Which Sesame Street character should get a Greatest hits DVD next?

    Something hit me recently regarding character releases: They usually come out during anniversary years.

    The Best of Ernie and Bert came out in 1988. I don't know what month, so it may or may not have been after the 20th season started, and I also don't know if Sesame Workshop started celebrating the 20th anniversary in 1988 or 1989.

    The Best of Elmo was released in late 1994. I don't know whether the 25th anniversary ended or not by then.

    The Best of Kermit on Sesame Street came out in either summer or fall 1998. Sesame Workshop had already began it's 30th anniversary celebration, with the Elmopalooza special and the Sesame Street Beans line of toys (I think the anniversary PVCs were also in stores at the time).

    A Celebration of Me, Grover came out in 2004, a few months after season 35 started (and probably ended, but it was still an anniversary year).

    And of course The Best of Elmo 2 came out this year, I think after the 40th season ended, but still during the anniversary year. The 40th anniversary is still officially being celebrated, right?

    I think the time will be right by the time of the 45th anniversary for a "Best of Abby Cadabbey" release. But I hope we don't have to wait another five years (at the most) for a "Best of Oscar" or "Best of The Count" release.

    How about a Z is for Zoe DVD?

    The line up would be

    Street Scenes
    The Tutu Spell
    Three Cheers for Us
    Zoe Loves Rocco

    Zoe Says
    Just Between Us Girls
    Girl of the World
    Elmo, Zoe and Telly show empty and full by demonstrating with a house
    The Sign Language Moment of the Day: Dance
    You and You and Me.
    Little Miss Count Along
    Around the Corner with Bob
    Zoe, Baby Bear and the word yes.
    The Breakfast Club
    Read Me a Story
    Zoe dances to emotions
    My Name is Zoe

    With the new Muppet movie coming out next year it would be cool if Sesame Workshop arranged a special deal with Disney to release a new Kermit spotlight DVD.

    Hmmmm, now that I think about it, if it's not too late (and either Disney or SW are secetely reading this thread), here's how a good deal would go: Disney can give Sesame Workshop permission to have Kermit host a new compilation of Sesame Street skits featuring Kermit (a rerelease of "The Best of Kermit on Sesame Street" would be good as well), and in return the new Muppet movie can have a cameo by Sesame Street Muppet characters. Not sure if things work that easily (even if it's between companies that supposedly work well in these such things) but it would be great.

    And I've thought of some good ideas for Bert and Ernie compilations, similar to "C is for Cookie Monster".

    B is for Bert:
    Elmo scares the pigeons
    Bert's pigeon search
    Doin' the Pigeon
    Bert shows Ernie his bottlecap collection
    The Paperclip Song
    All Dressed Up
    Ernie Meets Bart
    Brad's bath
    Bert waits outside the apartment
    Bert's birthday
    La, La, La (remake... or maybe even a "La, La, La Mash-Up")
    The National Association of W Lovers
    Counting to 100 by Tens
    I've Got to Be Clean
    I Wish I Had a Friend to Play with Me
    Bonus Classic Clip: Bert and Maria's imaginary flight (or a Bert & Ernie's Great Adventures sketch)

    E is for Ernie:
    Rubber Duckie (either the original version or a "Rubber Duckie Mash-Up")
    Search for Dr. Livingston
    Ernie buries Bert
    Do You Like Me?
    The Best Friends Blues
    Breakfast Time
    One Fine Face
    Three Honkers
    Ernie tries to host a Honker-Duckie-Dinger Jambouree
    Ding-Along Song
    Journey to Ernie: Journey to Big Bird
    tall, taller, and tallest
    Ernie tries to get Ernestine to say his name
    missing cookies mystery
    the 8 salesman
    The Magic Apple
    Miami Mice
    Ernie loves his boat
    Ernie catches fish
    Things That I Remember
    Bonus: An episode of "Bert & Ernie's Great Adventures"

    I like the idea of Best of DVD's for the human characters, especially Bob and Maria and I also think an "Evolution of Gordon" concept would be cool featuring all 3 actors.
    As far as Muppet characters, I agree with Best of DVD's for Herry, Oscar and The Count...but how about Roosevelt Franklin getting his own disc? Not only could we revisit all of the old classroom skits but also we'd get his great songs and "head ball" skits (I used to love those).

    I think a new one for Big Bird should be on the list. He's had some very wonderful moments on the street in recent years, including the hurricane episodes, the 40th season premiere, and welcoming Abby Cadabby to the neighborhood.

    I was thinking, there's going to be another alphabet-themed release soon (Learning Letters with Elmo), if they do a numbers release soon, maybe they could have it be a Count spotlight release. Maybe called "Counting with The Count" and have segments with The Count that involve numbers.

    Here's what I'm thinking for a contents list:
    • Patrick Stewart: Make It So Number One (or One Potato)
    • Tune for Two
    • Sesame Street News: Three Little Pigs
    • The Count counts candles
    • The Count Hires Ernie
    • Six Feet Under
    • The Count counts flowers
    • Eight Beautiful Notes
    • Cloud Nine
    • A boy counts until The Count's hair turns blue
    • Miami Mice: The Count goes to the space station
    • Counting is Wonderful

    I know, there should be more, but I can't think of very many non-Number of the Day segments with The Count for the numbers 11-19 (some numbers could be spotlighted multiple times I guess). I guess you could fill a release like that with The Song of the Count and The Batty Bat (and The Count's visit to Charlie's Restaurant and the Count's sleepover at Bert and Ernie's apartment).
