Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting! Now Available on DVD and Digital Download ~ Enter to Win a DVD (3 Winners)!

It's hard to believe that the iconic Sesame Street has been around for 50 years. Those lovable characters haven't aged a bit! Now you can join in Sesame Street's birthday celebration with the chance to win a DVD copy of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting! Read on...

From the five boroughs of New York City to the beaches of Los Angeles, and every town in between, Sesame Street has been entertaining and teaching children for 50 years. Now, on October 1, 2019, Shout Kids and Sesame Workshop proudly present a birthday bash for the beloved brand with the release of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting on DVD and digital download.

The first disc in this very special 2-disc set features some of the greatest Sesame Street moments from yesterday and today: fan-favorite animations like “Ladybug Picnic” and “Pinball Number Count”; new and classic songs from Kermit the Frog’s soulful “It’s Not Easy Being Green” to will.i.am’s empowering anthem, “What I Am”; and timeless interactions between children and the Sesame Street Muppets. 50 Years and Counting will also let fans revisit Sesame Street’s many unforgettable celebrity appearances: Patti LaBelle putting a glamorous spin on the alphabet song; Amy Poehler teaching the gang new vocabulary words; R.E.M.’s joyful rendition of “Furry Happy Monsters”; Ricky Gervais trying -- and failing -- to sing Elmo to sleep; and other guest appearances made pop culture headlines while embodying Sesame Street’s inclusive lessons and values.

The second disc is an exclusive collection of the most iconic "Street Story" segments from Sesame Street’s 50-year history. With help from kids’ favorite characters, the early childhood experts behind Sesame Street helped generations of families tackle big conversations through little moments like these: the neighborhood’s poignant farewell to Mr.Hooper; the dramatic reveal of Big Bird’s not-so-imaginary friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus; and the debut of Julia, the first Sesame Street Muppet with autism.

50 Years and Counting also lets fans revisit the lighter side of the Street: Super Grover’s many crash-landings, Bert and Ernie’s classic comedy-duo antics, moments with human friends like Bob, Maria, Luis, Susan, and Gordon, and much more. There are even a few never-before-seen outtakes with Jim Henson and other original performers! With over five-and-a-half hours of content from all five decades of the beloved show, 50 Years and Counting offers something for everyone -- from the very young to the young at heart.

Customers who buy the set at select retailers will also receive an exclusive Sesame Street frame, while supplies last. The frame features fan-favorite characters and is the perfect place to house a 2”x 3” photo of a special Sesame Street fan.

Sesame Street’s yearlong 50th anniversary celebrates the timeless lesson that Sesame Street has always taught: everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from, is equally deserving of respect, opportunity, and joy. Throughout 2019, families everywhere can join all their furry and feathered friends in celebrating Sesame Street’s past, present, and future with a nationwide road trip, celebrity- and fan-fueled social media campaigns, new social impact initiatives, and a star-studded primetime special that will kick off the show’s 50th season.

Fans are encouraged to share their favorite Sesame Street memories across social media this year using the hashtag #ThisIsMyStreet.

  1. This is super difficult to answer because I love Bert a lot and Oscar the Grouch. When I was 10, I received a Bert hand puppet for Christmas and I loved it! I owned a 45 rpm of Oscar singing I Love Trash. It's a toss up!
