SESAME STREET: 50 YEARS AND COUNTING #Review + #Giveaway #MBPHGG19


Thanks to Shout Factory Kids for providing me with product for this post. All thoughts are my own.

It's a celebration, and you're invited! I can't think of anything more wonderful than celebrating an anniversary or milestone, and what a milestone we're celebrating today! SESAME STREET is celebrating 50 years (and counting) of delighting children and families all over the world! I loved Sesame Street when I was little, and it's been such a joy to watch my children fall in love with Elmo and friends. There's a brand new anniversary celebration DVD which just released on October 1st, and you're invited to read on and take a look at the details, peek at the trailer & enter to win a copy of your own!

Spanning the beloved show’s 50-year history, the collection offers five-and-a-half hours of songs, celebrity appearances, new and classic segments with the Sesame Street Muppets, and never-before-seen outtakes.


Los Angeles (July 9, 2019) – From the five boroughs of New York City to the beaches of Los Angeles, and every town in between, Sesame Street has been entertaining and teaching children for 50 years. Now, on October 1, 2019, Shout Kids and Sesame Workshop proudly present a birthday bash for the beloved brand with the release of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting on DVD and digital download.

The first disc in this very special 2-disc set features some of the greatest Sesame Street moments from yesterday and today: fan-favorite animations like “Ladybug Picnic” and “Pinball Number Count”; new and classic songs from Kermit the Frog’s soulful “It’s Not Easy Being Green” to will.i.am’s empowering anthem, “What I Am”; and timeless interactions between children and the Sesame Street Muppets. 50 Years and Counting will also let fans revisit Sesame Street’s many unforgettable celebrity appearances: Patti LaBelle putting a glamorous spin on the alphabet song; Amy Poehler teaching the gang new vocabulary words; R.E.M.’s joyful rendition of “Furry Happy Monsters”; Ricky Gervais trying -- and failing -- to sing Elmo to sleep; and other guest appearances made pop culture headlines while embodying Sesame Street’s inclusive lessons and values.

The second disc is an exclusive collection of the most iconic “Street Story” segments from Sesame Street’s 50-year history. With help from kids’ favorite characters, the early childhood experts behind Sesame Street helped generations of families tackle big conversations through little moments like these: the neighborhood’s poignant farewell to Mr.Hooper; the dramatic reveal of Big Bird’s not-so-imaginary friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus; and the debut of Julia, the first Sesame Street Muppet with autism. 

Check out the DVD trailer!



50 Years and Counting also lets fans revisit the lighter side of the Street: Super Grover’s many crash-landings, Bert and Ernie’s classic comedy-duo antics, moments with human friends like Bob, Maria, Luis, Susan, and Gordon, and much more. There are even a few never-before-seen outtakes with Jim Henson and other original performers! With over five-and-a-half hours of content from all five decades of the beloved show, 50 Years and Counting offers something for everyone – from the very young to the young at heart.

We adore this DVD! It's just filled up to the very last minute with the warmth, acceptance, and love we've come to know and expect from Sesame Street. I feel reconnected to a beloved show from my childhood which taught me such valuable lessons. Growing up in NJ, a melting pot of diversity, I had neighbors of just about every ethnicity you could imagine. It was amazing and it's something I truly miss and wish my kids could experience. Sesame Street is helping me teach my 3-year-old about being a good friend and neighbor to everyone we meet, and that we're all different, have the same feelings. Sesame Street stands the test of time- a true classic and household name for all ages.



Customers who buy the set at select retailers will also receive an exclusive Sesame Street frame, while supplies last. The frame features fan-favorite characters and is the perfect place to house a 2”x 3” photo of a special Sesame Street fan.


Look for this title in our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide!
