Winkler (as the Fonze), Paul Simon, Lily Tomlin, Richard Pryor, Ray Charles and others.

Again the disclaimer is on the Old School Sesame Street sets, claiming that some bits may not be suitable for todays children. This must be a joke. Why would anyone find this material unsuitable for any children? This is the cream of the crop right here. I put this thing in for my kid, and he watches in a way he watches nothing else, not even the modern "appropriate" Sesame Streets that are on TV these days. If I had to choose one thing to let my kid watch, it would be these Old School Sesame Streets. Lessons go far beyond the ABC's. Sesame Street old school deals with everyday life in an honest way, it is entertaining and hillarious too. I think so.
The show these days makes an effort, but is bogged down too much with PC values, which make it not as fun as the old schools.
Some of these characterizations are very plainly real, which is what makes them work so well. You have some characters like Don Music, who throws a fit when he cant get his lyrics right, or Jack-Be-Nimble, who is portrayed as a hippie biker type who gets mad at Kermit when Kermit corrects his mistake. "Hey! Get off my case, Frog!" ...by todays standards thats probably not as peachy clean as it should be. But as any kid who grew up with old school version of Sesame Street will know... It's not bad to be mad.

On this set you get the season premieres from seasons 6-10, and bonuses. The thing with sesame street is that it purposely repeats bits all the time, which is the point of the show, so kids dont forget. So as in the first volume, some bits get repeated on the DVD. I would say that a third volume is necessary, staying away from full episodes and just giving us the leftover segments from the first ten years.

I couldn't agree more with you Raul.
The first three episodes were chalk full of segments that I remember fondly(I managed to view the entire three discs all in one evening).

But it's still disappointing how they only have one episode from each season.Plus I was also getting annoyed with the repetitive showing of the Baker's # 2 segment,as well as the Jazzy Spies # 2 segment.

It was quite a treat to see the unaired pilot episode.I never even knew such an episode existed.Ernie and Bert's home looked rather strange.

Not only was"Old School"the era before Elmo and Zoe,but before Telli,Grungetta and Gina as well.Olivia is seen in the two later episodes of disc three.

I was also glad to see Buffy Saint Marie in this set.I'm a big fan of hers.

Suggestions for new old school Sesame Street DVDs

Yeah, I'm most looking forward to Volumes 3 & 4 and would probably buy a fifth volume as well. It'd be pushing it for me to exceed that point as I was born in 1979 and probably stopped watching it around 1991 (which was a long time to watch it but it was mainly for the humour).

I like your... Read More

Will there be a Sesame St. Vol. 3?
We can only hope...

Well, I guess we can also email/write to the DVD distributors (Sony put out Volume 1, but someone else did Volume 2... Shout Factory? I don't remember at the moment) and beg. Sesame Workshop too! 2009 is the 40th anniversary of the show. All the more reason they should be... Read More

Sesame Street Old School Volume 2
