Sesame Street – Elmo’s Christmas Countdown (Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: C-     Episodes: C



The Christmas Special market is becoming overcrowded, but because the holiday is so popular beyond any religion, but even the most well intended can disappoint.  One such case is Sesame Street – Elmo’s Christmas Countdown in which we get some big name guests (Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow and Jamie Foxx among others) and only 44 minutes of programming.  What?!?


Yes, only 44 minutes, so considering Elmo is the reddest thing since Santa to be popular with young children you’d think we’d get much more and a show that was not so short as it is choppy.  Of course, many children will watch anything Elmo, no matter how short and Abby Cadabby is here too, so they get to be with the newest of the great Muppet duos, but if they want it, it is child-friendly enough as expected and if they want it, get it.


The 1.33 X 1 image looks very good for an NTSC analog taping, with good color, some good detail and clean recordings.  The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is also good and clear, but nothing above the other DVDs in this series.  The only extra is previews for three other titles in the series.
