The Sesame Street set was recreated on the EUE/Screen Gems sound stage rather than using the original. The set was built fully raised so that the puppeteers could stand while performing rather than crouching below "street level." See more »

The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland is one of the few films to come around this year that is for the whole family. It can be for the kids because the characters are so likable (especially Elmo played by Kevin Klash) and it can be for the parents because they remember the lovable characters they used to watch as a child. Along with a good story, great characters, and better than good songs, this film teaches kids many things (like sharing and friendship) and of course the Sesame Street characters are always a delight to see on the screen.
