best Sesame Street numbers video
3 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Out of all of the Sesame Street videos about numbers, this is the best one (however, I haven't seen 123 Count With Me, so I could be wrong). Produced in 1986, this video has a lot of classic number segments from the early years. The linking plot involves Big Bird hosting his own number talk show, in a format similar to The Tonight Show. The Count acts as announcer, though he does leave during the middle of the show for his own needs.

This video features segments for the numbers 1 through 10, and a few for 20. A few numbers appear in multiple segments. Included are such classics as The King of 8, Martian Beauty, Dollhouse, I Just Adore Four, two animated segments starring a country fiddle player (Two Toucans Two-Step and Four Lions at My Door), two segments featuring John-John, and more.

Unfortunately, although most of the segments are really great segments, most of them are animated or non-Muppet segments. Not very many Muppets appear in this video (just Big Bird, The Count, Ernie, Grover, Kermit, Chip, Dip, and the Honkers). It would have been great if some more Muppet segments were included, such as Harvey Kneeslappers pranks involving the numbers one, two, or four, Kermit counting Twiddlebugs, Lefty the Salesman attempting to sell Ernie an 8, The Count and Cookie Monster counting cookies or apples, Four with Little Jerry and the Monotones, a Sesame Street News segment featuring The Three Little Pigs (there have been a few of these), and Bert's Six song, to name only a few.

There are also a lot of animated and/ or film segments that should have been included. Anything from the Pinball Number Count, Jazz, Mad Painter, and/ or Baker film series of sketches would have made this video better.

However, it's still a good video, especially for those who are big fans of The Count or Sesame Street animation, or even those who are interested in 1970s Sesame Street sketches.
