I have to admit, there are times when I watch things as I enjoyed as a child, and I question how I liked whatever it was. This is not the case with Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. Who doesn't appreciate the fact that Bert and Ernie would sell their ducky and paperclips to buy gifts for eachother?
This is a movie that I will enjoy for many years to come. I cannot wait to have children of my own to share it with.
If you or your children have ever watched Sesame Street, this video is a MUST OWN. Although it doesn't feature the newer characters, there is plenty of Bert, Ernie, Big Bird, Oscar, Cookie Monster, and of course all the people in the cast that I was familiar with as a young child. This video makes me laugh to this day! It features a variety of charming and funny scenes, and keeps you involved from the very beginning when the whole Sesame Street gang goes ice skating.
This video, although great for kids, will make you laugh along with them as you watch it!
You, your child, and anyone you show it to will love it!
You will remember that heartfelt song - Keep Christmas With You, and it will bring tears to your eyes!!!
This program was made in the 1970's, but I don't feel as though it's dated. Kudos for releasing it just the way it was, and not making an updated version of this.
***WARNING: FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***
The story starts out at a skating party, where Oscar the Grouch asks that fateful question: "How does Santa Claus get down all those skinny little chimneys?" Big Bird and his friend, Patty, have to find out right away! So Kermit the Frog and Grover ask some kids how they think Santa does it (some of the kids responses are really interesting).
Another storyline is a classic take of the O. Henry story, "Gift of the Magi" where Bert and Ernie are trying to think of what to give each other for Christmas. Neither of them have any money so they each trade their most prized possessions to Mr. Hooper to get each other a present.
One of my absolute favorite parts of this whole special is Cookie Monster writing a letter to Santa. Or at least trying to. I won't go into great detail about this one, you and your kids just HAVE to see it for yourselves!
***END OF OVERVIEW***
Anyway, this has always been one of my favorite Christmas programs, and I think it's great for kids of any age.

It might not be what you expect, it's an older production of an "on ice" special. Many of the puppets will look a bit off, and it's pre-Elmo.Published 1 month ago by Rowland Coad
