[Everyone is looking for Big Bird]
Oscar the Grouch: Big Bird! Oh, I've searched everywhere, and there's no sign of that oversized finch! And if I see another masterpiece, I'll go mad! Pretty, gold frames, and there's no mud on them. Yuck!

Oscar the Grouch: I wonder what's in there.

A Wonderfully Weird Sesame Street Movie
13 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I very highly recommend this Sesame Street film for you and your children to watch. It is supposed to guide viewers through the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, but it is done through the memorable characters of Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, and Big Bird. Kids can also get to learn a little bit (albeit filtered through the lenses of Jim Henson productions) about Egyptian mythology. Older viewers(those between the ages of eighteen and about thirty) will thoroughly enjoy this as a piece of nostalgia and camp, especially as relived through memorable characters of their childhood. One can't help but to laugh at the weird juxtaposition between Big Bird and the ominous Egyptian god of the dead, Osiris. Cookie Monster's song, which helps him remembers not to eat pictures of fruit and other food products, is hilarious and the most memorable part of the film.

Viewers of all ages will love this movie, so sayeth Osiris.
