I've had this movie ever since I was a little girl and I remember someone asking me, "Why do you still have a Sesame Street movie in your video collection?" I tell them one, because it has a wonderful storyline attached to it; two, because it features the world-famous Jim Henson's Muppets and three, I don't mind my children watching it with me. Come to think of it, I wouldn't even be embarrassed if my children saw me watching it all by myself. It's that kind of movie, I loved it then and I still love it today.
You have to give Sesame Street credit, it's the longest running children's show on television, it's audience has grown to more than 1 million viewers, many were children when the show began in 1969 and are now introducing it to their children. You can take Barney and Thomas the Tank Engine, Teletubbies or even the Wiggles but give me Big Bird and Kermit the Frog any day.
