A bit more info on that classic Sesame Street DVD

cookie monsterIn May, I relayed some news to y'all that plans were in the works to release DVDs of older episodes of Sesame Street. The always vigilant Muppet News Flash has some good news for fans: "Sesame Street: Old School - Volume 1" will be in stores on October 24. The set will include five episodes form the first five years of the series from 1969 to 1974, plus a cavalcade of clips from these early seasons. Fans can look forward to two classic tunes from the series, "Rubber Duckie" and "C is for Cookie." That's right, this was the era when Cookie Monster ate cookies and was damn proud of it, none of this "fruits and vegetables" nonsense. Of course, he also ate props and backdrops, but if Sesame Street taught me anything it's to respect people for who they are.

I am indeed excited about this. Can't wait to see which segments/eps they choose. The very first ep from 1969 is a gimmee, but I have that already, so I want MORE! :-) And, yeah, Elmo has been the downfall of the show for me as well along with many of my site's visitors (The Sesame Street Lyrics Archive). The "old school" kids, like myself, really appreciate this DVD, guys, thanks and keep 'em coming!

I can't believe no one is excited about this. I mean come on, this is the glory days of Sesame Street, like the post says, before Cookie Monster became a vegetable lover, and before Elmo came on the scene(In my opinion the worst thing to happen to sesame street during it's entire run). This is truly good news.
