There wouldn't have been an Elmo without "Sesame Street." This delightful hour-long musical extravaganza salutes America's most popular and longest-running kids show with a mixture of live action, animation, and, of course, Jim Henson's beloved Muppets singing all the classic "Sesame Street" songs. Oscar the Grouch belts out "I Like Trash," Kermit the Frog does a soulful rendition of "It's Not Easy Bein' Green," every kid's favorite muppet brings down the house with "Happy Tappin' with Elmo," and the entire cast gathers for a rousing finale of "Sing." Filmed in New York City's Central Park and hosted by Big Bird, Sesame Street's 25th Birthday features guest appearances by the African singing troupe, Lady Smith Black Mambazo; En Vogue; Savion Glover; and a veritable rainbow coalition of fresh-faced kids. A fitting tribute to the show that made learning fun, Sesame Street's 25th Birthday -- A Musical Celebration belongs in every child's video collection. -- Kryssa Schemmerling

This is a good DVD to buy AFTER you buy the very best one...What's the Name of that song?. This one has similar songs and characters but in a little bit of a different format. It has a few goofy songs in the beginning and as the DVD plays on, the better it gets. My 11 month old watches this DVD after the first one I mentioned above. If you liked the first DVD, you will enjoy this one. Hang in there and watch through the first quarter of the dvd with the goofy music. Definitely buy this one, it is a good alternative.

My girls age 18 mos and 3 1/2 can not get enough of this. The love the classic songs, I Love Trash, Rubber Duckie, C is for Cookie and they LOVE the Batty Bat. Who cares if it isn't perfection - it is fun!

"Sing Yourself Silly!" is much better. I was disappointed when I watched this with my grandson. The songs that are on the other video have been changed and aren't as much fun.

We have a few Sesame Street videos and this one is the best. Such great harmony and catchy music. Great characters and special guests. I grew up in NYC and it's nice to see them performing at the fountain in Central Park.

It feels like it was slapped together and as if they needed to landmark their 25 years but, just fell flat. It is about big bird finding la-la-er's and having no luck and then prairie (little girl) and elmo finding music from over the years. this is a very dated and un-engaging DVD by sesame street. I was so disappointed and find it one of the few we watch from our 20+ sesame dvd collection.

All of my three children have loved this video. It has a lot of wonderful ''highlights'' of songs from over the years and was put together in a great format. I highly recommend it.
