On the same day, October 24th, Sony BMG will also release The World According To Sesame Street. This documentary debuts that same day on PBS's Independent Lens, and "is a behind-the-scenes look at the unexpected dynamics of producing the most-watch children's television show in some of the world's political hotspots. The film follows productions in Bangladesh, Kosovo, and South Africa and examines how producers from Sesame Workshop take Sesame Street as we know it, and localize it with indigenous songs, puppets and educational content."

The Best of the Electric Company Volume 2 will be released on DVD November 14, 2006.
