So, yesterday Greg and I headed to Brent Cross to have a mooch around, and we ended up in HMV buying DVDs. We came across The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland amongst the sale items and, given our mad obsession with all things Sesame Street / Muppet related, snapped it up in an instant!
We popped it on when we got home, and I have to say, it was amazing! (*slight blush!*)
It was so weird putting the film on and finding that absolutely nothing on Sesame Street has changed in the 15 years or so since I stopped watching it – remarkable! All the ‘in’ jokes remained the same, my favourite human helper, Maria, was still there, though the only character that I didn’t see whom I would like to have seen was Aloysius Snuffleupagus (the elephant; not the random girl!).
The songs in the movie were perhaps the best thing about it (as was always the same with the TV Series).
Perhaps my most favoured Sesame Street music ever!! :oD
For anyone with kids (or just anyone like me who loves being retro), I think that this DVD is a must see!!
