I noticed fairly quickly that the same episodes of Sesame Street run over and over on our PBS station. I have no idea why, but I thought to myself…this sure is odd considering the show has hundreds upon hundreds of episodes (Sesame Street has bee on tv since 1969). Well it turns out there are likely a number of reasons why old SS episodes no longer air…too dated, learning philosophies have changed, copyrites… Apparantly the Noggin channel aired old episodes for about 4 years, ending in 2003. But these days, 3 billion channels, and no old SS to be found.

Well, here is one of my more exciting discoveries in the last 3 months…Sesame Street: Old School. I personally refer to it as Sesame Street: B.E., meaning before Elmo. It’s not every episode, but it’s a start. This three disc set contains 5 episodes and several bonus skits from 1969-1974. Remember Mr. Hooper? Remember when no one saw Snuffy except for Big Bird? Ah, can you tell I was a fan?

If you have a dvd collection, add this set to it. Pop it in on those days when you need a dose of nostalgia…
