Sunny Days…Ok…so I’ve been singing this with my little boy the past few days (giggle!). I grew up watching Sesame Street. In fact, my mother tells me that at the time, it’s really the only television show she’d let me watch. My son loves watching the show and his favorite character is Elmo. My mother-in-law gave my son my husband’s stuffed Elmo from when he was a child. My point is, Sesame Street has been around a long time (40 years to be exact) and a lot of history has been made. It’s interesting to watch the same show we watched as children with my son.
On November 6, 2009, Sesame Street: 40 Years of Sunny Days will be released on DVD. Since I haven’t seen it yet, here is a little more information from the site:
For 40 years, sunny days have swept the clouds away and inspired preschoolers to learn, grow and achieve their highest potential. Relive the best-of-the-best when SESAME STREET: 40 YEARS OF SUNNY DAYS debuts as a two-disc DVD set November 10 from Vivendi Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street. Premiering on November 10, 1969, Sesame Street is the longest running children’s series and “…arguably, the most important children’s program in the history of television” (Newsweek.com). Featuring nearly six hours of everyone’s favorite Sesame Street stories, songs, Muppets™ and celebrity segments, the SESAME STREET: 40 YEARS OF SUNNY DAYS collectible set spans the renowned show’s four decades, includes never-before-seen archival footage and a limited-edition hard covered commemorative book.
I am so excited about seeing this. I have no idea if I’ll remember any of the episodes but it’s going to be fun reliving those memories. Tomorrow is the release (did you happen to see Google yesterday and today?) and the two-disc set will be available for $29.93.
