it’s time for A to Z with Sesame! Little ones will love to learn their ABCs with classics such as
“The Beetles Perform Letter B” and “C is for Cookie” plus animation, parodies, and the best from
recent seasons covering all 26 letters. Celebrating the alphabet alongside their furry friends are
Norah Jones duetting with the letter Y, Tori Kelly trying a little kindness, and Pharrell Williams
belting it out for the letter B. Maya Angelou stops by to talk hugs, Sheryl Crow helps “I” soak up
some sun, and Ricky Gervais attempts a lullaby. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Katherine S. comments,
“Every single scene of Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet is lovable. This DVD has the funniest
songs and parodies for each letter of the alphabet. Each part has so many cute characters and
great lessons for the whole family.” Ethan P. adds, “This DVD is about learning the
alphabet. Mostly all of the characters from Sesame Street sing the alphabet and encourage the
kids to sing along. There are about three scenes or songs for each letter so that you can
understand how to use each one. There are also very different types of scenes and songs, each
of them really cool and fun, so it keeps you entertained.” Ivey H. chimes in with, “All of my favorite
characters make an appearance such as Big Bird, Bert, Elmo, Cookie Monster, the Grouch and
many more. The music, songs and lyrics are fun to sing along with and are education as well. I
love how everything in the video relates to the topic of learning your ABC’s.” Will C. wraps it up
with, “There’s even a bonus feature, Elmo’s Amazing Alphabet Race and ABC-themed printable
activities. Since it’s a compilation of segments from over the years, there’s a wide range of styles
representing older and newer segments.” See their full reviews below.

Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet

Every single scene of Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet is lovable. This DVD has the funniest
songs and parodies for each letter of the alphabet. Each part has so many cute characters and
great lessons for the whole family. Your children will love to learn their ABC’s with all of their
favorite characters.
Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet has two hours of fun for everyone! It spends approximately
five minutes on each letter. We see a wide range of themes from Tori Kelly singing about
kindness to Chance the Rapper in a play with Cookie Monster. In all cases, we are learning about
the alphabet with so many talented artists. It’s a mix of old and new Sesame Street episodes
such as Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus singing a song together to Sia singing about how she
loves songs.
The DVD includes many of our favorite Sesame Street characters including Elmo, Big Bird and
Cookie Monster as well as some of our favorite people in real life including Maya Angelou and
Pharrell Williams. I love the songs because it makes you want to sing along. Also, some of the
songs are parodies, which I very much enjoy. My favorite part is when Elmo can’t sleep so Ricky
Gervais comes in and sings a “celebrity lullaby”.
Throughout this DVD, there are a lot of positive messages. My favorites are learning is fun and
using your voice in a fun way.
I give this DVD 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 2 to 7. Adults will also like all of the
parodies of the songs. This DVD is available now. I totally recommend buying this for your young
kids.

Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet Collection
By Ethan Persten, KIDS FIRST!, Film Critic, Age 10

I enjoyed the Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet Collection on DVD because it is funny, even for
me, and I’m 10. It is made for small children, but I still could not stop laughing and enjoying the
music.
This DVD is about learning the alphabet. Mostly all of the characters from Sesame Street sing the
alphabet and encourage the kids to sing along. There are about three scenes or songs for each
letter so that you can understand how to use each one. There are also very different types of
scenes and songs, each of them really cool and fun, so it keeps you entertained.
The songs are very catchy, and the scenes are really funny and cute. I like how they use
celebrities like Chance the Rapper. I think kids will enjoy seeing these celebrities because they
know them. My favorite part is when Sia sings for the letter “S”, and it shows her face, because
she has not shown her face before on TV. One funny scene is when two detectives confuse the
“W” for an “M” when trying to find the criminal W.
The message or point of this DVD is to teach kids how to use the letters of the alphabet and how
they sound — the scenes are put together from all of Sesame Street’s “Letter of the Day” specials.
This DVD makes it fun for kids to learn the alphabet. I believe these songs can make the process
of learning the alphabet simple and fun, and that students will like the characters. I can see it
might be particularly helpful for kids with special needs or learning disabilities.
I give Sesame Street Awesome: Alphabet Collection 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 2
to 5. This DVD is available now so look for it.
Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet Collection

The Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet Collection DVD is just that – awesome! It really brought
back amazing childhood memories of watching the show.
This particular collection teaches kids the alphabet. Not only is it educational, but provides a
source of entertainment which will keep kids interested while learning. All of my favorite
characters make an appearance such as Big Bird, Bert, Elmo, Cookie Monster, the Grouch and
many more. The music, songs and lyrics are fun to sing along with and are education as well. I
love how everything in the video relates to the topic of learning your ABC’s. There is lot of
repetition, which is a great technique for learning. Something else that caught my eye is how they
use different types of animation, such as clay and paper. I really enjoy the mix of puppetry, real
people, animals and insects. Some episodes even have celebrities singing along. Look out for
Norah Jones, Tori Kelly, Cheryl Crow and many others.
All the Muppet characters are so cute and adorable. My favorite is Cookie Monster (Frank Oz,
David Rudman), because he brings laughter to this collection. My favorite skit is when Cookie
Monster sings about the letter “C” and how cookies are good enough for me. Ryan Dillon plays
the role of everyone’s favorite loveable character – red, fluffy Elmo. Carol Spinney plays another
fan favorite – Big Bird. They use many real life animals to help you associate with the words that
are being taught. This video is very bright, colorful and cheery. You will enjoy every minute.
I recommend this for ages 2 to 7, depending on the maturity level of the child. It’s always a good
refresher for anyone who is having trouble with their letters or spelling to review the basics. The
star rating I give this is 4 out of 5 stars.

Sesame Street: Awesome Alphabet Collection is a fun introduction to the alphabet for
preschoolers. This is a two-hour compilation of animation, pop-culture parodies and favorite
segments for each letter of the alphabet. The all-star lineup of celebrity guests is enough to hold
the interest of parents too.
Sia, Pharrell Williams, Maya Angelou, Tori Kelly, Chance the Rapper and others introduce Elmo
and his friends to each letter of the alphabet. There’s even a bonus feature, Elmo’s Amazing
Alphabet Race and ABC-themed printable activities. Since it’s a compilation of segments from
over the years, there’s a wide range of styles representing older and newer segments.
Even though I’m not in this film’s target audience, I still found it entertaining to see various
celebrities on the same screen, with puppets, helping kids learn the alphabet. My favorite
segment is Ricky Gervais singing Elmo a lullaby for the letter “N”, that’s anything but relaxing!
I give this film 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for children ages 2 to 5. Sesame Street:
Awesome Alphabet Collection is available now on DVD and digital download from Shout! Kids
and Sesame Workshop. Look for it
