A bit more info on that classic Sesame Street DVD

In 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.
