Learning About Letters is one of the best Sesame Street videos ever produced. The plot involves Big Bird, Telly, and others celebrating Alphabet Day, where they look for objects that Begin with each letter of the alphabet. This video also features segments from Sesame Street, and all are from the 1970s (and I think some are from 1969). Segments include Cookie Monster singing C is for Cookie, Ernie and Bert singing La, La, La, Kermit drawing an M, and cartoons such as Madrigal Alhpabet and The Villain in the Pantima Hat.
This video is really great, and nearly every major characters from 1986 is included (except for The Count, Prairie Dawn, and Elmo). Howvever, this video should have been longer. Not every letter of the alphabet is represented by a song or skit from the show. It would be hard to include segments for every letter and have a linking plot in only 30 minutes. Not only that, but this video features three segments about the alphabet, and the letter M is the only letter ti be represented with two segments. After objects that Begin with every letters is represented, Luis reads a story, The Prince Banishes the letter P, which is about the letters P. The sketch is great, but this segment should have been shown when the letter P was represented, not after every letter had an object found.
However, I definitely recommend this video. It is one of the best Sesame Street videos ever made.
