Elmo Loves You (Sesame Street/Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C     Extras: D     Main Program: C+



Elmo remains popular, no matter what, with not everyone finding him to be their favorite Muppet.  However, Elmo Loves You is a short but interesting new DVD program (46 minutes long, similar to other such releases in the series) that is meant to build self-esteem in child viewers more directly than these shows usually do and does a fine job as a result.


The cover even has a silver heart that is mirror-like so children can see their face in it, which is a nice gesture.  Trisha Yearwood, R.E.M. and John Legend even stop by to help get these messages across and it is solid viewing when all is said and done.  Sure, you expect these shows to be good, but this one delivers when it counts and maybe we should give Sesame Street and Elmo more credit.


The 1.33 x 1 image is not bad like the previous DVDs in the series, with nice color and a good look for an analog NTSC shoot, but the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is surprisingly problematic and distorted throughout.  There are no major extras and we will not count trailers.
