Back by popular demand, it's our third installment in the Old School series, covering 1979-1984. In this set you'll see your Sesame Street friends on and off the Street! Remember when everyone surprised Maria in Puerto Rico for her birthday? Or when Snuffy and Gordon ran the New York City marathon? Bonus DVD extras like never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage will prove that we're still kicking it old school!
Warner Home Video has today announced that November 6th will see their DVD release of Sesame Street - Old School Volume 3: 1979 - 1984. This picks up from the first two volumes, released in 2006 and 2007, with more highlights from the show's pre-Elmo days (note that the puppet which became Elmo was seen on the show earlier than that, but it was 1984 when Kevin Clash took up the muppet and created the character we now all know as "Elmo"). Cost for this long-awaited follow-up is $29.87 SRP. Package art and details are not available yet, but stay tuned!
Six years after the release of Volume 1 (covering the 1969-74 period), and only five after that of Volume 2 (covering the 1974-79 period), brace yourselves for Volume 3 on DVD, covering the 1979-84 period! Not sure if any episodes containing the "Crayon Factory" segment are in the final contents. The 1983-84 season (episodes 1836 to 1965) will be the first to have the sliding words "CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP" in the end credits.
Since I was born in 1981, I'd really be partial to a Volume 4 (1984-89) since those were the earliest episodes I'd seen.
