Sesame Street: Kids' Favorite Songs 2 (DVD)
Join Elmo and his Sesame Street pals in the second volume of Kids' Favorite Songs, as Elmo travels up and down Sesame Street asking kids to sing their favorite songs! Snuffy, Baby Bear, and Zoe help the kids sing and act out nursery rhymes, lullabies, and just plain silly songs. Sing along and find out for yourself which song is Elmo's favorite! Also features the brand-new segment, Hero Guy!
Somewhere into the so-so "Itsy Bitsy Spider" segment, the sinking feeling that Kids' Favorite Songs 2
is strictly sequel material sets in. This is a march down Sesame Street on a slow day, when the loopy monster misunderstandings and goofball gags miss a rare beat or two. Still, making merry is what the Sesame crew does best, and they succeed here, if on a less brilliant level than we've come to expect. All the usual favorites, like "If You're Happy and You Know It" and "The Ants Go Marching," get the gang and their real-life kid friends grooving, and a running joke involving a renegade meatball keeps kids 18 months to 5 tuned in to the end. Elmo hosts. --Tammy La Gorce
